The shore of the lake is a slope, and it will go to the lake surface vigorously.
It is not like Disney's Splash Mountain, but it comes in quite a bit.

If you are lucky, you can overlook the Southern Alps.
On the day, the weather was good and we could see up to Kita-dake in the Southern Alps.
Kitadake is the highest peak at 3,193m above Mount Fuji.

The guide said, "It's really rare."

It was a fun time to take pictures of Mt. Fuji from Lake Yamanaka.

Koshu Houtou Kosaku

There are digging tatami seats and tatami mat seats.
Tatami seats seem tired for Americans.

After eating the famous houtou, We had time to go to Fujikyu Highland for the first time in 30 years.
Fuji-Q Highland is now free of admission, and it has triggered me to go.
There were many foreign tours here as well.
There were many Southeast Asians.
Attractions are also evolving!














The elderly couple takes a break. The young couple is thinking about which to ride.
Stay for about an hour and go home.

Mt.Fuji after a long absence.
When I was young, I often went to Lake Kawaguchi and Lake Yamanaka.
When I was a child (elementary school student), I often went skating to Lake Yamanaka in winter.
Lake Yamanaka was frozen and I could skate. (About 50 years ago)
And I got a small hole cut and fished smelt.
I still remember eating it on the spot.
I realized the wonderfulness of Mt. Fuji again on this trip.
It was a short trip, but my daughter's husband seemed to have enjoyed it.
