Take a break from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo City and go beyond it to see the rural and natural side of Japan during the autumn. You'll begin by visiting the humble town Okutama at the far western portion of Tokyo. There, you'll be able to admire gorgeous views of vivid autumn leaves and their equally brilliant reflections over at Lake Okutama, and delight in the the stunning landscape dyed with fall colors in picturesque Mitake Valley from breathtaking vantage points. After romping around the town of Okutama, you'll travel to the city of Enzan in Yamanashi Prefecture, which is referred to as the Fruit Kingdom of Japan. In the city, you'll first have a hearty Crab Hot Pot lunch, and then you'll travel to the village of Korogaki no Sato, where you can see villagers perform the peculiar practice of drying persimmons by hanging them outside their houses. You'll also get to pick grapes and eat as much as you want during your stay there. This is a must for nature lovers and it's perfect for those who want to try something else in Japan besides sightseeing and shopping.
