Walking though Mt. Fuji Okuniwa

Okuniwa, which is 2km before the fifth station on the Mt. Fuji Subaru Line, has Japanese hemlocks, larches, and other trees growing in a way akin to crawling as a result of the harsh wind and snow. Such scenery is truly like a garden made by Mother Nature.

The autumn colors of Lake Kawaguchiko

With an elevation of 830m, Lake Kawaguchiko is the second largest of the Fuji Five Lakes and Mt. Fuji can be seen beautifully across the water in all four seasons. This was a tourist destination since olden times and an abundance of leisure spots can be found in the surrounding areas. In recent years, it has become well-known as a fishing mecca.
