    Compared to the popular mountain, peach blossom island a little too quiet. This may also benefit when gave us a walking tour around the island, feels very cozy! The breeze, the taste of the sea make people feel happy. Heaven sword and Dragon Sabre sword shoot on the island, although the series was a long time ago, here still feel very excited. Unforgettable tour!

    This island is not what it used to be, however, it is still a beautiful island with great scenery. Make sure to come when the peach blossoms are blooming.  more »

Where to stay in Zhoushan

Perched beneath the foothills of several soaring mountains, the town of Minakami-machi provides a picturesque stepping stone from which to explore the dramatic surrounding scenery. Buzzing with ski activity in season (December to March), the town draws Tokyo residents looking to escape the crush of city life. That said, Minakami-machi remains relatively undiscovered among the international tourist set, despite its three surrounding mountain peaks. In the warmer months, Minakami-machi vacations still offer a wealth of options: from canoeing in the national park, to the dozens of onsens, you can get out into nature at your own pace.
