The Fuji-Hakone-Izu Nationalpark covers an area of 1218,5 square kilometres within the Yamanashi, Shizuoka and Kanagawa Prefectures (Chūbu and Kantō regions). It was established on February 2, 1936.

The park is divided in four areas:

The Mount Fuji area including the Fuji Five Lakes area.
The Hakone Volcano area.
The Izuhanto Peninsula with mountains (Amagi-san) and the coastline.
The main parts of the Seven Islands of Izu in the ocean.

The Mt. Fuji is the core of the nationalpark. Around the northern half of its foot is situated the Fuji Five Lakes area. The lakes were created by its previous volcanic activity and are known as Lake Motosu, Lake Shoji, Lake Saiko, Lake Kawaguchi and Lake Yamanaka.
