Shiraito Water Falls

Yesterday we visited Shiraito Falls and Mount Fuji.

The Falls were lovely, and the water was crystal clear.

The main food for sale at the falls was ice cream, ice cream, and more ice cream. (being 10AM the lunch vendors were not quite up and running yet. So, we had ice cream. Peach ice cream. It was the best, most real, peach ice cream we had ever had. We had been informed that this area was known for the quality of it's peaches, and they weren't kidding.

We then headed to a lunch buffet at the Fuji View Hotel. There was a lot of food to choose from. My favorites were the tofu with tomato and cheese, the tamago (Japanese layered egg omelet), and the thinly sliced swordfish.

The hotel had a lovely, little pond filled with huge koi.

Next up: Mount Fuji.
