Visitors can stop by several museums around the lake's perimeter, including one dedicated to medieval music. Boat excursions, windsurfing, and other water sports are available on the lake itself, and nearby hot springs draw others to the water's edge.

Went to check out this place since I missed booking a tour of Mount Fuji. I hopped on a train from Tokyo and did a self guided tour. Lake’s pretty with great view of Mt. Fuji. more »
Amazing place with beautiful scenery, we got a ticket at the station for the bus there are 3 different routes, we got the red one. The best stop for sure was the cable car you can go up and enjoy the view. There is also a boat at the same stop. Beyond there are many stops were you can enjoy the beautiful view!
Must see scenic location. We decided to manually bike around to check it out. It was about 3 hours including many stops. If doing electric bike you can do it in 2 hours. Many outlook points and small little shops. If biking be careful of passing cars.
