Fuji Goko

Fuji-Goko is a collective term for the five lakes along the northern foot of Mt. Fuji, which towers at the border of southern Yamanashi and Shizuoka. The lakes are Yamanaka-ko, Kawaguchi-ko, Sai-ko, Shoji-ko, and Motosu-ko. The largest is Lake Yamanaka-ko, the smallest is the Lake Shoji-ko, the one with the highest surface altitude is Lake Yamanaka-ko, and the deepest one is Lake Motosu- ko.

Lake Yamanaka-ko is a popular summer resort offering camping spots around the lake.

Lake Kawaguchi-ko is the easiest to get to from Tokyo and is the core of sightseeing in the Fuji-Goko area. A classic-style bus runs along the lakeside carrying visitors to all the different museums and amusement facilities. Lake Kawaguchi-ko is also known as the starting point for climbing Mt. Fuji, as well as a mecca for sports fishing.

Lake Sai-ko is also called the "Lake of Otome (maidens)." In the surroundings, there is Aoki-ga-hara-jukai or the sea of forest that spreads all over the northwestern foot of Mt. Fuji, Sai-ko Bats' Nest Cave that is warm even in winter and Fugaku- fuketsu, or the wind caves of Fuji, where icicles bristle even in summer.

Lake Shoji-ko has a great view from the Eboshi-dake Panorama Platform at the southwest. The reflected image of Mt. Fuji on the lake surface is known as the "Upside-down Fuji."

Lake Motosu-ko is the deepest among the five lakes, with a depth of 138 meters, and prides itself on the outstanding clarity of its water. You can enjoy the same sight of Mt. Fuji from the north shore as it is drawn on the 5,000 yen bills.
