If the tour was able to proceed farther than the 1st Station, there will be no alternative itinerary. If the tour was not able to proceed from the 1st Station and the entrance to the Subaru Line cannot be accessed, the tour will head to Lake Kawaguchi.

Oshino Hakkai  (40 min) 

Snowmelt that has sunk into the ground over long years sees daylight again here in the form of pristine fresh water springs. Consisting of 8 springs in total, Oshino Hakkai is a protected natural monument. Enjoy a view of a rural landscape set amidst a backdrop of traditional thatched-roof buildings and Mt. Fuji.

Shiraito Falls  (40 min) 

This picturesque 20 m tall, 200 m wide waterfall is fed by snowmelt flowing down from Mt. Fuji. Here, visitors can walk on the pathway right up to the waterfall basin. In autumn, the colorful leaves that surround the waterfall are a sight not to be missed.

Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine  (20 min) 

Visit the head shrine of all Sengen and Asama shrines throughout Japan. This unique shrine deifies Mt. Fuji itself, and its okumiya, or inner shrine, is located at the very peak. In spring, views of cherry blossoms with Mt. Fuji in the background can be admired from the shrine.
