Tanuki Tea House

The Tanuki Tea House in the observation area has opened.
Mount Tenjo with its ropeway is a prime spot for sightseeing with its grand views of Mount Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi, and it is the setting of the tale "Kachi Kachi Yama" known from Osamu Dazai's novel.
It is also the trailhead for Mitsutoge, which is one of the top 100 mountains of Japan in Yamanashi.

Tanuki Tea House was made in the image of the mountain tea house that appears in tales, full of Japanese spirit and a gathering spot for visitors to Mount Tenjo.

Tanuki Tea House serves light food such as charcoal-fired "Tanuki Dango", as well as "Mount Kachi Kachi Sweet and Salty Potatoes", which is a provincial dish consisting of potatoes boiled in a pot. There are also souvenirs relating to Mount Fuji and Mount Kachi Kachi.

It is connected to Usagi Shrine, which enshrines the rabbit found in the story "Kachi Kachi Yama" wishing for safety and strength for mountaineers and tourists.
We hope to see you at this relaxing spot with leisurely views of Mount Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi.

Tanuki Tea House Specialty "Tanuki Dango"

These are hibachi coal-fired on the spot and branded with the Tanuki Tea House logo.
As a pun on the word "tanuki", the Tanuki Dango is said to give you energy to climb mountains.
