Lake Yamanaka is the largest of the Fuji Five Lakes near Mt. Fuji. It's not as touristy as Lake Kawaguchi, but there are many vacation lodging owned by universities and companies.

Views of Mt. Fuji are beautiful in fall and winter. There's a good bicycling path around the lake. The road around Lake Yamanaka will also be part of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic cycling road race course from Tokyo to Fuji Speedway.

Yamanakako Tourism Association has tourist information and also rents bicycles. We rented bicycles here. It's slightly away from the main part of the lake.
