We spent there a couple of hours. You can rent a bike for 4, walk around, and there is a playground for kids 4-10. You can also have a coffee while your kids play, or take a small visit to the lava museum (very small).

You can see the grand scenery of Mt.Fuji over the lake Yamanakako in this park. In the middle of November and February the scenery is even called "Double Diamond Fuji", since you can see how the sun sets into an inverted image of Mt.Fuji reflecting a double image in the water. The park is open anytime. Also, there is a bike path along Yamanaka Lake, and it is comfortable to go cycling as there are various kinds of restaurants and museums around. You can find many bike rental shops along the lakeside.

What an incredible viewing point that overlooks Mt. Fuji on Yamanakako Lake! It is located in the middle of prefectural road reaching from Yamanakako Mikuni. Of course, the views highly depend on weather, however we went there at dusk and had a fantastic viewing experience! Wonderful spot, loved it to bits.

I first attended Sweet Love Shower here in 2008 and loved it. Such a great location for live music, and such a novel location for a festival too (so different from festivals in the UK). Worth a visit for some music and scenery.

One disappointment about Japanese museums is that they rarely provide detailed descriptions in English of what is on display. While the artifact explanations at the Yukio Mishima Library Museum were far from detailed, they provided enough English verbiage to keep me engaged for the best part of 90 minutes, and adequacy explained what was being presented. I was the only person visiting the one-room library museum (on a Saturday morning), and I thoroughly enjoyed the leisurely review of the contents, in spite of not being a Mishima connoisseur. If you have read or studied Mishima, I think you will enjoy this place. A small side room presents a quality depiction in video of some aspects of Mishima’s life and works (however, this is in Japanese only). I paid 500 yen to enter. At the time (July 2012), that also included entry into the adjacent Sohou Tokutomi museum (which regrettably had no explanations in English). If you are in the Yamanaka-ko area, are somewhat familiar with Mishima and his works, and have a few hours to spare, I would recommend a visit.

Yamanaka Suwa Shrine and Yamanaka Sengen Shrine are located right next to Lake Yamanaka and Mt. Fuji. Yamanaka Suwa shrine is known as the shrine for a safe baby Delivery and having a baby. Many people visit this shrine with their babies. We visited straight after sunrise, it was incredibly tranquil and peaceful. I guess it would be best to see in autumn with the colourful leaves around and beautiful scenery

The Yamanakako Fireworks Festival Hokosai is the very first of the fireworks shows that are held around the Five Fuji Lakes each year. Fireworks are set off from Yamanaka, Asahioka, and two more sites, so they can be enjoyed from any point along the lakeshore. Viewing the fireworks elegantly from a sightseeing boat on the lake is also popular. This fireworks festival traces its roots back to the Taisho period, when students would set off fireworks at the lake, and the firework event was later given the name "hokosai" by the distinguished writer Tokutomi Soho. Today, one purpose of the festival is to propitiate the souls of those who died in the line of duty and to offer up thanks to the lake.
