Lake Shojiko has the smallest surface area of the Fuji Five Lakes. Its beautiful landscape was already introduced by the British gentleman, Harry Stewart Whitworth, in the Meiji Period as “the world's most beautiful lake, Shojiko” and “Oriental Switzerland.” The lake is located at a height of 900m above sea level, with the area of 0.51 square kilometers and the depth of 15.2m at the deepest point. Visitors can enjoy fishing Herabuna (deepbodied crucian carp) and canoeing. Lake Motosuko, a dammed lake created by the volcanic activity of Mt. Fuji, and Seno-umi received the outflow of lava from Mt. Fuji at the time of its eruption in the 9th century, forming Lake Shojiko. The five large lakes including Lake Shojiko, located on a line like a bow at the northern foot of Mt. Fuji are called the “Fuji Go-ko (the Fuji Five Lakes).
