    Available up to kajikaso-ji Temple 800 yen per person, the core-back view above pretty well. Regrets the episode up to rabbit Cafe, the repair. Have the path, walk up to the Observatory but go up.

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.
