♫♫ Must See in Kawaguchiko, Japan - Mount Fuji ♫♫

Lake Kawaguchiko (河口湖) is the most easily accessible of the Fuji Five Lakes with train and direct bus connections to Tokyo. A hot spring resort town with various tourist attractions and views of Mount Fuji is located around the lake's eastern end, while the northern and western shores are mostly undeveloped.

The best views of Mount Fuji can be enjoyed from the lake's northern shores and are particularly breathtaking during the cherry blossom season around mid April and the autumn colors around the first half of November. One of the nicest spots for cherry blossoms is the seaside promenade near the Kawaguchiko Music Forest, while photographers will enjoy the "Momiji Tunnel" for autumn colors, a maple tree covered road section along the lake's northern shore.

I am truly loving your series- as always Antonio. Personally, I despise phone and electrical wires over the landscape but it is something that we live with for the comforts. You captured the feeling of the region well. I'll  take Lake Kawaguchiko thank you!

Thank you my friend. Here in Japan, the use of overhead electrical wires is due to earthquakes. Easier to withstand the earthquakes and to repair afterwards.

Thank You Two, for these wonderful images of beautiful places to visit, especially since we are all tethered to our homes, unable to go anywhere except the grocery, drugstores and fuel stops............sigh.....

#4 - they hang all these wires overhead so that it is easier to repair and to withstand earthquakes. I feel a bit free too by posting these pictures my friend. Thanks for the support and stay safe

I guess that's easier than having to try to find a bad circuit underground or behind a wall......

Always a pleasure!

You two are so blessed. Enjoy every moment. Japan's not implemented any lockdowns? We're on the 17th day of lockdown here in Malaysia, but I'm still determined to feel beautifully blessed each morning. Following David Wilcock's take on the "Great Pandemic, Part IV now... it's intriguing. Also... just had to tell you here before I forget- top doctors are coming out of their own saying that it's not even contagious- it's fear, and the stress of it is intensified by the media- weakening the immune systems of those who are already weak. As a psycholinguist, I completely agree with the these medics- nowadays, we can't even watch anything on tv without having to see those ridiculous "stay home" ads- that ppl all over are mimicking in their social media posts- it's a trap. It's like an opportunity for psychopaths to appear "holier than thou" - asking ppl to stay home- without thinking of the unhealthy consequences- it is not healthy for ppl to stay home instead of under the fresh sunshine and even rain, which actually kills the virus. LOL. Sorry for rambling- thanks for the great shots. Stay happy, and you'll stay healthy, then you'll stay happy heart decoration

These pictures were taken in the end of 2018. Right now I'm at home and locked down like everyone else. So, you are a psycholinguist - now I can understand why you write so well 😀 Stay happy too dear friend
