Fuji-Hakone-Izu Park 富士箱根伊豆国立公園

A park of many faces

Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park enhances the surroundings of Mount Fuji, as well as the Hakone region and Izu Peninsula. This park has one with the most varied landscapes in Japan!

Mount Fuji: the 3,776 meter ascent is an unforgettable experience and one that, if you believe the proverb, makes you a wise man. However, the most famous mountain in Japan has more than one string to his bow. There are five of them: the Fujigoko (the five lakes): Motosu, Shoji, Sai, Kamaguchi and Yamanaka, which are also part of the national park. They are the result of the volcanic activity of Mount Fuji, and it's possible to cross them by kayak. Or do you prefer to walk? A hike around the lakes will allow you to admire Mount Fuji and its reflection in their waters and take (very instagramable) photos. You can also visit the "sea of ​​trees", Aokigahara, a young forest of only 1,200 years old. You can see many natural caves and other waterfalls. And don't miss the falls of Shiraito-no-Taki, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Japan!

The volcanic region of Hakone

Hakone is best known for its natural onsen and breathtaking views of Mount Fuji. The ascent of Mount Kintoki, whose summit culminates at "only" 1,213 meters, offers you an unparalleled panorama on the sacred mountain. Lake Ashinoko also gives a glimpse of the beautiful sunny days of Mount Fuji. You can also visit Hakone shrine and admire the various sculptures of Buddha. There are also many hiking trails, especially at Owakudani valley, that allow you to cross unusual volcanic landscapes.

The Izu peninsula and archipelago

The third area of ​​the park includes volcanic landscapes and the ocean. The coast itself is a complex landscape, alternating cliffs and small coves, due to volcanic activity and natural erosion. Admire the sunset at Cape Irozaki, stroll through the beech forest of Amagi Mountain, swim on the islands of Shikine and Miyake. You can even snorkel or scuba dive: it's a rare opportunity to observe underwater volcanic landscapes!
