Description: Bike around the two of the Fuji Five Lakes that offer the best views of Mount Fuji and the most interesting cultural attractions. Stop at a village where beautifully-preserved traditional thatched-roof Japanese farmhouses encircle crystal-clear ponds. Pass picturesque European-style museums and botanical gardens. In Spring and Summer, view Mount Fuji foregrounded by vast fields of colorful blooms. In Fall, ride under arches formed by maple branches covered with bright red leaves. Relax after the ride with an optional dip in a hot spring bath.
