Kawaguchi-ko + FujiQ Highland

Kawaguchi-ko (河口湖) is a lake abt 5 km away from Mt Fuji. Peaceful small town with beautiful scenery.

On clear days, you can get a good view of Mt Fuji from here.

Next to it is FujiQ Highland themepark - the place with Japan's most thrilling roller coaster rides.

Here are some links to videos taken DURING the ride:
1st-person view. During the ride, the camera is not shaking. Rather, its due to the fact that the roller coaster seat keeps rotating during the ride.
The ride itself is abt 30 sec, but it takes 40 sec before that to climb to the top of the coaster ride.
Here is another roller coaster:
