【Cherry Blossom Season (Limited Edition)】Photographer’s sanctuary

  • Cherry Blossom Viewing

Ubuyagasaki is a small cape on the north shore of Lake Kawaguchiko near Kawaguchiko Ohashi-Bridge. It is a popular view point of Mt. Fuji especially in spring for its spectacular view of Mt. Fuji with cherry blossoms. This is not a place where people bring lunch boxes or sake and have picnic under cherry blossoms. It is rather popular among photographers. Unfortunately, as it is located on the north side of Mt. Fuji, you have to take photos against the sun during the day. For this reason, it may be a good idea to visit the place early in the morning or in the evening. If you are very lucky, you might see the reflection of Mt. Fuji on the surface of Lake Kawaguchiko. This happens only when there is no wind at all and the surface of the lake is completely still.

Ubuyagasaki literally means ‘a cape of childbearing-hut’ and it is believed that the son of the Goddess of Mt. Fuji and his wife built childbearing-hut here and gave birth to a baby boy. According to the legend, the Goddess of Mt. Fuji visited Ubuyagasaki to see her grandson and she brought baby clothes with her. Based on this story, on 25th of April every year, the priests of Kawaguchi Asama Shrine visit this place carrying baby clothes.

To get to Ubuyagasaki, take Retro-bus/Omnibus red line from Kawaguchiko station, get off at Ubuyagasaki and walk towards Kawaguchiko Ohashi-Bridge. It is about 10 minute’s bus ride. The cherry blossoms season is usually mid- April.
