What You Can Expect

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 you make your own way back to your hotel.

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.

Nana-san was a great tour guide. Very informative, friendly, and really made an effort to communicate Japanese history and culture. Seeing the Japanese countryside and Mt. Fuji was the best part of our stay in Japan riding the Bullet train was exciting also.

My wife , daughter and I were very pleased with this tour and would recommend it to anyone. We were very lucky with the weather which made it even more special. The tour guide was very helpful and informative.

Our tour leader was lovely. I will certainly recommend it to others :)

Our pick up point was a hotel very close to where we were staying, so this was very convenient and easier than making our way to the station. There was a delay of about 10 minutes but the company notified the hotel staff and we were informed. We found this very courteous and stress free.
Our tour guide was lovely. Abesan gave us the history and facts along the way in an informative but interesting way, with some humour and personal experiences included.
Our itinerary was changed due to weather conditions and she arranged this effortlessly. At the end of the day we all had to get back to our hotels separately and Abesan made sure each group was clear on how to do this.
We enjoyed the entire day and experience.

Very well organized. Easy to find at the bus station where we needed to go. We enjoyed seeing out of the way places on the way to Hakone and Kamagotake. Mayumi-san was a wonderful tour guide! Very knowledgable and engaging! Very patient and helpful.
I even saw her later on the train back checking to make sure every one got a seat on the crowded holiday train.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

I was nervous about doing this trip on my own, but everyone was really helpful and friendly. In the morning it was quite cloudy, so the views of Fuji were quite hazy, but by the time we went on the boat trip on the lake it was stunningly beautiful. It was a great day, and I would strongly recommend this trip. It was great to go on the bullet train as well

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Great day with an excellent tour guide.

Had a fantastic time loved it all. Guide was excellent.
Shame someone didn't tell Mt Fuji that we came all the way from Australia to see her but she hid behind the clouds, as she does.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Excellent tour and tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and informative. She spoke perfect English and can understand everything. She was also very helpful . Would recommend this tour company to anyone travelling to Japan.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

An ecellent day out, our guide Take was excelent. We had a fantastic day, even though we could not see Mt Fuji because of cloud cover it did not spoil the day out what so ever. The Japanese lunch was first class and well worth doing as well as the return trip on the bullet train. When we return to Japan we will probable do this same tour again it was that good!!
