About our resort
the place where you rediscover the pureness of yourself
The prefectural border of the Yatsugatake Tourism Zone is composed of three municipalities: Hara Village and Fujimi Town in Nagano, and Hokuto City in Yamanashi, which are resort areas on the southern and eastern foothills of Yatsugatake. The Yatsugatake Tourism Zone Development Promotion Council was launched, unrestrained by municipal boundaries, in order to enact long-term-stay-style tourism measures. The Yatsugatake Tourism Zone was certified by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism in April 2010 in accordance with the Tourism Zone Development Act.
