Fun Around Mount Fuji with WAttention

Fun Around Mt. Fuji (1):

A Short Trip To The Fuji Five Lakes Area

Which is why I'm hanging in a hammock, rather than strapping on my climbing gear.
Ready to have some fun in the Fuji Five Lakes Area? Follow us in this 5-part series as we bring you onsens, high-flying rollercoasters, panoramic views, and yes, even a Hammock Café, where I'm hanging now. Everything is five times the fun with the majestic view of Mt. Fuji in the background, so let's get started!

Fun Around Mt. Fuji (2):

Mt. Fuji By Sea!

What could be more beautiful than a clear sight of Japan's most famous mountain? How about seeing its perfect symmetry reflected upon the waters of nearby Lake Yamanakako – the largest of the Fuji Five Lakes. We set out for the perfect view aboard two cruisers that are quite peculiar sights on their own: the Yamanakako no KABA, and the Excursion Ship [Swan Lake].

Fun Around Mt. Fuji (3):

Mt. Fuji By Sky!

Looking to enjoy Mt. Fuji from another angle? How about while speeding down the Takabisha ride above, with its world-record holding 121-degree drop, or while spinning upside down on one of its 7 inversions?
From sea to sky, let's get high at Fuji-Q Highland! With some of the world's tallest, fastest and steepest rollercoaster rides, just looking at some of these is enough to make one queasy.

Fun Around Mt. Fuji (4):

Hot Pink Flower Festivals To Ice Cold Caves

From the vibrant hot pink Shiba-Sakura by Lake Motosuko, to the cool underground lava and ice caves by Lake Saiko, we explored the hidden and natural majesty of Mt. Fuji that extends beyond the mountain itself.

Fun Around Mt. Fuji (5):

A Final View of Mt. Fuji

For one final panoramic view of Mt. Fuji from another angle, we saved our highest ascent for last. And thankfully, hiking isn't the only way to get 1,075 meters above Lake Kawaguchiko.
By hopping on the newly renovated Kachikachi-Yama Ropeway, we scaled to the top of Mt. Tenjo in just 3 minutes! This mountain is the setting for the famous Japanese folk tale "Kachi Kachi-Yama”, and its cute rabbit and raccoon characters awaited us at the summit.
