Japan Day One- Kawaguchiko, Fuji Five Lakes

Lake Kawaguchi or Kawaguchi-ko is one of the five lakes located near Mt Fuji. It's one of the more popular sites for tourists, and also serves as a base for Mt Fuji climbers during the climbing season in July and August.



Driving past Mt Fuji- not an ideal day to spot the mountain weather wise, so it was a surprise to actually see it!

One of their speciality items is lavender ice cream- this is half vanilla and half lavender, as recommended by the tour guide, as straight lavender can apparently be quite overwhelming!
