Rapha Japan has it’s office in Nobeyama, on the mild eastern slope of Yatsugatake mountain: A farmer’s village of only 3500 population, the summers here create the best batch of wine grapes. Harsh conditions of 1400m elevation, with huge temperature differences from day to night makes highland vegetables unusually sweet. Cabbage, lettuce, and nappa cabbage from this area are considered to be the best and traded at high price for those who live in the metropolis. We eat for free, of course, as neighboring farmers leave them at the door every cool summer morning.

Read more on the trip and see more great photographs right here.
