I cycled around the Fuji Five Lakes because Tokyo was still hot.|
I brought my bike in a bag on the train and arrived at Gotemba Station at 7:55. I went up 650m to Kagosaka Pass, 1104m above sea level, on the prefectural border. Afterwards the course was mainly downhill.
I had a long rest at the mountain pass and cycled down to the Yamanakako Lake in one go.
Unfortunately Mt. Fuji was covered in cloud all day long.
I observed the old houses that had been restored in the Saiko Lakeside museum. 20 thatched roof houses were built here.
In the evening, I cycled high-speed downhill to Fuji Station via Shojinko Lake and Motosuko Lake. I cycled 121.88km today.
