It was a beautifully clear day when we arrived in Kawaguchiko. We left Shinjuku at around 9am and travelled south towards Mount Fuji via a highway bus, it took us much longer to get there than we were hoping as most of the highways we travelled on were undergoing maintenance so there was very heavy traffic.
Once we arrived at the 5 lakes of Kawaguchiko we had about a 3 hour wait before we was allowed to check into the hotel so we took the opportunity to take a walk around the lake. Kawaguchiko is a sleepy little town and it took us a while to adjust after leaving the hectic and busy Shinjuku.
We went in this bath about 10 times in 2 days. It was lovely and the water was always at temperatures of between 40-45 degrees. This is a 3 Stop HDR taken from our Private Balcony at the Hotel Konsanso in Kawaguchiko Japan.
