Hi there! This is Ayu from Sakura Hostel Asakusa.
On the other day, I went to Yamanashi prefecture.
Some of you might have heard of ''YAMANASHI''. Do you know anything about it?
Yes, it's famous for Mt. Fuji and 5 Lakes!
But this time, it's not where I visited.
I visited Kofu city, located in the northwest of Mt. Fuji.
Kofu city has a J.League football team ''Ventforet Kofu''.
I've visited there several times because my favorite team Sagantosu played against Ventforet many times since when we both were still in the 2nd division.
On this trip, I stayed overnight in this city for the first time.
The game was held at night at the stadium in Kose Sports Park.
Shuttle bus is available from JR Kofu station, so it's easy to reach.
The stadium is not very big, but so cozy and the people are very warm.
Outside the stadium, they sell various kinds of food at street stalls.
These are my favorite!
It is Kofu's local speciality called ''Tori-Motsu-Ni'' - stew of chicken liver.
Yamanashi is also known as a big production area of grapes, so they sell fresh wine and grape juice there.
The game was scoreless tie, but I still had good time in this stadium.
Next time I will write about my 2nd day in Yamanashi.
See you around^^
