10 days Tohoku Tour report – day8 Matsumoto to Gotenba

We departed from Matsumoto City in Nagano Prefecture and leisurely made our way towards Shizuoka Prefecture on local roads. We didn’t have any plans to visit tourist attractions, so we enjoyed a leisurely tour while fulfilling Sam and Karen’s requests, such as buying a large carp-shaped windsock “Koinobori” and stopping by a Harley-Davidson shop.
As we entered Shizuoka Prefecture, the beautiful Mt. Fuji welcomed us. The weather was great today, and we could see magnificent views of Mt. Fuji here and there. The scenery in Shizuoka Prefecture was incredibly beautiful, and the sight of Mt. Fuji surrounded by its surroundings was truly breathtaking.
We decided to stay at a hotel near Gotemba Outlet for two nights. Tomorrow will be a full day of shopping. We plan to enjoy shopping and relieve stress as we explore the various stores. Gotemba Outlet is a famous shopping spot with a wide range of brand stores.
It looks like tomorrow will be a fulfilling day. We are looking forward to shopping and enjoying our time together. We will savor the charms of Shizuoka Prefecture and make unforgettable memories on this trip.
