DELUXSHIONIST TRAVEL TO LAKE KAWAGUCHIKO YAMANASHI JAPAN BY TOKYO RAIL DAYS INDONESIA

JOURNEY TO YAMANASHI, LAKE KAWAGUCHI - On our third day in Japan, I managed myself to be prepared to see the great symbol of beauty and eternity Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchiko in Yamanashi Prefecture. Thanked God and Tokyo Rail Days Indonesia for making it happened.

It was a one good morning at the Metropolitan Ikebukuro Hotel, there was more time to find right train than yesterday destination to Gala Yuzawa Ski Resort and this time we need to find train called KAIJI at Shinjuku Station (distance from Ikebukuro to Shinjuku is about 10 minutes), also I need to buy our own 1 pass ticket from Ikebukuro-Shinjuku cost ¥160/person (or US$ 1.4 or IDR 17.300). I Swear to God, at first I thought 3 times train changing it would be scary, but when I arrived at Shinjuku station, look around the line before the train come and find so many tourists there, I know I will be fine hahaha

Kaiji train arrived at 9.30 to >>> Otsuki Station (its reserved seat train), during the journey you will find yourself amazing view outside the window.

Arrived at Otsuki Station at 10:37, I need to change the train to Free Seat Fuji Tokkyu, train with animated Mt. Fuji all over its body and then depart at 10:47. Thank God, the ticket was on my hand (this is the perk you get when you buy the JR Tickets already before the trip), so I do not need to wait in line buy or change tickets, just move through the gate, the train was already there.

Then arrived at 11:32, Kawaguchiko Station is most likely like woody mountain house, very classic and warm, but I don’t really get the top 40 songs as a background, I mean why? Anyway, actually you need to change the JR Pass Ticket to some postcard at the locket (but I assumed there was nothing left postcard once I arrived so my JR Pass Ticket is a pass that day). I got free time to ride the shuttle bus only for appointed spot called Red Line (Spot no. 1 to no.22).

Kawaguchiko Lake is surrounded by so many attractions, the highlight spots including;
No.7 Kawaguchiko Herb Hall
No.8 Yamanashi Gem Museum
No.11 Sightseeing Boat & Ropeway
No.16 Kawaguchiko Museum of Art
No.17 Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum
No.22 Kawaguchiko Natural Living Center & Oishi Park

But there are so many spots you can explore depend on what you want to see... you may check Tokyo Rail Days Indonesia site

Spring anything related Sakura Blossoms was over, so I only want to see the beautiful Mt. Fuji-san from a spot no. 11 (sightseeing boat or ropeway), but unfortunately the ropeway was under maintenance, so I decide to enjoy the surrounding while Mt. Fuji-san was behind me, see the lake, feel the breeze, thanked God and decided to move to spot.22 (Kawaguchiko Natural Living Center) to see Mt. Fuji-san little bit closer.

But the luck was gone, I see nothing but clouds covered the top of Mt. Fuji. I wait for quite some time, hope the clouds to stay away and let me see the Mt.Fuji-san as a whole but it never happened, I also pray around the lake corner but of course nothing happened as well.  So I decide to look around the park at Kawaguchiko Natural Living Center and feel the gratefulness for whatever I saw, even the clouds were still there to keep the beauty that still hidden, but I already saw the top of the great Mt.Fuji-san when I was in Fuji Tokyu Train, so there was nothing to complain.

I really want to ride around one more time with shuttle bus, but I remember the timetable and I don’t want miss the train back to Shinjuku. The train from Kawaguchiko to Otsuki was different; it was not the Fuji Tokkyu. Arrived at Otsuki at 17:42 with another Kaiji Train (reserved seat) and finally, arrived at Shinjuku Station at 19:09 – Full day trip at Lake Kawaguchiko at Yamanashi, and I went strolled once again, and this time feels the atmosphere of Shinjuku.
