Kawaguchiko Herb Festival – Beautiful Blooms at the Base of Mount Fuji; Tyas Utami; Taiken Japan

Japan – Fujisan, sacred place and source of artistic inspiration

Japan is well known for the beauty of Mount Fuji. Since 20121 it has been registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage. Lake Kawaguchi (also known as Kawaguchi-ko in Japanese) in Yamanashi prefecture completes the beauty of Mt Fuji with its large water surface and its surrounding nature. While there is plenty of nature to discover in the area, I’d like to introduce you to the Kawaguchi-ko Herb Festival, held here annually in June and July, during which you can enjoy panoramic views of Mount Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi, all while surrounded by blooming lavender and other herb flowers.
