Mt.Fuji 1 day fully enjoy tour
I took a one-day Mt. Fuji tour with friend, wife and 13-year-old daughter.
The one of wife’s dream is watching Mt.Fuji!
I’m so glad I could attend such a beautiful family moment!
The weather was beautiful and we could see Mt. Fuji from morning to evening without a single cloud.
Mt.Fuji was beautifully snowcapped!
1: Arakurayama Sengen Shrine
We went to Arakurayama Sengen Shrine in Fujiyoshida City the skirt of Mt.Fuji.
The shrine was built in 705 and the area is now a park.
The five-story pagoda for the war dead in the middle of the shrine is popular as a Japanese landscape that can be seen together with Mt.Fuji.
On this day, many tourists were taking pictures.
Nobody wants to leave this view.
2: Fifth station of Mt.Fuji.
We drove to the fifth station of Mt.Fuji and enjoyed the wonderful view.
We could see Mt.Fuji and the entire view of the shrine at the same time from Komitake Shrine.
Today we went to Okuniwa Observatory.
It is located at the fifth station, and a 10-minute walk from the parking lot along a path covered with lava rock leads to the observatory.
From the fifth station, you can see both views of Mt.Fuji and Japanese south alps.
4: Lake Yamanaka
Next is one of the Mt.Fuji Five Lakes and the largest.
It is also the highest at 980 meters above sea level.
In summer, it is a summer resort.
And in winter, the lake surface freezes over, making it famous for wakasagi (smelt) fishing, which is done by drilling holes in the ice.
For lunch, we had houtou, a local dish of Yamanashi Prefecture at the foot of Mt.Fuji.
The restaurant is Kosaku, the most famous Houtou restaurant in Yamanashi Prefecture.
It was hot miso flavored broth and everyone was satisfied.
We went to Oshinohakkai, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
After 70 years of melting snow from Mt. Fuji fell, it turned into underground water and gushed out in this village, creating eight beautiful ponds.
There are many houses with traditional Japanese thatched roofs, making it look like you have come back to old times.
The water is clear to the bottom, so it looks as if fish are in the air.
7: Lake Kawaguchiko
We went to Oishi Park on the north shore of Lake Kawaguchiko to see the reflection of Mt. Fuji still in full view in the quiet late afternoon atmosphere.
Would you like to enjoy the view from the lake Kawaguchiko to the fifth station of Mt.Fuji?
I’m Nobu , one heart enjoy together!!!
