Kawaguchiko Station Area (By Walk): Lake Kawaguchiko Station

Topic 01 Apr, 2017

We would like to introduce here a few places around Kawaguchiko Station that you can reach on foot. You will never tire of the lovely station building, the delicious Japanese sweets and the view of Mt. Fuji with its perfectly symmetrical slopes.
 

The new wooden building of Kawaguchiko Station, the last station on the Fujikyuko line, was renewed in 2016. Over Lake Kawaguchiko spreading before your eyes, you can contemplate the majestic shape of Mt. Fuji. Inside the station building, there are many stores you can visit during a trip to the Lake Kawaguchiko area, such as a pastry shop where you can eat original sweets, or a souvenir goods shop where you can find Yamanashi Prefecture’s local specialties. 


 
Furthermore, every year in November, the “Fujikyu Train Festival” is held to celebrate Railway Day. You will have the opportunity to take pictures of the train wagons, buy railways related goods, and experience how it feels to sit in the train conductor seat!
