Excellent views of Mt. Fuji from almost any side of the lake. Great for pictures of the mountain reflecting on the lake. There are several parking areas around the lake, and some other to walk or jog.

A truly spectacular lake in the Mt Fuji area. Don't miss the platform viewing area. We were lucky to get a bluesky day and it was amazing.

It's one of the five lakes where we can have a view of Mt. Fuji, however, it needs to be a clear sunny day for that. There's lot of options for water sports such as boating, kayaking or bike rental around the river. Lots of...More
