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.

Very well organised with very good, experienced advice on what to do and see. The trip was tailored to our needs and time frame - which worked really well for u and gave us maximum value for our time in Japan. Other than the beauty of Japan and the great food, our guide Ako was great and Scott (our main Japan Travel contact) took the time to hike with us up Mt Atago which was very good of him. The weather was perfect and the crowds were few, we had both of our two days at Lake Kawaguchi where Mt Fuji was cloud free! The Cherry Blossom season was late so we also unexpectedly got to enjoy the benefits without the crowds.... READ MORE
