Lake Kawaguchiko presents an image of picturesque serenity with the majestic Mount Fuji as a backdrop. Set within the borders of Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, this scenic lake is a UNESCO World Heritage site. With stunning views of the majestic mountain to be seen from the northern shores and breathtakingly beautiful cherry blossoms along the seaside promenade, the lake area makes for an idyllic getaway. Photography enthusiasts will find the Momiji Tunnel with its maple leaves irresistible for its vibrant autumn colors. Hot spring baths, museums, and the Fuji Q Amusement Park are just some of the attractions that hold a magnetic pull for tourists to the region. A ropeway that leads to a small mountain near the lake, boat tours, and an ascent up Mount Fuji are a few of the different ways of experiencing this fabulous area. Being the starting point of three Fuji sightseeing bus lines makes this beautiful region the perfect base for exploring the Fuji Five Lakes region.
