It is not as large, and I read that mainly because there is only one vantage point for Mount Fuji on the northwestern tip of Lake Saiko, it is much less touristy than Lake Kawaguchiko. Beautiful views abound from around the Lake. I feel that...More

We visited with our private tour guide on a walking/hiking tour, she took us here and we were really blown away by the beauty of the scenery. We visited in the middle of a hot, sunny day in May and there was hardly anyone else...More

I like this lake. There are many people fishing here and you know why... because the water was so clear and big fishes could be seen near the shore. Nice pictures to be taken although Fuji is partly hidden. There seem to be a camp...More

We drove upon here and a very small lake with an excellent view of Mt Fuji, lots of local here fishing! There are 5 great lakes around Mt. Fuji and we liked this the most

Smaller lake but not less beautiful, it's quieter as less people come here compared to Kawaguchiko Lake. Nice stroll to see Mt. Fuji from here.

This was my second favourite spot to see Fuji. Just near the thatched village is the best viewpoint...and the lake is prettier than the main larger lake adjacent

We were to stay in Lake Kawaguchi so we drove past this lake. It was not spectacular but not bad. Could take a few pictures for those who have not been here. Might not need to come back again....
