A lap of Kawaguchiko is about 20km, then it takes approx 4 hours with some stopping.
There is a bridge on Kawaguchiko which is the best position of taking beautiful pictures of Mt.Fuji and Kawaguchiko.
Spring– You can enjoy Sakura which is cherry blossom in Japanese by the side of Kawaguchiko. During the spring we get together and have food and drinks while enjoying the freshly bloomed cherry blossoms, and it’s called ”Ohanami” in Japanese. Also, you can take beautiful pictures of Mt. Fuji and lavender from green 6 and 7 on the map above.
Summer–It’s very hot in summer, so it’s good idea to have local soft serve ice cream, which taste is such as lavender, kyoho grape, and white peach.
Autumn– We have momiji matsuri, which is maple festival. There is a momiji corridor there, and the trees are illuminated during the nights. Small shops are opened at momiji matsuri, and sometimes you can watch Japanese monkey show there which is called ”Sarumawashi”.
Winter– You can see most famous Mt. Fuji which is covered with snow. The recommended food in winter is Hoto, which is a traditional hot pot dish
