The tourist center stands on a hill amidst vineyards on the eastern tip of the Kofu Basin. It's run by Koshu City and houses a hotel. Its underground wine cave is stocked with 150 to 200 types that visitors are welcome to taste.
Kashiosan Daizenji in Koshu City is also known as the grape temple. The Yakushi-nyorai statue, a designated national treasure inside the Yakushi-do Hall, cradles a bunch of grapes. The statue is on view to the public only once every 5 years. Don't miss the temple's original wine.
