Lake Saiko is located at the center of the Fuji Five Lakes region. Fishing, camping and bird watching can be enjoyed in its vast natural environment.
Lake Saiko is one of the lakes of the beautiful ”Fuji Five Lakes.” With Mount Fuji and other fabulous vistas in the background, you can enjoy all kinds of sports like windsurfing, fishing and canoeing. There is an auto camping site by the lake with plenty of facilities such as bungalows, cottages, showers and barbecue grills. You can view around 60 different species of wild birds like the white-eye and varied tits in the Aokigahara woodlands that spread out near Lake Saiko. ”Saiko Yacho-no-Mori” (forest of the wild birds) is perfect for a peaceful walk through the woods and bird watching. There are also lava caves, including one stretching over 350 meters, and the ”Narusawa” wind cave that is covered in ice throughout the year, where you will be able to encounter the mystery of nature. To access, take the Saiko Retro Bus from Kawaguchiko Station and get off at Saiko Station. If you take the highway express bus from Shinjuku, you can get here in just over 2 hours.
