Four stories that the vineyards weave
As the outbound trains on the JR Chuo Line reach Katsunuma Budokyo Station on the eastern side of the Kofu basin, a scene suddenly opens up offering a view of the blue southern alps on the far side of the Kofu basin. In addition to the plains visible from the train, there are vineyards stretching out to the steep slopes that glitter with fresh green leaves between the spring and summer seasons and the light and shade of autumn colors from fall through to winter. The delicate and vibrant colors change in tandem with the four seasons in Budokyo, delighting those who visit. The story of these vineyards, which were produced over the course of many years, was designated a “Japan Heritage” in 2018.
