Lake Yamanakako is the largest of the Fuji Five Lakes, and is shaped like a whale when viewed from the air. Due to its high altitude and its relatively shallow water depth, Lake Yamanakako freezes completely in the winter. During the winter months, one can enjoy ice fishing for wakasagi (Japanese pond smelt). This is an area where some Japanese families have second homes, due to its outstanding natural beauty and scenery.
