  • A truly spectacular lake in the Mt Fuji area. Don't miss the platform viewing area. We were lucky to get a bluesky day and it was amazing. 
  • Smelt went fishing. Guests can enjoy a great scenic views of Mount Fuji can be reached in half an hour drive from the city, though. It is, however, in the winter cold. Especially at dawn.

  • By using 2 days off from work and went to the Lake in the mountains. At beautiful Mount Fuji has been to Lake many times, but that wasn't so. Clear winter air and I think would look better. I'm riding a bus from Shinjuku, Fushun Mt. Mae and plain down from Plaza yamanakako Kirara Fuji front looks like. Day 2 Sun wanted to take, but I was no longer happening too cloudy and saw nothing. It is falling the cloud after 8 pm, and all day long well take. Tourists are mostly not, to take photos often have people come by car.
