What to Expect
In this tour, you can visit some popular destination near Mt. Fuji.
-Kachi-Kachi Yama Ropeway
On the lower eastern edge of Lake Kawaguchi, the ropeway runs to the Fuji Viewing Platform. The ropeway reaches the summit in three minutes and from this observation area(1075m), there is a panoramic view of Mt.Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi.
-Itchiku Kubota Museum
This museum exhibits the art of kimono by Itchiku Kubota. In an attractive Gaudi-influenced building, a small number of lavishly dyed kimonos from his life's work of continuous landscapes are displayed. This Michelin-rated venue also holds a beautiful garden that you can explore.
-Kitaguchi Hongu Sengen Shrine
The start point of the Yoshida Climbing Route to the summit of Mt. Fuji is located in the precinct of this shrine. This shrine is related to the Shinto animistic worship of Mt.Fuji. Feel the serene atmosphere, history and religious attributes.
-Ide Sake Brewery
Using the spring waters from Mt.Fuji, Ide sake brewery has been producing excllent sake for over 150 years. It's tours provide a fascinating insight into the production process, tasting several kinds of sake and a souvenir glass.
If the wather is not very good,instead of Ropeway, I recommend visiting Wind Cave which is a lava cave created by an eruption of Mt.Fuji.
