The Sightseeing Liaison Council of Mt. Fuji West Side Area formed by both cities will issue two passports: “Mt.Fuji West Side Story Passport” and “Mt.Fuji West Side Story Premium Passport” in Japanese and English, in corporation with local sightseeing associations and Fujikyuko Co., Ltd. This is for the purpose of attracting foreign tourists to west side sightseeing areas such as Motosu Lake, Asagiri Highland and Shiraito Waterfalls.
The “Mt.Fuji West Side Story Passport” shows the stories of Mt.Fuji with many views, water and forests, and it also introduces 39 facilities, such as Makaino Farm and a pleasure boat “Moguran” at Motosu Lake, as west side attractions. It is available free at tourist information centers. In addition, Fujikyuko Co., Ltd offers “Mt.Fuji West Side Story Premium Passport” which has coupons for 39 facilities and some gifts when simultaneously purchasing the “Mt.Fuji West Side Area Round-trip Bus Ticket” (\2,500, valid for two days). （Photo②:Diamond Fuji, Lake Tanuki）
Past sightseeing promotion of the west side area was limited due to straddling the prefectures' borders. Therefore, this passport and bus ticket which entirely introduces this entire area of Mt.Fuji are a breakthrough idea and are anticipated to attract tourists both from Japan and overseas.
