  • If it is sunny, the collaboration lotion of Kawaguchiko and Mt. Fuji is very beautiful. The time when the sunset can be seen is even more beautiful. Free parking is also scattered around the hotel, so it's easy to visit by car.

  • It was a very bad day for me personally. It was not easy to see mt. Fuji and a lot of clouds. Nature changes, but it's advisable to check the weather at least twice.

  • Amazing place with beautiful scenery, we got a ticket at the station for the bus there are 3 different routes, we got the red one. The best stop for sure was the cable car you can go up and enjoy the view. There is also a boat at the same stop. Beyond there are many stops were you can enjoy the beautiful view!
  • Must see scenic location. We decided to manually bike around to check it out. It was about 3 hours including many stops. If doing electric bike you can do it in 2 hours. Many outlook points and small little shops. If biking be careful of passing cars.
