It was a beautifull, clear day when we arrived in Kawaguchiko. We left Shinjuku at around 9 am and travelled south towards Mount Fuji via a highway bus, although it took us much longer to get there due to the roads undergoing maintenance.
Once we arrived at the five lakes of Kawaguchiko we had about a three hour wait before we were allowed to check into the hotel so we took the opportunity to take a walk around the lake.
Kawaguchiko is a sleepy little town and it took us a while to adjust after leaving the hectic and busy Tokyo.
