Tokyo Travel Diary June 2015 – Around Lake Kawaguchiko

So other than the 5 lakes, there are plenty of other things to do at Kawaguchiko. There are plenty of attractions around the area, all linked up via a shuttle service; I would recommend purchasing a full day ticket so that you are free to stop along the bus route at any attraction which strikes your interest.

One of the must sees are the lavender fields with a good view of the lake and mountains. Really picturesque! We took so many pictures of the flowers, even attempted some ‘natural geographic’ types 🙂

Oh yes and eating plenty of soft-serve ice cream along the way.

Another stop were the ice caves surrounded by the beautiful woods. A short trek down into the caves and we came face to face with blocks of ice, pretty cool (yes pun intended).

Then it was back to the city where we decided to go for ramen – this time round Menya Musashi at Shinjuku which was a shoyu based ramen with thick fatty melty goodness of meat.  4 chefs standing behind the counter cooking ramen in a coordinated manner with constant welcome and thank yous to customers like an orchestra of sorts.
