Our scrapbook notes about Fuji

Fuji is the area known for the famous, and the highest mountain in Japan, Mount Fuji. Just south of Tokyo, the mountain can be seen from miles around, especially during the spring and summer months. To access and climb the mountain it is best to go during the summer months. But if you wish to stay near the mountain, then perhaps it is better to stay in the Fuji Five Lakes area. The name speaks for itself, it is an area of five lakes which is popular for travellers, therefore there is plenty of accommodation available. However, the area can be a bit difficult and expensive to get around if you don't have a car. But the area is filled with many hot springs, shrines, temples and even a popular theme park, Fuji Q Highland, therefore offering a lot to keep you entertained.
