Sandwiched between Lake Motosu and Lake Sai, Lake Shoji is the smallest of the Fuji Five Lakes. Together with its two neighbors it was formed when lava flows from Mount Fuji divided a large prehistoric lake into three smaller ones. The lakes seem to remain connected by underground waterways as they always maintain the same water level of 900 meters above sea level.
Lake Shoji borders the Aokigahara Jukai forest and remains largely undeveloped except for a few hotels around its northern shore that enjoy excellent views of Mount Fuji. Outdoor activities such as hiking, camping and fishing are popular around the lake, as well as water sports such as water skiing and boating.
Because of its position, it is very good to watch beautiful morning glow and sunrise here at Lake Shoji.
