The 25th Fuji-kawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival in 2023 (October 28 to November 23, 2023)

Lake Kawaguchi, nestled beneath the iconic Mount Fuji, is renowned among the Fuji Five Lakes. In spring, cherry blossoms paint the landscape, while lavender graces the summer. Winter invites you to revel in the Lake Kawaguchi Winter Fireworks Festival, and in autumn, a spectacular display of crimson leaves awaits. During this season, the verdant foliage transforms into a vibrant sea of red, typically reaching its peak beauty in early to mid-November.

The autumn season brings forth a plethora of events, primarily centered around the Lake Kawaguchi facilities. Notably, the Foliage Festival adorns the famous foliage corridor of Lake Kawaguchi with a mesmerizing array of colorful lights, creating an enchanting fairy-tale atmosphere for strolling visitors. Additionally, as of 2022, a new section called “Oku no Hosomichi” has been introduced to enhance this experience.
