    Kawaguchiko

    January 24, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ -4 °C

    This is where Lake Kawaguchi lies. It is the most accessible of the Fuji Five Lakes. The reason I came here was to get to Kachi Kachi Ropeway. This ropeway ascends up Mount Tenjo to give you majestic views of, the one and only, Mt. Fuji. It’s observation deck is at about 1000 meters above sea level. I went on a clear day and this was my second trip to Japan, and so I FINALLY got to see this volcanic legend.

    On another note, I was freezing my butt off here. It hit about -4 degrees that evening.

    To get here, take the train (or the bus) from Tokyo to Kawaguchi station. And from there, just walk in the town for a bit til you find Kachi Kachi Ropeway. Its not difficult to find. Just ask anyone or follow the other tourists.
