Our Stay near Fujisan

The five lakes around Mount Fuji are mainly famous for the views of the mystic mountain that can be seen from their shores on a clear day. Besides the incredible views of Fujisan they also offer other activities to tourists and locals – fishing, boating and swimming are just some of the options. Our Japanese inn, Fujitomita was closest to Lake Yamanakako (Swan Lake) and during our stay there we had already walked a part of it on the Tokai Nature Trail that runs past lake.

Cycling through Oshino Village

For our last day in the area we chose to cycle around the entire lake. After unloading our folding bikes from the hire car and checking them over we set out late morning on a bright, sunny day.  We cycled along the quiet roads of Oshino Village, past lush green rice fields, local farmers selling their fresh fruit and vegetables at the roadside stands and patches of colourful flowers. We made a brief stop at a pretty local temple before riding on.
