Lake Shoji, Fujikawaguchiko-machi
(3.9/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Lake Shōji is the one of the Fuji Five Lakes and located in southern Yamanashi Prefecture near Mount Fuji, Japan.It is the smallest of the Fuji Five Lakes in terms of surface area, and third deepest, with a maximum water depth of 15.2m. Its surface elevation of 900m is the same as for Lake Motosu and Lake Sai, confirming that these three lakes were originally a single lake, which was divided by an enormous lava flow from Mount Fuji during an eruption from 864-868 AD. The remnants of the lava flow are now under the Aokigahara Jukai Forest, and there is evidence to indicate that these three lakes remain connected by underground waterways.The lake is within the borders of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.As with the other Fuji Five Lakes, the area is a popular resort, with many lakeside hotels, windsurfing facilities, camp sites, and excursion boats. Japanese crucian carp and wakasagi were introduced to the lake in the Meiji period, and sports fishing is also popular. The water of the lake lacks transparency and has a tendency towards a greenish hue due to algae.

  • 開車來到精進湖, 專程來看「子抱富士」。秋天天黑得早, 加上天有些陰, 運氣還算不錯, 湖水還算平靜. 將相機調大光圈, 照出了懷抱孩子的富士山 及倒影. 能照到這樣, 已心滿意足. 
  • Simply said in the Fuji five lakes in the small lakes around Fuji five lakes, and small! May think. Even Mount Fuji looks clean. Started just in front of the mountain, Mount Fuji and the double vision is somewhat interesting.

  • 五湖中最小也最樸素,相較於河口湖的開發過度與熱鬧,這裡就好很多,造訪時見到許多人在釣魚,感覺十分愜意,現在公車已經會經過,如果有時間務必一訪,但要注意公車班次不多。
