Kawaguchiko or Lake Kawaguchi is one of the most beautiful lakes around Mount Fuji.
However due to a simple stupid mistake, we lost almost four hours in Kawaguchiko. We were supposed to ride the Ltd. Express from tokyo to otsuki, and then ride the local train from otsuki to kawaguchiko. But, we missed our stop. we hestitated for a moment and when we get our bagages, the train door (what is the name for a train door ? 🙄 ) has closed.
so we missed one stop and the next stop is around 40 minutes away. and then we go down at the next stop and hop in the wrong train again!
the train we rode were not stopping at otsuki, it stopped at the stop after otsuki instead! so we lost another one hour. luckily at the station, there is a train due straight to kawaguchiko. it takes around two hours to kawaguchiko. and we finally arrived at around 4 pm.
the cable car is as amusing as any, with the beautiful sight of the lake. however, the mount fuji was covered with clouds so me cannot actually saw it clearly.
but it was sort of a blessing in disguise since we bump into a local food restaurant that served kawaguchiko signature dish, Hoto Fudo, located near the station.
our hotel, Fuji View Hotel, was huge and beautiful.
the hotel offers onsen and ofcourse we had to try it! onsen is really something. we actually went to the onsen naked. there are specific rules and everyone actually got inside the pool and everything else in the onsen area naked!
the onsen is very good and the powder room is amazing. i can’t describe it! i’ll just show you below! (the powder room ofcourse, we are not allowed to take pictures inside the onsen)
1. have you tried onsen before? tell me your experience!
2. have you ever visit mount fuji area? where is the best place to see mount fuji?
