Fuji is home to amazing spots that you can choose to take a new start with your partner.

The two lakes here, Kawaguchi-ko and Yamanaka-ko, are inspiringly beautiful to tie the knot. Here, you have two options: Lake Kawaguchi is perfect for a picturesque lakeside. On the other hand, Lake Yamanaka is more rural. In addition, at Lake Yamanaka, rituals can be held anywhere by the lake, a few inches from the water’s edge.
