Travel off the beaten path by foot around Lake Kawaguchiko for an un-interupted view of Mt Fuji at your own pace.

Such amazing views of Fujisan!!!! And little outcroppings of shops and restaurants around the bends. We even found batting cages!!! Enjoy, fish, boat, or just chill.

Many touristy stops along the red line bus which takes you around the lake but still very quaint and scenic. We were saying that it gives Milford Sound a run for its money and is heaps lovelier than Lake Geneva.
