河口湖就在酒店隔離，是觀看富士山的好地方。剛好遇上一二月週末的煙火大會，非常熱鬧和興奮！早上六點出去看日出很方便 more »Kawaguchiko is a great place to see Mt. Fuji, just across the hotel. Just met the December weekend of the Smoke and fire metropolis, very hot and excited! It's easy to go out at six in the morning to see the sunrise
Beautiful place, quiet, with best view of mount fugi. The incline is a great place to start and lots of shops at the bottom to get some keepsakes to take home. Be mindful of train times if you don’t plan to stay the night in a nice hot spring !
Beautiful lake with amazing view of Mt Fuji in the backdrop. You can rent a bike or a fishing rod. Fishing rod can be rented for whole day and they also need fishing license, but there are actually fishes! Lots of people do recreational fishing and release back to the lake. Be warned of sunburn, make sure to cover yourselves up. Sun was strong even during spring time.
