What You Can Expect
Start your tour of Mount Fuji and environs in the morning with a pickup from select hotels in Tokyo, or by meeting at the city’s Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. For those that select one of the optional transfer and lunch packages, your pickup location may be the Keio Plaza Hotel.
Proceed on by air-conditioned bus for a 2.5-hour ride to Mount Fuji, heading up to a height of 7,607 feet (2,305m) above sea level on the mountain. Your first stop is the Mount Fuji Visitor Center, offering astounding views of the entire region and an informative museum that details the ecology, meteorology, culture and history of the mountain and the nearby Fuji Five Lakes. You’ll also have time during your stop to check out the second-floor observation deck, offering stunning vistas of the peak of this renowned mountain on clear days.
Continue to Mount Fuji’s 5th Station, which lies about halfway up the mountain, for more incredible views. Take 30 minutes to wander the site’s souvenir store and its torii gates and shrines, which help commemorate the mountain’s symbolic role as a transition between heaven and earth. For those that selected the optional lunch upgrade, you’ll also have time to enjoy a Japanese-style lunch. Those that did not select this option can purchase food at their own expense.
Head next to Lake Ashi, which lies in a crater formed by a massive volcanic eruption around 3,000 years ago. Take a short 15-minute cruise of this postcard-perfect body of water, admiring views of Mount Fuji, Mount Komagatake and other peaks in the distance.
Move back to the lakeshore after your cruise, where you’ll continue to the Mount Komagatake Ropeway, which will whisk you to the mountain’s peak. Climb ever-higher aboard this aerial tramway as you head to the summit, where you’ll then have 50 minutes to wander around. Explore the beautiful views as you explore the top of the peak, including great views of Mount Fuji, the Izu Peninsula, and Izu islands, among other features.
Finish your Mount Fuji area excursion back in Tokyo with a drop-off at Shinjuku or Ginza station that night.
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 (high-speed train).
Shinjuku TransferA more direct transfer to Mt. Fuji is available, leaving from Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku. This pickup avoids the additional stop at Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal, leaving you more time at Mt Fuji. Please pick: "Tour+Lunch+Shinjuku Transfer" (Code: F880KP__) at the time of purchase.
Please note: Views of Mt Fuji are subject to the variabilities of the weather, with views generally better in the winter, during the early morning and in the late evening.
This day was great! We had perfect views of Mt. Fuji from every stop, and the stops were spaced out very nicely so we didn't feel stuck on the bus. Going up to the top of Hakone was my favorite, as we had time to hike around and had great views of Fuji from up there. Take this trip for sure!
The guide was wonderful.
It was an excellent experience. The tour guide, Hiro, was very knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and loving-fun person. Our lunch was so yummy. Will absolutely book with Viator in the future. Very, very happy.
1. The trip was fabulous.
2. Having just booked some trips in China, i assumed Wrongly that there would be unnecessary stops at Pearl shops and Silk factories. But the Tour guide took us to ONLY the three spots mentioned in the brochure. Thus, we had ample time to admire the landscape and take some good photos.
3. The cruise was good, the boat was Not overly crowded and there was enough space on the deck.
4. Our guide was extremely cooperative. She was also knowledgeable.
5. We were very very very happy to see that a Vegetarian lunch had been cooked for us, at our request.
6. There is absiloutely no Hurry Hurry , it was quite moderately paced, even with two small kids, we did not face any problem
Nana San was a great tour guide. Lot of stories. At the end of the tour, she even gave us directions and tips....
Beautiful panorama of mount Fuji and Lake Ashi, and also the great traditional Japanese lunch.
very good tour, beautiful nature.
The tour was a lot of fun. Our tour guide was very informative and amusing. The food at the stop was above and beyond. I was expecting a bento, not a hot meal.
The trip up to level 4 on Fuji and hakone was unexpected and wonderful!!
Perfect weather!!!!!!!!!! The day before very cloudy and rain, but on April 15 blue sky, sunny day until lunch. Lake Ashi was ..... ok..... not absolutly a must have but nice and ok. Perhaps a little better english-knowing by the leader would be better.
The tour was great, except for the weather. As it was foggy and wet, which meant that it snowed on Mt Fuli. We did make it to stage 4 station. As it was to foggy the lake Ashi didn't happen but the alternative to me was great. It was a visit to an Art Gallery showing in Japanese artiste.
