I do not recommend this trail. It’s just an 18 km walk mostly not only along, but actually ON the super busy road going around the lake. You‘re constantly in danger of cars, motorcycles and trucks. There is no actual nature to see apart from the lake. The shoreline, where you walk on road, is full of Hotels, Apartment complexes and other big buildings. The view of the Fuji you get while walking the northern shore are okay.
