#TripotoTakeMeToHimalayasWhen you think of Japan, Mount Fuji instantly comes to my mind. There is nothing like Mount Fuji in Japan. It is a two and a half hour train ride away from Tokyo city and it a great experience. The train journey is extremely tiring. When I went to Japan in June, my love for trekking took me to see Mount fuji.
Mount Fiji: Mount Fiji is the only dormant volcano in the world. You can take a train to Mount Fuji or get the bus to take you there. The bus leaves from the main city in Tokyo. In this case, the bus is better than the train because it is more easily accessible. Mount Fiji had a beautiful view but the weather was getting bad so we had to leave early. The best thing is to go to Mount Fiji in the morning because people start leaving around 5 so you won't be able to explore enough.
The Fuji Five Lake is sited around the lakes Kawaguchiko, Saiko, Yamanakako, Shojiko and Motosuko. It is one of the best sites to view Mount Fuji from a close distance and a good base for climbing the mountain. It is the place where hiking, camping, fishing and other outdoor activities can be enjoyed at its peak.There is also plenty of hot springs and museums found in the area, along with Fuji Q Highland, one of Japan's most popular amusement parks with record breaking roller coasters.
Last but not least, the most important thing for going to Mt. Fuji is the weather. When it is raining or cloudy, it is very hard to see Mt. Fuji. I suggest better to check the weather and then plan your trip. If the weather is good, no matter where you go, you will definitely enjoy the sacred mountain.Since you can view Mt Fuji from many points around Japan, it’s worth a shot to try and capture it at different times of the day. Some people make it a mission to view Mt Fuji from all the possible location because each area provides a unique look. During sunset, I love how the light tinges the mountain snow cap. It's soooooo AMAZING :)So here ends my long guide to Japan (it's in 5 Parts :P) but still, I think I missed lots of things. Japan is so beautiful that you cannot capture all its beauty in one time you need to visit multiple times to feel its beauty and culture. I am definitely going to visit again.If you combine good fortune with proper planning you will definitely increase your chances to see Japan in its full glory!I wish you all the luck.Japan will always be top of my travel list. I hope you enjoy Japan as much as I did.Keep exploring and enjoy!!
Among the lakes, Lake Kawaguchiko is the easiest to access and offers the most things to see. So I went to Lake Kawaguchiko to view mesmerizing mount Fuji. The four other lakes are less developed than Lake Kawaguchiko and are not equally easy to access by public transportation.
