Lake Kawaguchi’s 2018 Winter FireworksRead Later
Lake Kawaguchi hosts a winter fireworks show every year.
The sky is clearer during the winter than in the summer, so the enhanced beauty of the fireworks makes the Lake Kawaguchi show particularly popular.
Located on a 1000-meter-high plateau, “Yamanakako Hananomiyako Park” is home to illumination displays with Mt. Fuji as its gorgeous backdrop. The beautiful starry sky, Mt. Fuji, and heartwarming artful light displays will surely make for lovely memories to share with your special someone.
Fireworks will also be set off during the event period. (Mainly on Saturdays)
We also recommend enjoying the available food stalls, where you can enjoy a delicious meal.

If you have climbed Mount Fuji (at an elevation of 3,776 m), the symbol of Japan, you definitely have a pleasant memory. And if you have seen the sunrise at the summit of Mount Fuji, it is absolutely an unforgettable experience!
People hike up Mount Fuji usually between early July and early September, outside which climbing Mount Fuji is not permitted. Here we recommend the Yoshida trail that is safe and convenient even for first-time climbers.
