New Discovery in Japan - YAMANASHI Prefecture in CHUBU Region

June 15, 2015


Followed by my introduction on Mt. Fuji's view from Shizuoka prefecture, I like to continue to introduce about another angle-view on Mt. Fuji from Yamanashi prefecture.  



Personally I prefer to the Mt. Fuji's view from Yamanashi prefecture, which people call "URA FUJI" (the Back-Mt.Fuji in English), in contrast with another view from Shizuoka prefecture, which is called "OMOTE FUJI" (the Front-Mt.Fuji in English).   Specially for the views from the 5 famous lakes, i.e.,


1. Lake KAWAGUCHI      the east side of Mt. Fuji   



2. Lake YAMANAKA        the north side of Mt. Fuji


3. Lake SAI                      the north side of Mt. Fuji


4. Lake SHOJI                 the north side of Mt. Fuji


5. Lake MOTOSU            the west side of Mt. Fuji





For the transportation, I like to suggest that you take a highway coach from Shinjuku or Tokyo station to either Lake Kawaguchi or Lake Yamanaka. 


By bus from Shinjuku Station

Fujikyu and Keio Bus operate one to two direct buses per hour from Tokyo's Shinjuku Station (Keio Highway Bus Terminal) to Kawaguchiko Station in the Fuji Five Lakes region. The one way journey takes about two hours and costs 1750 yen. Most buses stop at Fujisan Station and Fuji Q Highlandbefore arriving at Kawaguchiko Station and some of them continue on to Lake Yamanakako


By bus from Tokyo Station

Fujikyu and JR Kanto Bus operate about half a dozen direct buses per day from Tokyo Station (Yaesu South Exit) to Kawaguchiko Station in the Fuji Five Lakes region. The one way trip takes about three hours and costs 1750 yen. The buses stop at Lake Yamanakako along the way
