Fujiyoshida

3.8
Theme Parks · Sacred & Religious Sites · Landmarks
A gateway to the volcano, Fujiyoshida sits in the shadow of a giant, and everything across the city seemingly points toward the iconic symbol of national pride, Mount Fuji. Unsurprisingly, much tourism in Fujiyoshida starts at the entrance to the Yoshida Trail, with travelers using the town as a base for conquering the volcano. The five impressive lakes that dot the landscape around the mountain also offer focal points for a range of hikes. Since it sits on largely infertile land, Fujiyoshida has developed into a textile manufacturing hub, and many stores sell high-quality fabrics and clothes. Use our Japan route tool to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Fujiyoshida.

Where to stay in Fujiyoshida

The majority of visitors to Fujiyoshida come to get onto the Yoshida Trail and conquer the volcano. The city itself doesn't have much in the way of accommodations, save for some standard business hotels. Far more popular with international visitors are the resort towns to the east and west, Kawaguchiko and Yamanakako. Located on the banks of scenic lakes, they offer traditional ryokans, simple hotels, campgrounds, and hostels, with the more upmarket options including onsens.
