Description: This tour takes you to the best sights and viewpoints around three of the lakes at the foot of Mount Fuji while keeping the biking distance short enough to be easy for a person of low to average fitness. Our support car drives you between each of the three lakes so you can skip the hills and enjoy a leisurely bike ride on the area's flattest courses. Explore picturesque countryside, including a beautifully-preserved village of thatched-roof houses where artisans make traditional crafts. Pass white swans floating across Fuji's reflection on a lake's surface. Depending on the season, view Mt Fuji foregrounded by vast fields of flowers or visit a cave with spectacular ice formations.
