Panorama-dai Lookout

Main content starts here.

As its name implies, this lookout point offers sweeping, panoramic views of Mount Fuji and Lake Yamanakako from an elevation of 1,090 meters. The landscape visible from Panorama-dai is part of a list of Fuji hakkei, or “Eight Views of Fuji.”

“Eight Views” is a term commonly used in China, Japan, and Korea, referring to the most outstanding or significant scenes in a certain area. There is a longstanding artistic tradition to produce various series of eight or more views, with some artists creating multiple versions and variants of the same series. A famous example is woodblock print artist Katsushika Hokusai’s Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji, followed by his subsequent book One Hundred Views of Mt. Fuji.

The views from Panorama-dai at sunrise and sunset are remarkable year-round. Another notable vista can be admired in autumn, when the pampas grass fields of Mt. Mikuni––on which this viewpoint on the prefectural road is located––transform into shimmering seas of gold and silver. On a clear day, visitors may also be able to see the Southern Alps, Mt. Ohirayama, and Mt. Ishiwariyama.
