Lake Shoji (精進湖, Shōjiko) is a Mount Fuji World Cultural Heritage Site Asset and the smallest of the Fuji Five Lakes. It is only 15.2 metres at its deepest point. Like its neighbours, Saiko and Motosuko, Lake Shoji was formed as a separate lake from an eruption of Mount Fuji in the 9th century. The eastern side of the lake snakes off like a river and provides some spectacular views with Mount Fuji in the background (the section of the road from this spot is excellent for photography).
