At the foot of Mount Fuji, a number of lakes offer different views of Japan's most famous mountain. Among them Lake Sai, Lake Kawaguchi, Lake Motosu, Lake Yamanaka and Lake Shoji make up the Fuji Five Lakes region - in Japanese, Fujigoko. This region, located in Yamanashi Prefecture, offers various superb views of the mountain that recently became a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The famous view immortalized on ¥1000 notes is the view from Lake Motosu. Mount Fuji loses none of its imposing presence from this angle of view.
