Lake Kawaguchiko is the second biggest lake of 5 Fuji lakes. There are many shops and restaurants around there. When I arrived at, the figure of Mt. Fuji was a little bit misty because the temperature was up. After that, I visited to Kawaguchi Asama shrine that was said to build in 865 AD after the big eruption of Mt. Fuji in 864. There are eleven huge trees. Seven Japanese cedar of them were about 800-year-old, and about 45 meters trees height.
