Lake Saiko Bat Cave西湖コウモリ穴

Cave

These caves located in the Aokigahara Sea of Trees , designated as national Natural Monument, are some of the largest lava tubes in the foothills of Mt. Fuji. The temperatures in the caves, which stay warm even during winter, are so stable that ice does not form. Their name comes from the fact that they were once home to countless numbers of bats. The lava shelf, lava stalactites, rope lava, and other features formed by volcanic activity are truly stunning.

          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.
