Helpful information about Kawaguchiko-station

Transit and transportation
Kawaguchiko Station serves as the final destination on the Fujikyuko Line and the starting point for exploring Mount Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi. It is a journey less than two hours in total from Shinjuku Station to Otsuki Station on the express train via the JR Chuo Main Line, followed by the express train from Otsuki Station on the Fujikyuko Line. Renting a car at the station is the best way to explore the area. Driving from Tokyo and Yokohama takes close to two hours and 45 minutes via the Tomei Expressway.
Sightseeing and activities
The Mt. Fuji Panoramic Ropeway offers a sweeping view of Mount Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi. A sightseeing boat ride on Lake Kawaguchi offers a unique perspective of the scenery, including the rare sight of Mount Fuji reflected upside on the water during clear days. Both sites are a brief five-minute drive from Kawaguchiko Station. There are also many stunning locations to experience nature and art within a short 15- or 20-minute drive from Kawaguchiko Station. The Narusawa Ice Cave, with its summer coolness and cave icicles, is a place of intrigue for tourists. Both the Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum and Kawaguchiko Museum of Art are worth visiting as well, with each providing ample parking for guests. A rental car will give you the freedom to visit the other Fuji Five Lakes (Lake Motosu, Lake Shoji, Lake Sai, Lake Yamanaka) and Fuji-Q Highland, roughly 15 to 30 minutes away.
Local events
The Fuji-Kawaguchiko Cherry Blossom Festival and the Lake Kawaguchi Fireworks Festival are well-known events. With a rental car, you’ll be able to enjoy the fireworks festivals at any of the Fuji Five Lakes. In autumn, the Fuji Kawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival showcases natural attractions like the Lake Kawaguchi Momiji-kairo (Maple Corridor) and draws many visitors with spectacular autumn colors.
Seasonal information
The average annual temperature in Lake Kawaguchi is nearly 52 degrees Fahrenheit, making it an attractive location for summer getaways. During the chilly winter season, the abundance of sunny days makes it excellent for admiring the majestic view of Mount Fuji. For snowy winter months, consider using studless winter tires for driving.
