One of the most spectacular views of both the pagoda and Mt Fuji together at the top of 400steps. Definitely a must-do in Kawaguchiko

Excellent spot to view cherry blossom. Need to walk around 10-15 min up the long staircase to reach Chureito Pagoda but it's totally worth it. You can view Mt Fuji clearly on a clear sky day.

Great view to Mt Fuji, really a MUST DO. Free entrance. No tripods allowed. Lots of steps to get on to but worth it.

Stunning view of Mt Fuji with picturesque Chureito Pagoda. This is a must visit if you visit Kawaguchiko area. Take a train and walk about 20 minutes, lots of steps but worth the effort. Amazing view
