A lovely place sitting in front of Yamanakako lake. It's the perfect place for afternoon tea. Cakes are very good...apple pie and strawberry shortcake. It's a very charming place that make you feel very cozy.

Fantastic! Delicious! Must visit! We didn't have a car and we are staying at a nearby campground. This was close and had good reviews. This is totally worth it, even if you have to walk 30 minutes.

While living in Japan I have seen many beautiful restaurants. But none compared to this treasure at Lake Yamanaka. While visiting during a dog show, my Japanese friends introduced me to Paper Moon. It was magical. The tea set was beautiful, the desserts were delicious....More
