Mount Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi around the Five Lakes of Mount Fuji
Lake Motosu (or 本栖湖 or 'Motosu-ko') is the ninth deepest lake of Japan, at 140 meters, and part of the Five Lakes of Mount Fuji. This lake, along with Lake Sai and Lake Shoji, was formed by lava flowing across what is now Aokigahara Jukai Forest and into the enormous lake that once dominated the area, and these three lakes remain still connected by underground waterways.

The Five Lakes of Mount Fuji include Lake Yamanaka, Lake Kawaguchi, Lake Sai, Lake Shoji, and Lake Motosu, and have been successfully traversed by both Lynne Cox in 1985 and Steven Munatones in 1992.
