Lake Kawaguchi, Japan

We set out from Tokyo (where the weather was stunning – bright blue skies with radiant sunshine) hoping to get a glimpse of Mount Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi – one of the five lakes which are found at the base of Mt Fuji. Unfortunately we were sadly disappointed when we arrived – the entire area was surrounded by a thick fog and the temperature was close to freezing. Mount Fuji was no where to be seen. So we spent the afternoon sitting in a lakeside restaurant, eating Hoto Noodles (a local specialty of Lake Kawaguchi) from cast iron bowls, whilst taking in the eerie view of the lake.
