●11:00 Kachi Kachi Ropeway

This “Ropeway” or cable car is located by the famous Lake Kawaguchi, and it’ll take you to the top of a small mountain where you can enjoy another panoramic view of the lake, Mt. Fuji and other areas around. This is very beautiful and enjoyable when the weather is nice! 

If you are not tired, you can choose to walk down the hill by taking the trail through the mountain. It takes around 40min and you can enjoy refreshing walk through woods.

●12:30 Lunch at a Local Restaurant

There are some unique local foods in the area, and “Yoshida Ueodn” is one of them. The noodle is thicker and more chewy than normal udon noodles, and the soup has a faint plavor of miso. This udon is typically served with boiled cabbage.

There are options for toppings: tempra, seasoned meat, eggs, etc. This is another type of food that you can only enjoy in the area.
