The second largest and lowest lake of the Fuji Five Lakes, Kawaguchiko Lake is located between Fujikawaguchiko and Minobu, within the borders of Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Lake Kawaguchiko also has the longest shoreline, meaning it has breathtaking views, particularly on the northern side. Prior to 1914, the surrounding areas of the lake used to flood, as there was no natural outlet from the lake. However, a canal was built to connect the lake to a tributary of the Sagami River. The lake is a popular resort for tourists, with many water activities available, such as windsurfing, boat trips and fishing for carp and wakasagi. The lake is also used as a starting point for climbers of Mount Fuji during the season. The lake is listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the Fujisan Cultural Site. The lake is easily accessible with many direct trains and buses to and from Tokyo.
