Cherry blossoms and Mount Fuji are a match made in flower heaven, so take this chance to visit Lake Kawaguchiko in spring.
Along with lakeside walks accompanied by dozens of cherry trees, there will be a craft market and illuminations at the main site from sunset till 9 p.m.
How to get there
There are cherry blossom trees all around Lake Kawaguchiko and especially on the north shore — where you’ll also see an impressive view of Mount Fuji — but the main event space will take place between Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum and the Maple Corridor. Get off at the stop for the Konohana Art Museum and follow the sounds of revelry.
There will also be the Katsuyama Cherry Blossom Festival on the other side of the lake from April 5 to 16 near the Kawaguchiko Muse Museum.
