A scenic park where you can enjoy the view of flowers, the Lake Kawaguchi-ko and the majestic Mt. Fuji at the same time. The park, situated by the northern side of the lake in the town of Fujikawaguchiko, is one of the venues of the annual Kawaguchiko Herb Festival. During the festival time it is crowded with people who admire Mt. Fuji over the field of lavender in full bloom. There are other flowers planted in the park and the red leaves of Kochia in autumn are famous too. You can also try making blueberry jam at the Kawaguchiko Natural Living Center on site.

Good place to enjoy autumn. Unfortunately, it was cloudy when I came so we could not see Fuji-san. I recommend you to check forecast and only come when the sky is clear.

The perfect place to admire Mount Fuji!
But for perfect lighting, better get here in the morning where the sun is at your back shining towards the view, instead of in the afternoon when it’s the other way round.

Unfortunately, Mt. Fuji wasn't out the day we went to visit. But it was still a stunning sight, with the fields of lavender and the lake outstretched in front of us. Would love to return one day and actually see Fuji!
Note: Visited prior to COVID, so things may be different.

Beautiful place to visit especially with the clear sky. Mt. Fuji in front, which you will have the reflection of the mountain on the surface of the lake when calm. So beautiful. Full of flowers through the seasons. Fine walk along side of the lake.
