【About Kai City (山梨県甲斐市)】
Located in north-central Yamanashi prefecture, Kai is the perfect change of pace if you're looking to escape from the fast pace and high costs of the big city. It offers the laid-back, rural charm of the country while still being accessible by train from the major city of Kofu. Rent prices in Kai and surrounding areas are very reasonable, and it's a great place to live as well as work. There's plenty to do and enjoy on weekends in Kai, including hiking in the mountains, numerous wineries (as the area is famous for its grapes), and sites of interest such as shrines, a crystal gem museum, and a cable car further to the north. For those interested in exploring Kai further, travel by car is highly recommended and will cut travel times down considerably.
