Konnichiwa Japan -
Lake kawaguchi & Mt Fuji
25 March 2012 (Sun): Tokyo Shinjuku - Lake Kawaguchi (Mt Fuji)
Beautiful weather on a Sunday morning in Shinjuku!
Went back to the Shinjuku bus station to catch our bus to Lake Kawaguchi. The journey took about 2 hours.
Finally arrived at Kawaguchiko station...lucky us we bumped into our cute friend...Hello Kitty! :p
Our accommodation in Mt Fuji...K's House Mt Fuji. We got ourselves a 3-person suite with attached bathroom. This hostel is very cosy, clean and nice! Love it!!
Lake Kawaguchi was within walking distance from our hostel...we were very lucky coz the weather was lovely. The scenery around the lake is absolutely stunning! Most people go to Hakone to see Mt Fuji but I would recommend Lake Kawaguchi.
Took the Kachi-kachi Ropeway to Mt Tenjo for an aerial view of the lake.
It's not easy to get a clear view of the entire Mt Fuji. We waited for quite some time for all the clouds to clear just to get a perfect picture of this mountain!
You have no idea how many pictures we took of the mountain! As I was editing all these pictures, I realized they all look the same...why the heck did I take so many pics then??
Best thing about coming up Mt Tenjo is that we got to see both Mt Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi...both equally stunning. =)
Both of us rented bikes from the hostel and went wandering around the lake to catch the sunset.
The sky is so clear but too bad the wind was kinda strong so couldn't really see a clear reflection of the mountain on the lake.
We were busy taking pics until it got dark...lol!
Prepared dinner ourselves at the hostel kitchen.
