The biggest of the Fuji Five Lakes, Lake Yamanaka offers some of Japan’s best views of Mt. Fuji, with nothing but nature in view as you look up at Japan’s loftiest peak.

Despite it’s size, Lake Yamanakako is quite shallow and at high altitude, meaning it completely freezes over in winter. Stepping out onto the lake’s surface for ice fishing is an experience you’ll never forget!
