Motosuko Lake, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

4.1
#2 of 11 in Nature in Fujikawaguchiko-machi
Water Body Landmark
Motosuko Lake affords picturesque views of the unspoiled natural environment, with Mt. Fuji rising formidably in the background. The deepest, clearest, and westernmost of the Fuji Five Lakes, it was originally part of a much larger lake, which a 9th-century lava flow then split into three. An image from its photogenic banks notably features on the 1,000-yen bill. Though comparatively undeveloped, the lake offers plenty of outdoor activities, with extensive hiking opportunities, fishing, and boating, as well as lakeside sites for campers to spend the night. Be sure to bring along a camera to capture the lake's iconic aspect.

  • Still to enjoy the set with Mount Fuji in the Fuji five lakes, Lake motosu would a great place to see Mt. Fuji as well as among trees and surrounding peaks. Famous 1000 yen Bill pattern is aiming for some time other than summer snow on sunny days and good.

  • I visited Motosuko several times in April of this year and the views were stunning, you can see why it was included on the 1,000Y note! We hired a car and drove here and I'd really recommend doing so....  more »

Where to stay in Fujikawaguchiko-machi

The lakeside resort town of Fujikawaguchiko-machi offers a great variety accommodations, reflective of the diverse reasons people have for visiting the town. Some simple guesthouses and hostels dot the more modest streets of the main urban areas, while more upmarket, resort-style hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) are located close to the lake, or sit in privileged positions just out of town. Campsites and inns in the surrounding rural areas provide particularly good options for those just wanting to get up Mount Fuji.
