This mountain plateau high up in the Japan Alps is only accessible in the milder months, and is one of the most charming natural beauty spots in the country. It is particularly stunning in the autumn leaf season when the drive up and the lake shore are a riot of red ‘momiji’ maple leaves. Take a sedate stroll around the lake shore or hike in the mountains that rise up so majestically here.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
