The roads around the lakes are great fun to ride.

Arrive at the last of the Five Lakes. Motosu Lake.
This is the deepest lake. I love the blue water color of this lake on a sunny day.

View No.16 The Errant Bungy Cord

View No. 17. The Five Thousand Yen Bill

I am standing on the spot where the picture was painted for the old five thousand yen bill.

The note was suspended on April 2nd 2007 when a new design was introduced. Shame, I liked this bank note.
The obverse showed a picture of Nitobe Inazo a politician during the Meiji Period.

Right, that's a wrap with the Five Lakes. The Five Lakes is a really good ride. Easy to do day trip from Tokyo. if you ever find yourself in the Tokyo area with a free day, rent a bike and ride the Five Lakes.

Now let's head a little closer to the mountain.
