Go to this spotGoogle Transit

Lake Motosu-ko, located on the border of the towns of Fujikawaguchiko and Minobu in Yamanashi Prefecture, is the westernmost of the Fuji-Goko (Fuji Five Lakes). It is 13 kilometers in circumference, 4.7 square kilometers in area and 138 meters in the maximum water depth, which is the deepest among the five lakes. The north shore of the lake is a nice spot for viewing Mt. Fuji - the photo of Mt. Fuji with its reflection in the lake that is printed on 1000 yen bills was taken from here. Though windsurfing and canoeing have become popular around the northwest area of the lake, natures around this lake, compared to other four lakes of Fuji-Goko, are not yet developed for tourist and a great deal of this area, especially on its west coast, is left untouched.

Because the water is deep, the blue of the lake surface is deep and beautiful.
The view from the observatory in front of Koan Campsite is superb.
There is a small parking lot, but it is full at noon on Saturday, November.
Those who stopped on the shoulder on the way became troublesome for the policeman. If you follow the traffic rules, you should go early so as not to bother the locals.

Unfortunately, all the parking lots were full.
It's a wonderful place, so I drove the Motosu lakeside road,
As you drive to the west, the worst view is to park your car in a way that blocks more than half of one side of a two-lane road.
No way camping in this state ⛺️?
Moreover, change clothes on the street.
Isn't the Wuhan virus scary? No masks 😷, and it's super 3 dense.
Such a scene is 2-3 kilometers to the left and right
it continues.
It's like a homeless group.
It's too dangerous, as a big camper will open the door on the opposite lane side and completely block the lane.
It shouldn't be your own road.
Before the big accident happens
Take early action.
