Asumi Lotus Lake （明見湖・蓮池）
Asumi Lotus Lake (not so big, but it's considered as one of fuji "eight" lakes... ) is located in Asumi area in Fujiyoshida-city. I have never seen so many lotus flowers at one time. We can enjoy this beautiful scenery until 20th of August this year. According to a man who has long been taking care of this lake, his ancestor "Uhei Hirose" transplanted some of them about 200 years ago. It's the origin of this lotus lake, they said. Next time I want to go there before dawn to hear the sound of flower blooming.
