Lake Kawaguchi

Lake Kawaguchiko, the most easily accessible of the Fuji Five Lakes by Trains and Buses. Not only are there great views of Mt Fuji a drawing point for Overseas Visitors, but the Nature walks. Boat rides, Ropeway and the Narutal Hot Springs through the city are all very popular. You can even stay in some accommodation that offers private views of Mt Fuji from your room.

Another option to get close to Mt Fuji is to visit the city of Lake Kawaguchiko. Very easy to access from Tokyo or even on the way back from Osaka, Kyoto directions. There are Five Lakes that surround Mt Fuji, and by far the most easy to get to is Lake Kawagiuchi by Train or Express Bus. Lake Kawaguchi is also a Hor Springs resort, and you can stay in many of the high quality Japanese Tradtional Inns (Ryokan). Located on the lake's eastern side, Lake Kawaguchi has amazing views of Mt Fuji which is only approx. 30 minutes away. If you are lucky you can even stay in a Hotel room that has a private view of Mt Fuji.    

Obviously Mt Fuji views can not be guaranteed every day of the Year. There are some months that are more likely to have Mt Fuji visible than others. Generaly mornings are better for the Mt Fuji views, and trust us, it is worth getting up that little bit earlier and wake up to be greeting by the 3000+ mountain.

Late afternoons are also great for views and if it is a fine day you may also be able to see Mt Fuji even if there are clouds covering the summit area.

There are many other attractions available around Lake Kawaguchi, such as hot spring baths, various museums, and the Fuji Q amusement park. On and around the lake itself, there are boat tours and a ropeway leading onto a small mountain next to the lake. Plus Lake Kawaguchi has uncountable numbers of Nature and Hiking tracks around the lake.

Scott Kent, our travel advisor for our Japan trip, made this trip so enjoyable and memorable! From the very beginning stages of our planning to the very last da's request for dinner suggestions, his attention to detail and concern for our whole family (15 of us) was so very professional and always timely. Our family was very impressed with the "luxiourious" accomodations/experiences/settings. We loved experiencing a Japanese baseball game, from cheers and chants while the opposing pitcher threw the pitches, to the beer girls smiling and selling beer from a keg on their backs to the yellow balloon release during the 6th inning. And a very special, surprising treat, a huge Welcome to the family sign during the game!! Other fun experiences loved by our family: taiko drumming bento box cooking lesson at the Cooking Sun geisha spotting in the Gion district taking pictures at the Fushimi Shrine visiting Nara and feeding the deer hiking around the Golden Pavilion eating green tea ice cream every day! enjoying Japan's natural beauty, the lush green mountains, rice fields and bamboo forests tasting sake shopping at the huge anime stores gorgeous morning views of Mt. Fuji Hakone Open Air Museum slurping ramon noodes visiting the Imperial Gardens... READ MORE
