Motosuko Lake, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

(220 reviews on the web)
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.
