Place to visit around Mt.Fuji

Chureito Pagoda

On a clear day, the often photographed Chureito Pagoda offers a famous view of the Mt. Fuji summit. The view, however, must be earned a bit and requires a fairly steep walk up about 400 stairs to see the Pagoda and Mt. Fuji.

Fifth Station

Located halfway up the volcanic cone , the 5th station of Mount Fuji (Subaru Line) commands an excellent view over the five lakes region below. This area is the launching point for many hikers who are considering the trek to Fujisan’s top as well as a pleasant spot for snapping some great photos.

Oshino Hakkai

Runoff from Mt. Fuji, which filters through the porous volcanic rocks, feeds the ponds of Oshino Hakkai. This process removes particulates from the water, making it incredibly clean and clear. At one of the ponds it’s even possible to have a drink straight from the source.

Fuji-Q Highland

The cone of Mount Fuji looms not far off from this massive amusement park located within Kawaguchiko. Feel the rush of adrenaline as you drop from any of the park’s four roller coasters. There are other less-adrenaline-intensive rides as well, such as a merry-go-round and tea-cup ride. A full day ticket includes unlimited rides on most of the Fuji-Q attractions. (exceptions being the haunted house, any special events, bowling, and coin-operated machines).
