This is a bit late though...but better late than nothing right?! Hehe
Sayonara to our lodging in Shinjuku
Our next destination is Kawaguchiko, one of the Fuji 5 Lakes. Fuji 5 Lakes are famous spots for viewing Mount Fuji as they are located at the foot of Mount Fuji. April is off season for climbing Mount Fuji, and the official climbing season runs from July to August. My sister and I planned to hunt for views from the foothills around the Lake Kawaguchi. At this time of year, the view of snow-capped Mount Fuji and sakura is astounding.
Snow capped Mt Fuji
We bought bus ticket for Fujikawaguchiko which departs at 2pm. So we said hello to Tokyo Tower before getting on our bus. We kept our luggages in the lockers available at the train station before heading towards the Tokyo's landmark.
More cherry blossom
Everybody on the bus was euphoric upon seeing this
The Fujikawaguchiko station; small yet cozy
Mount Fuji can be seen from the window
It was a 2-storey house, fit for a group of 6-8 people I would say
If you ring the bell with your beloved...(you can guess what comes after, no?)

Enjoying the view from the observation deck
We were lucky to have met this sunset view
