Today you will join local food and drink expert Fabien Fleury for an adventure to Yamanashi prefecture, just outside of Tokyo. Fabien will pick you up at your hotel and then you will travel together to the Hokuto region of Yamanashi Prefecture. Upon arrival at Hinoharu station, you'll be picked up by a car and driver for the day. You'll first head to the Beau Paysage winery, where you will learn about how Japanese wine is made as well as see the vineyards. You'll next enjoy a delicious lunch at the winery (and no doubt some of their own wines will be on offer, too!) Afterwards you'll drive to the Suntory Hakushu Distillery. Hakushu Whiskey is one of Suntory's finest brands, internationally renowned for its high quality and excellent flavour. You will learn about the distilling process and the history of whiskey in Japan here. Finally, before you return to Tokyo, you will have the option of visiting either Misogi Shrine, home to one of Noh's best theater stages, or Kobuchizawa Art Village, which hosts one of the world's largest private collection of Keith Haring works. Please let Fabien know which attraction interests you the most. At the end of the day, Fabien will escort you back to your hotel.
