4Shoji Lake

Mt. Fuji And Sunrise

We can see the beautiful collaboration of Mt. Fuji and the sun rises above Shoji Lake. There're sometimes so many clouds that you can't see them clearly, so it'll be better to visit here many times.◎Chu'ou Speed Way: 18km from Kawaguchiko IC, 30km from Ichinomiyamisaka IC, or 19km from Kofu Minami IC. Higashi Fujigoko Speed Way: 18.5km from Fujiyochida IC.

Winter Oshino Hakkai With Beautiful Mt.Fuji And Dried Corns

Oshino Hakkai with some clear spring ponds is covered with snow in winter and it's like an ink painting. In such scenery, the dried corns have warm beautiful colors. They will make Oyaki (snack like a pancake) with these corns after grained.◎Bus is available from Fujisan Station of Fuji Kyuko Railway. There're parking lot for cars.

Grand Scenery Of Mt. Fuji And Three-Leaved Azalea

Mitsutouge Mountain is known as a commanding spot of grand scenery with Mt. Fuji. At the end of May, three-leaved azalea blooms beautifully.

Parking area is available, and also bus from Kawaguchiko Station. For people who want to enjoy mountain climbing, it's nice to start from Mitsutouge Station. By the way, Mt. Fuji in this pic is slightly covered with snow, because it snowed a lot in this year. So there's less snow as usual. The address is Mitsutouge Cottage, and it commands Mt. Fuji and Azalea together.

8Hananomiyako Park
