The Winter Scenery of Minami Alps

  Winter in Minami Alps city is very cold with little snow covering the plains.
  From the north, strong dry winds blow over Mount Yatsugatake.
  Since ancient times, these strong winds help to naturally cure and dry Anpokaki (dried persimmons).
  Persimmons are hung from the eaves of houses, creating an orange, curtain-like effect – which is a great feature of the season.
  Due to the clear air at this time, the views of Mount Fuji, Mount Yatsugatake, and the Southern Alps are at their finest.
  For the same reason, the city nightscape is also beautiful.
