  • The lake is a lovely lake but the volcano that is it's backdrop is dynamic. Mount Fuji brings you and if you're off season you can't fish,  more »
  • It is a large lake overlooking Mt. Fuji. When I visited I felt strong, cold wind. Bread and swans, and has been stopped.

  • One of the five lakes around Mt Fuji. Very serene waters and stunning views of the mountain.
  • We arrived at night to wake up to a misty and moody lake. So we decided to make our up to the hotel above the clouds for some great breakfast and amazing views.
  • Absolutely enjoyed my trip there ...
  • One of most favourite to take photo mount Fuji.
  • More than a dozen highway buses per day connect Shinjuku Station and Tokyo Station with Lake Yamanakako
