Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park

The variety of geographical features, flora and fauna in this national park is astounding. Unlike many parks, Fuji-Hakone-Izu consists of a number of different sites throughout the region, which is roughly 100 kilometers (60 miles) west of Yokohama. The park includes five lakes, coastal and mountainous areas, its own natural hot springs and eight volcanic islands. A variety of subtropical plants grow in parts of the park, and it’s home to endemic species such as the green tree frog and the Japanese clawed salamander. Above all, it’s beautiful year-round. From many points you can see iconic Mt. Fuji on clear days.
