Lake Kawaguchi of Mount Fuji

{Note: Actually this is my scheduled post as I am on my way to KL for 2 days to attend one of my coursemate's wedding. Never thought that when I was small, received tons of invitation card to attend for friend's birthday party but now receiving invitation card for friend's wedding party. Oh ya! There is a tremendous changes in my blog. Find out what had I change.}

Without noticing, we were almost closed to the end of our Japan trip. During our second day in Tokyo, we went to one of the infamous Japan's Holy Mountain, Mount Fuji.

Mount Fuji, a dormant volcano is the highest mountain in Japan and its perfectly symmetrical volcanic cone is well-known as Japan's symbol. But do you know where is the best places to view Mount Fuji from a close distance?

As there is no direct access to Mount Fuji by train, the most nearer staging points are either Fujiyoshida or Kawaguchiko. Both of us opt for Kawaguchiko instead.

Lake Kawaguchiko is the easiest to access and offers more things to see and do among Fuji Five Lakes. The other four lakes are less developed and not as easy to access by public transportation.

However, the mountain is not always visible to view due to the clouds and poor visibility. OK! We are unlucky one to see the world most beautiful mountain and perfectly shaped volcano.

I am dog lover.
If I see dog everytime I'm on going, sure won't miss out any opportunity to snap them.
For example, during my Wales trip, few photo with dogs which I took (click here)
