These four lakes are all connected by the same system of bus loops. You can see a map of those bus loops here. This post, meanwhile, contains 15 all-new (as in, not published on GaijinPot) photo highlights from different places along the loops. Fujikyu’s Red/Green/Blue Omni and Retro Bus lines are a great way to explore the area.
This post is meant to give a broad pictorial overview of some of the things there are to see and do in the vicinity of these four lakes. For more information on the places featured in the pictures, check out the four linked entries above.
