Fuji Five Lakes

The Fuji Five Lakes were formed by the previous eruptions of Mount Fuji. The names of the lakes are Lake Kawaguchi, Lake Motosu, Lake Sai, Lake Shoji, and Lake Yamanaka. Lake Kawaguchi is the most famous of the bunch as it is the largest and has more activities available than the rest. Along the shores of Kawaguchi are many large hotels and ryokans for visitors to stay. Near the northern shore of the lake is the Kubota Itchiku Art Museum where the Symphony of Light kimono artwork can be seen.

Lake Sai is less developed and has a more tranquil atmosphere. There you can find the Bat Cave, Ice Cave, and Wind Cave. Lake Motosu is one of the top ten deepest lakes in Japan and is feature on the back on the 1000 yen bill. Lake Shoji is the smallest of the lakes and is a popular location for water sports enthusiasts. Lake Yamanaka is the second most developed of the lakes and is a popular spot for student summer camps.
