Experience local arts, culture and the most magnificent lakeside views in Mount Fuji's foothills!


Bike around all of the Fuji Five Lakes and experience breathtaking and diverse views of Mount Fuji. Leave urban Japan behind and travel off the beaten path on lovely country roads relatively few tourists see. Drop into lush, forested valleys where clear, still lake waters reflect mountains and sky.

See an atmospheric ancient temple and a "floating" shrine on one of the lakes. Explore a beautifully-preserved traditional village where artisans produce elaborate hand-made crafts in traditional Japanese thatched-roof farmhouses. Visit parks where vast flower gardens foreground the iconic mountain.

If you take this tour in Spring, you'll view Mt Fuji framed by exquisite cherry blossoms. In Summer, the lake is encircled by wildflowers and emerald, tree-blanketed hills. In Fall, you'll ride under arches formed by maple and ginko branches covered with bright red and yellow leaves. And in Winter, you'll gaze past towering evergreens at Fuji and its magnificent crown of snow.
