Motosuko Lake, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

4.1
#2 of 11 in Nature in Fujikawaguchiko-machi
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.

  • I went to the last day of the holiday weekend. I went to without wanting to look while camped near the Lake motosu. First impressions are very quiet. Tourist Office before going down under and has free parking. There were people still fall kayaking Lake located just minutes away. Cruise ship pier and close to mogurann, near a pier has plenty of masu and dace. Food will be able to do. You can see if you ride on the mogurann, near the other side of the Lake at the bottom of the boat a fish swimming. Is not crowded, quiet, relaxed and want people of Lake Kawaguchi, Lake Yamanaka-Ko is a recommended spot. I recommend if you want to see lakeside and Mt. Fuji seen from the back side of the tourist office from the. Is not visible and is back from free parking.
