More about Fujinomiya Discover Fujinomiya

Fujinomiya (富士宮) is a city in Shizuoka Prefecture on the southwestern slopes of Mount Fuji. The city grew up around Fujinomiya Sengen Shrine, the most prominent and important shrine in the region, which is also the traditional starting point of the approach up the mountain. Many visitors still start the climb from Fujinomiya via the Fujinomiya 5th Station, as it is the shortest and one of the most popular routes up the mountain. Fujinomiya is also home to the Shiraito Falls, one of Japan's most beautiful waterfalls. The falls can be found in the outskirts of the city along the way to the Fuji Five Lakes region on the northern side of the mountain.

More about Izu Peninsula Discover Izu Peninsula

The Izu Peninsula (伊豆半島, Izu Hantō) is a resort area popular for its hot springs, beautiful coastlines, beaches, mild climate and scenic mountainous interior. Located about 100 kilometers southwest of Tokyo, its proximity to the city makes the peninsula a popular weekend getaway and the area is well connected to Tokyo by train. In addition, Mount Fuji lies only about 50 kilometers to the north and can be viewed from the peninsula’s western coast.

More about Lake Shirakaba Discover Lake Shirakaba

The lake is located approximately 1500 meters above sea level, within the Yatsugatake-Chushin Kogen Quasi-National Park, in Chino city, Nagano prefecture. It used to be an artificial reservoir for agricultural use. Today, you can find hotels, golf courses, and a ski resort around the lake. The area is well known as being one of the main resort spots in Nagano. You can enjoy the resort spots around Lake Shirakaba during all four seasons. From spring through summer flowers bloom everywhere. Even in summer the climate is mild and cool so you can enjoy strolling by the lake. Fishing, canoeing, and boating on the lake is available. Many people also stay in the resort to enjoy golfing and playing tennis at a nearby golf course and tennis courts. A large fireworks show is held in August. In autumn, you can enjoy red and yellow leaves of the trees. During winter, you can enjoy winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding at the ski resort. The Tateshina Teddy Bear Museum is located by Lake Shirakaba. The area has many facilities you can visit throughout the year. There are also major sightseeing spots including Yatsugatake, Tateshina, Kirigamine, and Lake Megami around Lake Shirakaba.

More about Matsumoto Discover Matsumoto

Matsumoto (松本) is the second largest city in Nagano Prefecture. It is most famous for Matsumotojo, one of Japan’s most beautiful original castles. The city is also a good base for trips into the Japanese Alps, e.g. to Kamikochi, Norikura or the Tateyama-Kurobe Alpine Route. Matsumoto Castle, is the city’s must-see attraction and is among Japan’s oldest fortresses. Together with Himeji Castle, Hikone Castle and Inuyama Castle, the building is designated as a National Treasure. Matsumoto’s black, wooden keep (donjon) is the oldest such structure in Japan, dating from 1595. The black paint gave the castle its nickname “Karasujo” (Crow Castle) and the dark color was designed to terrorize approaching opponents. Matsumoto Castle is built on level ground and this has a wide moat as its primary means of defense.

More about Mt.Fuji Discover Mt.Fuji

Mount Fuji (富士山, Fujisan) is with 3776 meters Japan's highest mountain. It is not surprising that the nearly perfectly shaped volcano has been worshiped as a sacred mountain and experienced big popularity among artists and common people throughout the centuries. Mount Fuji is an active volcano, which most recently erupted in 1707. It stands on the border between Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures and can be seen from Tokyo and Yokohama on clear days. Another easy way to view Mount Fuji is from the train on a trip between Tokyo and Osaka. If you take the shinkansen from Tokyo in direction of Nagoya, Kyoto and Osaka, the best view of the mountain can be enjoyed from around Shin-Fuji Station on the right hand side of the train, about 40-45 minutes into the journey. Note however, that clouds and poor visibility often block the view of Mount Fuji, and you have to consider yourself lucky if you get a clear view of the mountain. Visibility tends to be better during the colder seasons of the year than in summer, and in the early morning and late evening hours than during the middle of the day. If you want to enjoy Mount Fuji at a more leisurely pace and from a nice natural surrounding, you should head to the Fuji Five Lake (Fujigoko) region at the northern foot of the mountain, or to Hakone, a nearby hot spring resort. Mount Fuji is officially open for climbing during July and August via several routes.
