Itinerary

Day 1: Tokyo – Hakone (L) (D — if upgrade selected)

Your 2-day tour begins with pickup from selected hotels before departing Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal by comfortable coach. Relax during the 2-hour trip to Mt Fuji, Japan's highest mountain, which provides a breathtaking backdrop as its iconic peak looms closer.

Upon reaching the mountain, stop by the Fuji visitor center for approx. 20 minutes to learn about current weather conditions as well as the history, formation and ecology of beloved ‘Fujisan’ through exhibits and films. The second-floor observatory deck provides spectacular close-up views.

Prepare to be wowed as your coach heads uphill to Mt Fuji 5th Station, climbing 7,546 feet (2,300 meters) above sea level. On a clear day, look up the mountain slopes and take in its surrounding lakes; you’ll feel almost close enough to reach out and touch the summit. Torii gates, shrines and souvenir shops decorate this station, known as the border between the heavens and the earth.



Enjoy a Japanese-style lunch with a set meal before continuing on to Lake Ashi for a 15-minute boat cruise from Kojiri to Hakone.

Disembark here to ride the Hakone Komagatake Ropeway for 50 minutes to the mountain peak, situated at an elevation of 4,452 feet (1,357 meters). You’ll have superb views over Hakone National Park before making your descent with your guide.

Stay the night in Hakone, famous for its hot springs (known as onsen) and natural beauty, with a choice of two accommodation options. Upgrade for a Japanese-style room that includes dinner and breakfast the following morning.

Overnight: Hakone Hotel Kowakien or Yunohana Onsen Hotel in Hakone

Day 2: Hakone – Tokyo (B — if upgrade selected)

After checking out of your hotel, you have the entire day free to explore Hakone at your leisure, with a provided Hakone Free Pass. This one-day pass lets you board designated transportation in Hakone, including the Hakone Tozan bus, train, cable car, Hakone Ropeway, Hakone sightseeing ship, Numazu Tozan Tokai bus and Odakyu express bus. With this unlimited access, you don’t need a guide to accompany you to top destinations in the area.

In the early evening, make your own way to Odawara Station by local bus or train and return to Tokyo with a reserved seat aboard the Kodama Shinkansen bullet train, arriving at Tokyo Station in just 40 minutes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

It was a really fun tour. I met some interesting people. Although we didn't get to see Fuji on the first day due to bad weather, the second day exploring Hakone with the 2-day free pass was fantastic!
Thank you so much

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

Firstly the tour was great and well organised. Our guide Mr.Hiro was well behaved and tried his best to make the tour memorable. Though we could not view Mt.Fuji due to bad weather, my husband and I were able to enjoy the snow and our time in Hakone. We were well taken care of and the overall experience was enjoyable.

Room for improvement: Day 1: We felt that there could have been a few more sites or tourist attraction that could have been added. Whether Mt.Fuji can be viewed or not there was still time for other places that could have been included. Perhaps the return journey time by Shinkansen can be changed?? The lunch we had was delicious however it was not very fulfilling.

Day 2: We went around Hakone by ourselves as mentioned in the tour following a map given to us. However we felt that it would have been even better if we were given a little more info and a better plan to figure out the route.

Overall two thumbs up to you guys!! The snow, the bullet train ride, the stay was exceptional. We will choose Viator again but we hope that our suggestions will be taken into consideration.

Cheers!!
