What are the attractions offered by the Fuji Goko lakes surrounding the highest peak in Japan, the Mt. Fuji area, the World Cultural Heritage Site?
Fuji Goko lakes were formed by the eruption of the Mt Fuji, the highest peak in Japan. Let’s enjoy the attractions offered by each of these lakes that are designated as a part of “Fujisan, sacred place and source of artistic inspiration.”
Lake Motosuko is famous for being the model on the reverse side of the 1000 yen bill (and former version of 5000 yen bill), as well as being the heaven for windsurfers. The lake is filled with very clear water, and we are sure that you can enjoy camping or just viewing the scenery.
The view of Mt. Fuji from the northern side of Lake Shojiko has been said to be the best in Japan. Enjoy the stroll and magnificent view in the midst of the great Mother Nature.
Lake Saiko, a lake situated on the northern part of Aokigahara Jukai, the vast expanse of the forest, is a home to traditional camping grounds and minshuku inns. This is a suitable area for those wishing to enjoy the nature surrounded by the serenity.
The area surrounding the lake is well equipped with ropeway, and a sightseeing cruiser, in addition to various camping grounds, eateries, and souvenir shops. There is an onsen town called Fuji Kawaguchiko Onsenkyo, where you can take a rest after spending so many hours having fun.
The lake is popular as you can enjoy the boating and cycling on the shores of Lake Yamanakako, in addition to resort hose areas and art museums.
