We really enjoyed spending some time here. The walk up to the pagoda, while not strenuous, gave us a nice little workout. The views from the top are fantastic and the pagoda provides a nice place to reflect upon the lives that were lost due...More

Took a hike up the long stairs leading to the viewing area for Mt. Fuji. Though it was an arduous journey for me who don't exercise much, but the reward was nonetheless breathtaking. Aimed to get there before noon, and still managed to catch a...More

Short hike up with incredible views of Mt. Fuji (we were lucky with a clear day!). Unfortunately a few days too early for the cherry blossoms. Also, not a bad place to get engaged at either :)

I've been to Chureito Pagoda 2 times, and this place is always stunning me. Mt. Fuji and Pagoda are so incredible. If you strong enough, walk the stair. For me I take taxi ^^

It's almost a cliche - the picture of Fuji in the background, and the pagoda and cherry blossoms in the foreground. It's a short walk uphill, and the view is incredible (although I was super unlucky and fuji couldn't be seen due to clouds). But...More

One of the most spectacular views of both the pagoda and Mt Fuji together at the top of 400steps. Definitely a must-do in Kawaguchiko

Excellent spot to view cherry blossom. Need to walk around 10-15 min up the long staircase to reach Chureito Pagoda but it's totally worth it. You can view Mt Fuji clearly on a clear sky day.

This pagoda is THE pagoda which you will often see in photos (especially tourism guides) with Mt Fuji in the background. We went during summer therefore it's best to go early in the morning when there's less clouds if you're lucky. From what I gather,...More

Great view to Mt Fuji, really a MUST DO. Free entrance. No tripods allowed. Lots of steps to get on to but worth it.

It is pretty much impossible to detemine the fog condition until the day of your visit. From my previous visit in the morning (around 9am) I had to wait around 1 hour up in the mountain for the fog to clear to get a decent... More
