Hello, this is Minamoto. The spring-like weather continued, but it rained, and the amount of water in the waterfall increased, making it powerful. The splashes that flew in are quite cold. Now that we are in April, we are introducing the birthstone, crystal. In particular, clusters with multiple crystals densely packed are recommended as interiors. Shosenkyo Gorge is a crystal, so why not put it at the entrance? Speaking of crystals, the Symbol Tree of Happiness (Crystal Tree of Happiness), which is located immediately after entering the entrance, is also made entirely of natural crystal. There is a rainbow crystal with a rainbow in the crystal tree of happiness, so please take a picture of it and use it as a talisman. All the staff are looking forward to your visit.

Hello, this 😃 is Yamanashi Wine Kingdom Senga Waterfall. It's finally April, and it's been so cold and rainy that it seems like we've returned to winter. From the weekend, it seems that the spring-like weather will return again, so I am ☺️ relieved If you're going to take a walk, I think it's better to have good weather, but in fact, there is ☔️ a slightly unusual scenery that can only be seen when it rains For example, rainwater flowing from a rock crevice just opposite Senga Waterfall looks like 👀 a small waterfall I came all the way to Shosenkyo Gorge, but it was raining... You may think, but there may be scenery and small discoveries that can be seen because it is raining. We hope 😊 you will enjoy the various expressions of Shosenkyo Gorge In addition, by synchronizing the color with the spring season, we have prepared recommended rosé wines that are active during the cherry blossom season. Why don't you taste Japanese wine cherry blossoms with dancing gold leaf petals and Merlot rosé with aromatic flavors? It will be a time when it will be easier to take a walk, so please 😄 come and visit Shosenkyo Gorge
