Secret Tourist Spot Japanese DON’T want Foreigners to know about

Secret Tourist Spot Japanese DON’T want Foreigners to know about

The hidden secret Tokyo Day Trip to a Japanese Winery in Katsunuma Yamanashi is something that SOME Japanese don’t want Foreign Travelers to know about. Not ALL Japanese feel this way as you can see from the video, Maruki Winery was very welcoming. Japan Winery Tours & Japanese Wine Tasting are seldom offered as tours to foreign travelers and are a hidden tourist spot because SOME Japanese Wine owners feel that they are ill-equipped to provide what they consider hospitality to foreign travelers. This is known in Japanese as Omotonashi. It’s NOT that Japanese dislike foreigners, it is simply that Japanese are not able to provide service at the highest quality because of the language barrier.
Despite this, I want to take you inside a Japanese Winery and Japanese vineyard to show you what it’s like inside and show you what this awesome experience is like. If you are looking for a Tokyo day trip or things to do outside of Tokyo, this may be a great opportunity since it is so close by and easy to get to from Shinjuku station.

Omotenashi. In Japan, there is a deep-rooted culture, which comes from sado (tea ceremony), called omotenashi, meaning to wholeheartedly look after guests. The term is a microcosm of the country itself, representing the Japanese mindset of hospitality centering around care rather than expectation.
