What You Can Expect
On your full-day trip from Tokyo you'll travel by coach to the Fuji visitor center to see cultural art dedicated to Fujisan. As you drive up to Mt Fuji's fifth station at 7,607 feet (2,305 meters) you'll be inspired by the beauty of the Japanese landscape. Lunch (if option is selected) is a traditional Japanese-style meal.
After lunch, you'll enjoy the crisp mountain air and Mt Fuji views while cruising Lake Ashi and riding the aerial cableway at Mount Komagatake overlooking Hakone National Park.
Your day trip to Mount Fuji concludes with a ride on the famous Shinkansen (Bullet train) super-express for the return journey to Tokyo.
At 12,388 feet (3,776 meters) Mount Fuji is Japan's highest mountain. Rarely, on clear days, Fujisan's perfectly shaped volcano slopes can be seen from Tokyo and Yokohama, but views 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.
It was amazing.It's high and view so beautiful.
But Time was so rush.
I really enjoyed this trip. Lovely comfortable bus for the 1hr 45 min run out to the Mount Fuji visitors centre for a quick comfort break and first photo opportunity of Fuji. We then drove up into the snow line for a another visit and photo opportunity, before coming down for a delicious lunch at a hotel with still more views.
After lunch we went to Mount Hakone (a slight change due to high winds). I think we lucked in here as once we'd ridden the cable car we could see steaming vents on the mountain side and also try the hot spring eggs - normal chicken eggs that are put into the sulphur rich vents to cook. Oh yeah, and turn black! I was brave enough to try one and it was just like a normal boiled egg, with a slight sulphur 'tang'.
Next it was down to Lake Ashi for a boat cruise, a chance to see some amazing local wood crafts, a quick refreshment break before boarding the bullet train back to Tokyo.
Brilliant, great value tour which I'd thoroughly recommend.
