Lake Saiko (西湖)


Located at an elevation of 900 meters, Lake Saiko is one of the Fuji Five Lakes. At 2.12 square kilometers, it is not very large, but it is deep, about 72 meters, and its intensely blue surface has a mystic beauty. Whether it is azaleas in the spring, verdant greenery in the early summer, colored leaves in the fall, or soft rime in the winter, visitors can enjoy scenic beauty in every season, and the lake is a favorite spot for water activities. In 2010, kunimasu (local salmon), believed to live only Lake Tazawa in Akita Prefecture, were found in Lake Saiko for the first time in 70 years, a discovery that made news headlines.

          Yamanashi prefecture is the proud home of one of Japan’s most celebrated icons: Mount Fuji. Although the mountain straddles both Yamanashi and Shizuoka, the most breathtaking views of Fuji-san can be seen from the Fuji Five Lakes north of the mountain in Yamanashi prefecture. The plethora of outdoor activities in and around the lakes all have the benefit of the country’s highest mountain as their backdrop, and we can assure you that it is an unforgettable sight.
