Kawaguchi Lake Tours

Kawaguchi Lake has the second largest surface area of the Fuji Five Lakes. It also has the longest shoreline, as well as the lowest elevation. The lake is situated at an altitude of around 800 meters, which means it has relatively cool summers followed by freezing cold winters.

The lake serves at the main hub for those looking to climb Mount Fuji during the climbing season (July and August), and is the most popular of the Fuji Five Lakes in terms of tourism. Hotels, camp sites, museums, hot spring baths, windsurfing, fishing, and boat trips all readily available in and around the lake.

A classic­-style bus runs along the lakeside, transporting visitors to all of the shoreline’s activities and attractions. The route can also be walked or cycled for those looking for a more active way to explore.

Practical Info

Kawaguchi Lake is the most easily accessible of the Fuji Five Lakes, being just a 10­-minute walk from Kawaguchiko Station, with a number of buses also serving the area.
