Been to different Mt. Fuji viewing spots and this is my favorite - Mt. Fuji with all its glory reflected in a calm lake. There are nice table spots around the area and it seems perfect for picnics on a sunny day.

Nice view of the lake and fujisan. The boat ticket is reasonable price, I bought together with the rope car nearby. Worth to try!!

Fuji Mt. can be seen here with the different views. As this place a lake, it has wide open scenery but it doesn't need to stay for more than 30 mins because you need to visit more places to enjoy the view of Fuji Mt.
