The English Version Is Above/日本語は下記   [English]

<Eastern Switzerland, “Lake Shojin”>

One of Mt.Fuji Five Lakes, “Lake Shojin” has been called, “Eastern Switzerland”, for its absolute beauty of nature. More than 100 years ago, a man seeking for superb views around the foot of Mt.Fuji, found “Lake Shojin” attractive and satisfying, then, he introduced the lake to the west as “JAPAN SHOJI”. And in a while, the place became a summer resort famous among westerners. Down to the lakeside, you can catch a breath-taking view of beautiful resonant of Mt.Fuji, Clouds, and Aokigahara-jukai or a vast field around the lake. This beauty is what made westerners come up with its nickname, “Eastern Switzerland” in the end, being reminded of the magnificent nature of Switzerland.   The view unique to the lake is called “Baby Holding Mt.Fuji” as Mt.Fuji looks like holding a smaller mountain in front of it.   And also, fishing and canoeing on the lake are available too, as well as cycling around the lake which is doable yet seeming like a new experience as total nature surrounds you gently while your cycling. There’s a list of Mt.Fuji’s assets below the Japanese. 【日本語】
