Fuji Five Lakes Enjoyment Course

The course runs by all of the Fuji Five Lakes: Lake Motosuko, Lake Shojiko, Lake Saiko, Lake Kawaguchiko, and Lake Yamanakako. There are many romantic sights along the way in addition to the lakes, including a primeval forest, historical sites, and springs that have been listed among Japan’s Top 100 Famous Water Locations and the New 100 Views of Mt. Fuji. Cyclists who have completed this approximately 110-km course under the benevolent watch of Mt. Fuji can expected to have a great sense of accomplishment. This is a long-distance course, so dividing it into several separate rides is also recommended.

Key point

You will pass by Oshino Hakkai Springs, which has been listed among Japan’s Top 100 Famous Water Locations and designated a natural monument of Japan. This is also included among the heritage assets of the Mt. Fuji World Cultural Heritage Site.

Strategy

This course has a total length of about 110 km, but it has a maximum elevation difference of about 150 m and few ups and downs, so is easy to cycle. There is a lot of traffic on Route 138 (Old Kamakura Road), so be careful of vehicles while riding here.

Course guide

Depart from Kenritsu Fuji-Hokuroku Parking Lot.

Take Route 138 (Old Kamakura Road) toward Lake Yamanakako. You will see Fuji-Q Highland and Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen-jinja Shrine along the way. Continue toward Roadside Station Fujiyoshida.

Go past the Mt. Fuji observation points, including Bungaku-no-Mori Park, Yuyake-no-Nagisa Park, Yamanakako Community Plaza Kirara, and Nagaike Water Park, and go around Lake Yamanakako.

Go past Lake Yamanakako Flower City Park and head toward Oshino Hakkai Springs. (Photo shows appearance in spring.)

Return to Route 138 (Old Kamakura Road). The course passes near to the starting point and proceeds toward Lake Kawaguchiko. Cross Kawaguchiko-ohashi Bridge and proceed toward Kawaguchi Sengen-jinja Shrine.

The course goes through Kawaguchiko Oishi Park and through the Momiji Tunnel, around Lake Kawaguchiko, and then toward Lake Saiko. (Photo shows appearance in autumn.)

Next, the course goes around Lake Shojiko and then Lake Motosuko. The view of Mt. Fuji on the 1,000-yen bill is from Lake Motosuko. Mt. Fuji looks especially majestic from here.

After running on the shores of Lake Shojiko, Lake Saiko, and Lake Kawaguchiko, the course finishes at Kenritsu Fuji-Hokuroku Parking Lot. Lake Saiko Bat Cave, Roadside Station Katsuyama, and Fuji Omuro Sengen-jinja Shrine are along the way.
