Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and Bullet Train Day Trip from Tokyo

Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and Bullet Train Day Trip from Tokyo

After morning pickup at selected Tokyo hotels, Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku or Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal, relax as your deluxe coach cruises along a scenic 2.5-hour route to Mt Fuji Visitor Center. Learn about the history and geology of Japan’s highest mountain from your guide and the informational exhibits about the revered mountain. From the second floor observation deck, you can get great views of Mt Fuji on a clear day.

After seeing the Visitor Center, return to your coach and proceed to Mt Fuji’s 5th Station, located about halfway up the mountain at 7,545 feet (2,300m). Take in the shrines, torii gates and shops that sell souvenirs, along with views of Mt Fuji and the surrounding lakes (subject to weather conditions). Soak in the invigorating atmosphere of 5th Station; you might even spot some climbers preparing for their adventure. Then have time for lunch. You can choose the upgrade that includes a Japanese-style lunch, or have the option to buy your own meal.

After having a bite to eat, drive to nearby Lake Ashi, located in Hakone National Park. Step aboard your boat for a short cruise across the lake. Admire the spectacular scenery of pristine waters surrounded by Mt Komagatake, Mt Fuji and other mountains.

Disembark from the boat and head to the Mt Komagatake Ropeway, an aerial tram that takes you from the shores of Lake Ashi to the top of Mt Komagatake. Have time to walk around the mountain top and take in amazing views of Lake Ashi, the Owakudani volcanic valley and majestic Mt Fuji.

After visiting Hakone, transfer by coach to the evening bullet train (Shinkansen) for your return to Tokyo, where your guide will tell you how to get back to your hotel.

Pickup options:
  • Meet at Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal for your bus to Mt Fuji
  • Pickup from select Tokyo hotels with transfer to Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal for your bus to Mt Fuji
  • Discounted pickup option in Shinjuku at Keio Plaza Hotel 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 note: Views around Mt Fuji are always subject to weather conditions as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. Visibility tends to be better during the colder months, in the early morning and late evening.

A really fabulous day, can't recommend highly enough. It was our incredible guide Ichiro who made the day so outstanding - he kept us informed, on schedule, made everything seamless and took such good care of us even up to walking us to our exit at Tokyo station! The scenery was spectacular - we had great weather and a clear view of Mt Fuji, the cable car ride was thrilling and to top it all off we had our first ride on a Shinkansen - a total blast! Along with Ichiro our driver was also outstanding. We. Oiled never have seen so much of this beautiful part of the world on our own and all in one day. Thanks Ichiro!

Our tour guide Harry was very entertaining and informative, and made sure the group was taken care of. We were blessed to have a clear day to view Mt. Fuji in all its splendor. The lunch was excellent, and the shinkansen ride was impressive.

It was a great day out, sadly the weather was inclement however it was very well organised and the faccilities first class. Very good value for money and it was spaced nicely between the Mountain, Lake Ashi and the bullet train ride back downtown. Japanes efficiency in keeping to timetables has to be admired

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Excellent guide Harumi who was very knowledgable about Mount Fuji, Lake Ashi and the Hakone areas. Excellent organisation throughout, the lunch was lovely and authentic. This is a great tour for people looking to explore outside of Tokyo.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Highly recommend this tour. Pickup was on time and easy. Tour guide Ito was very knowledgeable and friendly, also at end of day she went the extra mile to make sure everyone got back to their hotels from the train station. Made it to the 5th station which was fantastic and even got good views of Mt Fuji when the clouds cleared. Unfortunately they do tend to overcrowd the gondola, and you could not see out of the window on the way up. I might also suggest the option of reserving sits on the bullet train, as after a full day some passengers found it difficult to stand without a sit on this very crowded train. However, overall an excellent tour - nine out of ten.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Great tour! We had the best tour guide which was chatty and funny, and gave us loads of info about everything we wanted to know.
I was especially thrilled by the fact that the vegetarian menu option was actually vegan. Thank you for that :

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This was one of my highlights during my trip to Tokyo. We had the funniest and most entertaining guide Harry who had lots of entertaining stories to tell us about the history of Japan and his great marriage life. I would definitely recommend people to book with Viator, they are very organized and the trip went very smoothly.

One word of advise, if anyone has enough time, I would recommend staying for a night at the town of Hakone. It has one of the most spectacular views and is very quiet and relaxed one thing i regret not trying.

All and all, this experience shouldn't be missed especially with Harry .
