Lake Kawaguchi-limited attractions that appear only in summer every year

What do you think of every summer? Cool soft serve ice cream? Go surfing at the beach?

I will be reminded of the lavender festival held every year in the Kawaguchiko area under Mt. Fuji! It's like going to Japan every spring to catch the cherry blossoms.

Every year from early June to mid-July, Lake Kawaguchi holds a month-long lavender festival. If you can seize this opportunity to come to Lake Kawaguchi, you can watch the endless sea of lavender flowers under the background of Mt. Fuji, and you can also take pictures with lavender non-stop!

This year's Lake Kawaguchi Lavender Festival is held from June 24th to July 17th at two different venues, "Yagizaki Venue" and "Oishi Venue".
There are a lot of lavender in both venues, you can decide which one to go to first depending on the itinerary~ Or both are good~
If you are interested in photography, don't miss it~
