Sunset at Lake Saiko


Running on the beach at Lake Saiko

After exploring Mount Fuji, we decided to drive around the lakes at the base of the mountain, looking for a spot to watch the sunset and let the kids play. Lake Saiko was the perfect place for that.

Looking for rocks at Lake Saiko

We found a quiet spot and let the kids throw rocks for a while, their favorite water activity. The sunset was so beautiful. I couldn't believe the beauty of this place. It reminded me of summers in Waterton National Park. I never knew Japan held this kind of beauty.

Sweetness between Dad and Skye at lake Saiko

Skye cuddled with us on the rocky beach, turning rocks around in her hands and licking them.

I love the way the light sets over mountain peaks. It makes a beautiful backdrop for environmental portraits.

Water in her boots at Lake Saiko

Amelia wandered into the water a little too far and found her boots flooding. Of course, she kept on playing and didn't worry about the wet boots. There was too much fun to be had.

finding shells and rocks on the beach at lake Saiko

Amelia loves to collect rocks and shells and anything unique. With her memory, she'll probably remember this came from the lake by Fuji forever. That is, if it survives past the many purgings we have to do so her room doesn't fill up with rocks.

I love the way she's looking at her dad in this image, and her clear blue eyes.

This was such beautiful spot and I'd love to go back some day.

And this is how Brad feels about me capturing one last shot as we left Lake Saiko.
