What You Can Expect

Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

Get out of the city and into nature as you visit the famous Mount Fuji and its top nearby attractions like Lake Ashi and Mount Komagatake on this 11.5-hour excursion from Tokyo. Along the way you’ll get a sense for amazing natural landscape in the immediate region just outside Tokyo’s biggest city.

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 Transfer
A 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.

We were very happy with this tour. It was spectacular! We were able to see different vista points of Mount Fuji, and we were able to see the mountain clearly on most stops. At the one in which we did not due to common cloud cover there was a stunning view nonetheless. Nao, our guide, was excellent. She was knowledgeable and engaging. We never felt like a large, cumbersome group. It felt intimate and easy-going, from start to finish. This was one of the highlights of our vacation, and I heartily recommend this company to anyone wanting a break from the bustling cities of Japan. One note - we were very content to choose the option without lunch included, as there were a few other restaurant options from which to choose.

This was a very well organised tour with enough free time and organised activities to keep people happy. We were very lucky to get such fabulous views of Mount Fuji. And the cable car at Hakone was fab even if my hands were frozen in 3 seconds. The boat ride could have been slightly longer but was relaxing and peaceful all the same.

The tour was well organised from the bus pick up to the bus drop off. Lunch was provided which was delicious and the best part of it was our guide who was very entertaining and she really knew her history. Bonus her English was also good.

This tour was the best part of our honeymoon. We were very hesitant to take this tour because we checked the weather forecast and it was supposed to rain. But the guardians of Mt. Fuji wanted us to have a wonderful experience. Mt. Fuji was picture perfect. The sky was clear and and since it snowed for 3 consecutive days, Mt Fuji had a snow cap that looked mesmerizing. If given the chance, i will definitely take this tour again.
