Motosuko Lake, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

4.1
#2 of 13 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.

  • One of the Fuji five lakes, located in the West. Therefore, you can see very beautiful sunlit side seems to come here in the evening, so. So say Mt. Fuji portrayed in 1000 yen was taken from motosu Lake, but from a trailhead near the tunnel in the 30-minute climb.

  • Motosuko one of the Fuji Lakes is very beautiful. It's easy to get to the lake by the traffic. There's a great forest on the terrace and basic facilities.

  • Beautiful beautiful beautiful Lake I visited in the summer rainy season didn't have weather sunny and rainy and it is better to visit this Lake. Great Lake and the area where you couldn't see Mount Fuji. And also the area you visited did not have a lot of people and it was very quiet, unlike other aspects I passed from her side of the car and was full of beach! who enjoy water sports and various entertainment areas. Shore of this Lake filled with rocks formed from volcanoes and has retained one. There are small boats for rent and you can teglbo yours. Of course, the mountains around the Lake are green, you can enjoy sitting on the beach or in the garden. I think it's more the place reflects the beauty of nature in Japan awesome. In order not to miss the aspects that they contain many people many entertainment areas and scour before they go about activities around the Lake. There is a restaurant and a shop in a quiet area next to the Lake I went and wrote a commentary named motosokan
