Trip around fuji

Today let me introduce my trip around fuji, and especially at fujiyoshida.

Fujiyoshida is a city located in Yamanashi Prefecture in the Mount Fuji Five Lakes Region in the center of Honshu Island in Japan. Popular with tourists for its famous Chureito Pagoda, it is also home to the Fuji Q-Highland Sensation Park as well as several shrines dedicated to the sacred mountain.

From shinjuku it will take you only 2 hours and around 2000 yen, you can also take the bus for the same price, i like both and the road is always wonderful.
Once arrived to fujiyoshida station you will directly be able to see the majestic mount Fuji, it’s very impressive and so beautiful that i couldn’t stop watching it during my whole trip.

THE CHUREITO PAGODA
The mythical view of Mount Fuji

Chureito Pagoda is a monument belonging to Arakurayama Sengen Shrine, located in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi Prefecture.
Perched on the heights of the park, facing the city, it enjoys a breathtaking view of Mount Fuji.
In spring with its cherry trees and in autumn with its maple trees, this landscape turns out to be one of the most famous clichés of Japan.
It’s a little bit hard to reach the top cause they have many steps.
And from the pagoda, you can take 4 hours of hikes in the surrounded mountains.
But it’s not necessary to hikes to have a beautiful view of the city and Mount Fuji, from the pagoda the view is wonderful and I took some photos that I would love to share with you..

Fuji Q highland

Fuji-Q Highland (富士急ハイランド) is one of Japan’s most popular amusement parks, located in the Fuji Five Lake region at the foot of Mount Fuji.
It is best known for its thrilling, record-breaking roller coasters and elaborate, anime- themed rides and attractions.
The park strives to be at the forefront of theme park entertainment, and has been constantly opening new rides and attractions, including Guinness World Record breaking roller coasters.
The admission to the park is free.
Individual rides cost between 400 and 2000 yen.
The regular cost for a 1-day pass for unlimited rides is 6000 yen.

Fujiyama onsen

Next to Fuji-Q Highland in Lake Kawaguchi, Yamanashi Prefecture, a pure Japanese-style one-day hot spring, Fujiyama Onsen. Fujiyama Onsen is a natural hot spring where all spring quality hot spring is blended, which is rare even in the whole country. It is a hot spring that is expected to be effective for skin care. I really enjoyed this japanese traditional onsen.

Thank you for reading me and I really hope I will be able soon to write about my new adventure.
