What amazing views...so picturesque. Perfect reflection of Fuji on the lake. So quiet and peaceful. Perfect break to take if your away on business and can get away for a day or 2.

I visited the lake twice, once on a bike and second time while running the Fujisan marathon. It features beautiful views of Mt. Fuji from north shore and some nice camping places. It was a bit windy and definitely too cold in November.

fuji had a different feeling from saiko lake, the surroundings where native compared to the spots from the city or other lakes. i saw canoes for rental there but i don't know when is the rental season. i would have done that though if weather was warmer.
