Saiko Lake, Fujikawaguchiko-machi

3.9
#4 of 11 in Nature in Fujikawaguchiko-machi
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 to 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 Taishō period were believed to have died out and become extinct, with the last reported sighting in 1935, until rediscovered in Lake Sai in 2010.

    Kawaguchiko also from medium became progressively quieter and leads to the West Lake, this lake is endemic species found only in Akita Prefecture tazawako kunimatsu, fish was believed to have disappeared were alive to this Lake. Discoverer sakana-Kun and say things in more big news. From the middle of the Lake to the West Lake and Lake Shoji-Ko number of tourists and fewer summer music camp was done actively. Seems the size of Lake Kawaguchiko half or so is not or. You should also come to this Lake, next to the small lake Shoji-Ko turn feet. It's a good place to eat your lunch while watching the Summit of Mt. Fuji on the shores. The lava where the Lake Kawaguchi is so, come so far lava on the shores of the Lake and Lake Shoji-Ko-Fuji side was exposed to the.

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.
