Starting from Hachioji in Tokyo's west, our journey takes us to Mt. Fuji, then into the mountains of Yamanashi and Nagano Prefectures. We watch traditional puppet theater. We alight at Mt. Fuji Station on the Fujikyu line, the closest railway to the peak, and enter a spiritual lava cave in the bowels of the mountain. As we make our way north, we stop by a Buddhist temple with a vineyard and a colossal radio telescope. Discover amazing scenery and sights deep in the mountains outside Tokyo.
