Lake Tanuki (Double Diamond Fuji)

Special place to spend a leisurely time,

The perfect place for photographers!

Lake Tanuki (田貫湖 Tanukiko) is located in a corner of the vast Asagiri highland, Fujinomiya City, Shizuoka prefecture(west side of Mountain Fuji). The lake, 1.0km from east to west, 0.5km from south to north, and 4.0km around, mystically reflects the image, not to mention of Mt.Fuji, of Mt. Tenshigadake, the mountain with many legendary stories. Enjoy yourself fully with cherry blossoms in spring, red leaves in autumn, viewing Mt. Fuji, camping, boating and hiking. Fishing hera-buna is widely known throughout Japan. Originally a swampy area, the lake was created in 1935 by diverting the waters of nearby Shiba River to create a reservoir for use in irrigation.

The lake is now a popular vacation location, with camp sites, fishing, boating and is noted for its views of Mount Fuji. This terrace is the famous photo spot that many photographers gather to take photos of Mount Fuji.(especially to take photos of Double Mout Fuji).
