Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

Start your full-day trip with morning hotel pickup at selected Tokyo hotels or meet your guide at Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. Then travel by air-conditioned coach via a scenic 2.5-hour route to Mt Fuji's 5th Station, located 7,607 feet (2,305 meters) above sea level.

The natural beauty of the Japanese landscape will amaze you at your first destination: Fuji Visitor Center. Learn about Mt Fuji through displays and films on the ecology, weather conditions, history and culture around the mountain and the Fuji Five Lakes. Your 20-minute stop includes the second-floor observatory deck, which provides up-close views of the iconic mountain on a clear day.

Return to your coach and continue on to 5th Station, located about halfway up the mountain, for more breathtaking views of the surrounding lakes. You have 30 minutes to explore the souvenir shops, torii gates and shrines that decorate this station, known as the border between the heavens and the earth.

If you’ve opted for an upgrade, savor the views over a Japanese-style lunch, or you can purchase your own food.

With your appetite sated, drive to nearby Lake Ashi, a crater lake formed after a powerful volcanic eruption nearly 3,000 years ago in what is now Hakone National Park. Embark on a 15-minute cruise over Lake Ashi, which provides postcard views of Mt Fuji, Mt Komagatake and other mountains from various angles.

From the lake's shores, take the Mt Komagatake Ropeway to the summit and enjoy scenic vistas over Hakone National Park. For 50 minutes, including time to walk around at the peak, the aerial tram provides sweeping views of majestic Mt Fuji, the Izu Peninsula and the Izu Islands, among other sights.

Your tour concludes with a transfer to Tokyo by coach, dropping you off at Shinjuku or Ginza station in the evening. Take in the great night views and restaurants of upscale Ginza, known as one of the world’s most luxurious shopping districts.

For those not wanting to return to Tokyo, you have the option to end your tour at Odawara station, gateway to Kyoto and other cities connected by shinkansen.

This tour also offer a discounted option with pickup at Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku for direct transfer to Mt Fuji without stopping at Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. This Shinjuku direct departure option allows you to spend more time at Mt Fuji. Please select

Excellent tour our guide was very informative all through the day gave us a lot of information on Japan. She was very funny and we even did oragami lessons on our way home in the bus. We were very lucky we had a fine day and saw my Fuji ... Very very lucky .... Great day well worth doing

Mt Fuji is really amazing. I've enjoyed it and would love to be back in Tokyo in any of my future trips!

The only thing is I wasn't able to get discount of 10 when I booked this trip using my mobile phone. Discount is only available if you're accessing the site using desktop but everything gone well. Kudos Viator!

Fabulous day, fabulous scenery. We were warned that this time in mid November is cloudy and we would not be able to see Mount Fuji. But half an hour before we arrived at the fifth station, the clouds parted and we saw Mount Fuji in all her glory plus great pictures when we got there. The Lake Ashi area Hakone is beautiful and the cruise is lovely. The rope line is spectacular although Mount Fuji was obscured again by the time we got there but this entire day was so good I rally can't complain. Pick the Japanese lunch. It wasn't too exotic but still a little adventurous. Tour guide Harry was great but struggled with being understood as his accent was strong in English. Get DETAILED instructions about your train or subway stop when they drop you off after the tour. It was a nightmare finding my correct train as there are several trains and subway systems that operate in Tokyo and you have to know the correct one. Still it was the quintessential Tokyo experience being stuffed into a subway car with hundreds of others and I made it back to my hotel by myself in the end. The Japanese people are so very helpful anyway so if you get lost, just keep asking until you find someone who speaks English well enough.

My first trip to Tokyo. Amazing experience. The lady guide kept everyone engaged with several fun activities in the bus. Thanks.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Amazing! We were a group of 9 from Estonia and we all enjoyed this trip. The weather was not that great but the 5th station was a sight to see - so many climbers and a lovely souvenire shop. The lunch was also delicious and we got to taste the local wine also. Delicious - I think we all bought one :. The sightseeing cruise was also amazing - stunning views of Japanese nature! So all in all, we all enjoyed it and we would recommend this trip to everyone - you wont regret it!

Great tour, and we had an especially amazing tour guide, Shima-san. It went by very quickly! Taking the bus version of this tour meant more time on the road, next time I might consider the shinkansen version. Something to consider as you get back to Tokyo during rush hour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We were incredibly lucky that weather was fantastic and there had been a snowfall at the peak a few days earlier so views were fantastic. Our guide could not have been better. Only slight criticism was that we would have liked longer at the top of the cable car but you can't have everything !!
