Optional Tour Sales

The center sells optional tours with Lake Kawaguchiko as a starting point, focusing on tours to visit various locations within Yamanashi, with a "FUJIYAMA Twin Terrace*" visit tour as the centerpiece.

*A scenic spot offering a panoramic view of Mount Fuji and Lake Kawaguchiko. On lucky days, visitors can even witness Mount Fuji floating above the sea of clouds below.
