If you’re visiting Kawaguchiko (~2 hours away from Tokyo) and looking for a place to relax, how about a lunch with this view?
We enjoyed some Italian-Japanese fusion meals at Partita, a small cafe by the side of Lake Kawaguchiko. Partita was operated by Hajme Ihara, a friendly middle-aged man who not only cooked the meals but also decorated the place with an interesting European touch.
We hung out at the cafe’s backyard for an hour, just relaxing and enjoying the view. We also had a chat with Ihara-san who told us that he played some violin, and showed some pictures of the cafe during various seasons in Japan. Check out his Facebook page for more pictures, what a life!
You can get there by taking local sightseeing bus at stop 54 Fuji Omuro Sengen Jinja.
