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 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.

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

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.

Surprisingly pleasant day trip for our group of 4A3C !!! Tour guide-san Noriko-san is very familar with the trip and offer timing and little details like the Melody Lane as the tour bus head to the 5th Station of Mt. Fuji.

The tour guide Hiro-san was very efficient and reliable. He knows his craft well and he was very patient especially with an arrogant Caucasian tourist. He provoked him but Hiro-san was very humble and patient with him.

The local travel agency where he works in Tokyo should commend him. He is an asset to the company.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

A very enjoyable full-day trip outside Tokyo. It incorporated a bit of everything... from general mountainous country views, lakes, cable car ride, and a short lake cruise, the Shinkansen train ride back to Tokyo although as it was a relatively short trip with a couple of stops along the way, we did not get to experience high-speed..., and OF COURSE Mt. Zuji.

On the day we went, the weather was overcast as we stopped at a small village stop late morning for a drink stop, and the indications were that we would not get to see Mt. Fuji because of the clouds. This was further confirmed as our coach began the long slow climb up into the clouds. We wondered if we would see anything at all. Suddenly... we broke out of the clouds as if in a climbing aircraft... and all was revealed. It was a spectacular experience.
Once we reached out objective of Station 5 which I would guess is 75 or more up the side of the mountain, the view was breathtaking. On one side we had the snow peak of Mt. Zuji, and on te other side, looking down into what would have been the valleys way below... all we could see was a flat ocean of white cloud. It was spectacular and a rarely seen view. Our tour guide mentioned that she had been talking to another tour guide at Station 5 that day... a tour guide with 30 years experience, and that tour guide had indicated that in all her years of taking groups up Mt. Fuji, the view on this our lucky day was the most spectacular, and that she had never seen this before.

So we were very lucky a to even get to see Mt. Fuji at all, given the heavy cloud cover as we saw it from down in the valleys, and b having broken through the clouds, to experience the very unusual flat sea of clouds below us.
The final stop for the day was the cable-car ride up to the top of a mountain, which was also spectacular., albeit bitterly cold and windy this day. Intermittent fog also occasionally blocked our view of the village and lake below, but worth the effort

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Despite the weather, the tour was amazing, the views spectacular, and the guide extremely helpful and certainly knew her game . Would definitely recommend .
