Now, the cottage in “Acty Mori”. It looked rather like real residential houses to me. I talked to a manager to let me in the room to introduce it in our report. Here is the details.
￥10,000 ／1-2 guest(s)
￥20,000 ／up to 5 guests
￥10,000 ／for one-day use
Equipment：kitchen, cooking utensils, microwave, fridge, rice cooker, TV, air-conditioner, bathroom, washroom, 2 beds and 3 sets of futon ( Japanese-style bedding ). BBQ kit available
The bedroom is upstairs. It may be too spacious for 2 guests but couples could enjoy a virtual married life.＾＾ Though these plans doesn’t come with dinner or breakfast, there is some restaurants nearby in Acty Mori. Or soba noodle house is beside the cottage. You can also experience Soba noodle making there !
Camping site is also available a few minute drive away. Don’t let go this opportunity that you can enjoy your days in the great nature !
On my way back, I dropped at a ryokan near Enshu Mori station to have a late lunch. I could have had lunch in Acty but it’s always more intriguing in ryokan, isn’t it ?＾＾ Most of these dishes are of local fish and vegetables. Especially, I liked lemon-soaked tuna sashimi. Fishes all come from Omaezaki Port, he explained. I finished up all of them in no time and had a second rice !＾＾
Access ： 2 minute walk from Enshu Mori Station
Lunch ： ￥790〜
Open Hours ： 11:30 – 14:00
After that, I drop by a Japanese cake shop for the famous “Ume-goromo”. It’s kind of difficult to describe but imagine, manju ( cake with sweet bean paste inside ) wrapped by a sheet of shiso ( beefsteak plant ) used for making umeboshi ( Japanese pickled plum ). Weird, isn’t it ? But it tastes surprisingly good. No wonder it has become so popular !
Access ： 10 minute walk from Enshu Mori Station.
Open Hours ： 8:30 – 19:00 ( closed on Wednesdays )
So what about my report this time ?＾＾ I wish I could report “Otagawa Dam”, “Kawasemi Lake” and “Tomodake House” that I mentioned last time. Maybe someday, I will.
Have a good day !

“Shizuoka Guide” is our official English blog website for events & sightseeing. Always with you ! ＾＾
I know some of you know Mt. Fuji but have you ever heard of “Diamond Fuji” ? It indicates the moment when the rising sun shows itself right in the top of Mt. Fuji and the scenery always makes us feel something supernatural.
Today, I introduce a lake where you can see the Diamond Fuji, Lake Tanuki in Fujinomiya !
Lake Tanuki is rather a small lake of 4km in circumference. It takes only about 1 hour to walk around but all attractions are here in Lake Tanuki !
Cycling comes first. Actually, I did it on the day. Only 20 – 30 minutes to make the circuit. Ready to go anytime＾＾ In my case, because I stopped at many spots for taking pictures, it took me about 1 hour. Though Mt. Fuji had been deep in the clouds, it sometimes showed up to say hello to me.＾＾
The trail along the lake is well-arranged. It will give us spectacular views at any time. Still, you can’t commit yourself to it because a single step will let you into the great nature ! I’ve just heard the story that some deer, hogs, and even bears were witnessed nearby. I myself actually saw a huge snake on my way. Sorry that I couldn’t catch him in the picture because we got away from each other at first sight. ＞＜
The only one I could take is this, Phasmid, also known as Walking Stick. It usually blends in bush and we can rarely recognize it. Collecting insects such as beetles would be fun this season !＾＾
Now, Lake Tanuki is very popular also for the camping site. Communal kitchens, showers and washrooms equipped. Bungalows are also available to feel the life in the nature for the visitors who don’t have a tent or who don’t like to sleep in a tent. Or, if you don’t like even the bungalow, there is a hotel named "Kyukamura Fuji" beside the lake. Make it a special night of your life !＾＾
The hottest activity, besides cycling and hiking around Lake Tanuki, is, I heard, fishing ! Hera-buna crucian is the No1 target. I saw some of them trying for the Black Bass. I talked to a man. He said he had been having too quiet time.＾＾； Catches seems to vary depending on the day. What do you think ?

Next time, I’ll report from the 5th station of Mt. Fuji on Fujinomiya Trail !
