Saiko Lake, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

(3.9/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Lake Saiko is the one of the Fuji Five Lakes and located in southern Yamanashi Prefecture near Mount Fuji, Japan.It is the fourth of the Fuji Five Lakes in terms of surface area, and second deepest, with a maximum water depth of 71.1m. Its surface elevation of 900m is the same as for Lake Motosu and Lake Shōji, confirming that these three lakes were originally a single lake, which was divided by an enormous lava flow from Mount Fuji during an eruption from 864-868 AD. The remnants of the lava flow are now under the Aokigahara Jukai Forest, and there is evidence to indicate that these three lakes remain connected by underground waterways.The lake is within the borders of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.Saiko has no natural drainage, but an artificial channel now connects it to Lake Kawaguchi. As with the other Fuji Five Lakes, the area is a popular resort, with many lakeside hotels, windsurfing facilities, camp sites, and excursion boats. Japanese crucian carp, wakasagi and Kunimasu were introduced to the lake in the Meiji period, and sports fishing is also popular.However, Kunimasu, which had been introduced to a number of lakes in Japan in the Taisho period were believed to have died out and become extinct, with the last reported sighting in 1935, until rediscovered in Lake Sai in 2010.

  • From the small lake on the shores around too much where you can not. But the minutes do not care who sees a natural environment. That's great to drive, or you can tour.

  • It is seen at the comparatively low compared to other Lake angle Mt. Fuji. Parking and could look very nice.

  • Upside-down Fuji well see for the relatively calm surface of the Lake. Easy to go to the Lake, and includes parking.
