Outdoor activities on the lake include wind surfing, paddle boarding, fishing, and canoeing. Lake Motosu is also known for its fantastic campground, Motosuko Camping Ground. From the north shore, you can admire the same sight of Mt. Fuji as it is designed and printed on the 1,000yen bill. A spectacular view you will never forget!
