Fuji Five Lakes
Lake Kawaguchiko 河口湖
Kawaguchiko is a great base to explore the surrounding five lakes areas. The best approach is to rent a bike. We arrived late in the day to Kawaguchiko so we only had time to catch the sunset which was very nice too.
Shuhoukaku Kogetsu 秀峰閣湖月
The hotel was in a perfect location for viewing Mt. Fuji. It is right next to Lake Kawaguchiko and on clear days you can see Mount Fuji from your room.
You can see Mount Fuji directly from the room.
Kawaguchiko Winter Fireworks
The highlight of our stay was the fireworks display over the mountain.
Traditional Kaiseki meal
Good morning Mount Fuji!
The view from the room was breathtaking. Even when Mt. Fuji was not visible, the lake and the hills were really beautiful.
I love Japanese style breakfast buffet! I often end up stuff myself with too much food…self control is needed!
Too bad Mount Fuji was covered by cloud right before we left the hotel.
