Been to different Mt. Fuji viewing spots and this is my favorite - Mt. Fuji with all its glory reflected in a calm lake. There are nice table spots around the area and it seems perfect for picnics on a sunny day.

we where there on a day trip, took a bus ride to the bat caves and it was one of the most stunning rides we ever had as we coursed through the narrow road lined with blooming sakura tree, with the lake in view 90% of times. we felt truly blessed.

It was one of the best spot of our Mt. Fuji trip....but you wont be able to stay longer as there are multiple spots to visit.Indeed it was a romantic spot...lake is totally surrounded by mountains which adds to its beauty...there is a small picnic spot nearby where families and kids were enjoying their leisure time. Perfect place to visit.
