Autumn in Kawaguchiko Lake

As November is just around the corner, leaves are coloring red and yellow in many places in Japan! Kawaguchiko is no exception being surrounded by beautiful nature and you can for sure enjoy the amazing autumn foliage. The addition of the view of Mt. Fuji even adds “Japanese” feel to it and one of the reason why it is so popular.
