Lake Kawaguchi Reviews
This is a very pretty area and I wished we had left Tokyo a few hours earlier as it was a bit of a rush after traveling via several trains to this spot. Loved the snow there and had a wonderful lunch.... more »
Loved the quaint atmosphere and the unbeatable views of mt fuji. We spent a night here on a clear day and it's been unforgettable. more »
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.
