Lake Yamanaka Reviews
Lots to do -- interesting places to eat or walk. Great views of Mt. Fuji when its not covered by clouds. Good hot springs. Rental boats and bicycles. Swimming in the summer (in cold water!). more »
We enjoyed the Quiet, peaceful hike around the 16km lake. Gorgeous snowscape, mountainscape and lakescape!!!! Got to view Mount Fuji from different angles and also stay to watch the “diamond Fuji.... more »
Loads of free parking all around this lake, and toilets nearby each of these. The best spot for free parking and a great view of Mt Fuji is on the Nagaike side, stunning to watch the sunset and rise in the morning over the lake. Plenty of temples and shrines nearby, walks and water activities, places to eat and 7 elevens if you need convenience items! Our favourite spot so far :)
山中 lake is only one that I can see an ISOLATED Mount Fuji in my five-lake travel. The scene is very special because there is no other mountain and forest accompanying with the Mount Fuji. However, the shape of the Mount Fuji is not quite smooth from this angle of 山中 lake comparing with the 河口 lake and 本栖 lake. If you want to go to the 箱根, make this spot in your itinerary when drive past it.
