"One Of Lake Around Mt. Fuji" Kawaguchi-ko by yeikloen
Kawaguchi-ko Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 56 photos
Lake Kawaguchi is one of the five lakes (Fujigo-ko) surrounding Mt. Fuji. These lakes were formed as a result of barrage formation by volcanic debris and solidified magma spewed out of Mt. Fuji and the off-spring volcanic outlets nearby. The lake is the oldest of the five and it is at least 50-60 thousand years old. There are scores of underwater springs at the lake bottom. There is no discernible surface flow into or out of the lake. Major flows of water appear to take place underground. In 1912 a sluiceway was constructed to discharge a maximum flow of 7.79 m3 sec-1 (named Usobuki River). Artificial regulation of flow has been made possible by flow augmentation from Lake Sai, one of the remaining four lakes, for supplementing water for power generation. The number of visitors to the five-lake area exceeds ten million annually. Lake Kawaguchi, directly linked to Tokyo Metropolitan urban districts through a major artery highway (2 hours by bus on Chou Highway) and closest to the terminal of the Fuji Subaru scenic route, is a centre of tourist attraction in this area.
- Pros:The scenery was just awesome
- Cons:The jam could be pretty bad during holiday and weekends
- In a nutshell:Mountain Over The Lake
Not too sure about the time or departure but it take about an hour plus to get there if there are no jam. It took me... more travel advice
