Itchiku Kubota Art Museum

Reviewed By Cara L

We loved the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum. It was slightly difficult to find, given the location (which was slightly further than the bus stop). It was worth the trip to Lake Kawaguchiko. The art was so beautiful and the architecture was perfect! We were also lucky to see the most stunning view of Mt Fuji. We will happily come back and visit again.

Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine

Reviewed By XavierShoot - Singapore, Singapore

Definitely worth the hardship trip if purpose is to capture the majestic sight of Mount Fuji, In spring, Arakurayama Sengen Park has a beautiful View of red and green colors.
When walking around this park, you will have a sense of peaceful and relaxing.
Climb half to the hill, the five-story pagada is right in front. It's not huge but inspiring; not grand but holy. It completely shocks you with comprehensive and profound Japanese culture.

Mt. Fuji 5th Station

Reviewed By Chuck W - Jacksonville, Florida

I was amazed at the beauty of this volcano. If youre not fit please pace yourself and buy oxygen. The climb doesnt seem tough because its a well established trail but it is very tough even for a fitness buff. Wear long pants and bring rain gear. Tough shoes are a must. Expect a headache at the top and take your time coming down because it's easy to fall. Walk side to side at an angle and it should be easy. If you do anything in Japan do this and enjoy the Japanese culture. Japan is awesome!

Stunning lake reflecting Mount Fuji. Not much else to do in Kawaguchi-ko but worth a visit to see the volcano.

Narusawa Ice Cave

Reviewed By Malesso_Traveler - Japan

We happened to be in the area and decided to check the cave out. It wasn't bad, but was expecting a bit more. However, I have to say the attendant was extremely helpful and provided great advice as we went into the cave.
Additionally, we picked up some great saki in the gift shop!

Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine

Reviewed By Eric_Greeney - Finland

The temple is located in the middle of giant, ancient cedar trees on a place where pilgrims used to commence their ascent to the holy mountain. The Yoshida trail still begins here, and was indeed tempting in front of us, inviting towards the pilgrimage. But we had to resist since the climbing season was not yet open (and nowadays, climbers start from the much higher 5th station).
There are beautiful buildings, some real worship and services taking place as well, giant Torii gates and in addition to the huge cedar threes, some very beautiful Japanese maples. No particular emphasis on gardening, but still a serene place away from the buzz of the city below. The function as the pilgrimage station added value to the temple, absolutely worthwhile to any visitor of Fuji. No entrance fee.

Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba

Reviewed By cvu79 - Atlanta, Georgia

We went here with small kids and they weren’t that much interested. Not much to do and the signage wasn’t that great. Felt more like a bunch of gift shops in reconstructed old houses. Went to the soba shop that people mentioned in these reviews and though it was pretty good and the service friendly it was kinda pricy.

Fuji-Q Highland

Reviewed By dittmer5034 - Newton, Iowa

My wife and I are in are late 30's and a 16 year old son. We took the train which was cheap and efficient as always. Not very crowded on a weekday. Lots of variety of rides and a couple fun roller coasters. No one spoke English and we spoke no Japanese and we had no issues finding our way around or getting on the rides. Was a fun trip overall.

Michi-no-Eki Narusawa

Reviewed By robandmirry - Ravenshoe, Australia

We stayed at this Michi-no-Eki for two nights after visiting Mount Fuji. We had an RV, the only thing that would make this place awesome is having a paid shower. Other than that, the views are amazing the area is so clean, the toilets were very very clean - just remember if you stay - stay at the end away from the toilets as you can get a whiff of toilet every now and then. Very very quiet except when the college starts playing their soccer at 5.00am - which they do. Checked out the ice cream vending machine and they also have a hot coffee machine and you can manage to get a decent hot coffee for about 230 yen. Not very big, but not sweet. Make sure you take the time to visit the farmers market and the stalls that pop up out the front of the buildings. You can actually find some amazing stuff and the vegies are very very fresh. Just down the road is an amazing supermarket and you can purchase premade meals and sushi and bento boxes from there. They also have a daiso and Clothing store.

Oishi Park

Reviewed By YTCHENG - Hong Kong, China

We have visited Oishi Park during our stay in Kawaguchiko this Oct. The park was near to the Gem Museum and there were many tall trees by the lakeside and had changed color to yellow. The place was nice and good for photo-taking. By the way, this was one of the bus stop along the circular bus route in town.
