To go the park, we took local train from Kawaguchiko station to Shimoyoshida station which cost 300 JPY. Then walk for 10 minutes. The park was quiet and the autumn leaves make it more instagrammable. There's free wifi on the location. Too bad we couldn't...More

The great thing about this experience is that it makes you wonder if there's any point in actually climbing Mount Fuji. You can get the shrine experience to pay your respects, the cherry blossoms, the pagoda. What else do you need? If you have nice...More

If you notice the scene here are just like in the advertisement they post for Mount Fuji. Stunning view every time we turned our head to view the Mount. Fuji. Need to hike a while to reach the shrine and the view point.

The park is build with a lot of paths, beautiful flowers. In spring keep in mind that in the mountains it is cooler, and the blooming starts later.

The hike up to the pagoda takes about ten minutes, but it’s pretty steep, so pace yourself. You can continue the hike after the pagoda, but the panoramic view of Mount Fuji behind it is what draws people to the park. You are guaranteed a...More

Mt Fuji (11 Replies)
I have about 4 hours traveling from Tokyo next week n want to witness the magnificent Mt Fuji as well as take in the beauty of the surroundings, should I head straight to Arakurayama Sengen park or Lake Kawaguchi? Thank you

I say Lake Kawaguchi. It seems if you only have 4 hours then you'll hardly have time to get off the bus. However, if the weather is good you'll have great views of Mt. Fuji from quite far off.

Fuji Shibazakua Festival day trip (0 Replies)
I am interested in visiting Fuji Shibazakua Festival and saw that there's a direct bus that head from Shinjuku to the venue. Based on the reviews on tripadvisor, it is said that the place is not that big and only last for about 2 hours. If I want to visit Arakurayama Sengen Park after that, is there a bus that heads from the festival venue to the park? Also, is there a bus from the park back to Shinjuku. Is it better of us to visit the Park first before heading to the festival side or...More
