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

Your day starts early with pickup by deluxe coach at either Keio Plaza Hotel or other select locations in Tokyo. Take in the scenery as you depart Tokyo for a 2.5-hour drive to Mt Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain.

Upon your arrival at the Visitor Center, learn about Mt Fuji's history and geology from your guide and browse informational exhibits in the center. Head up to the observation deck for sweeping views of Mt Fuji (on a clear day). Then proceed by coach to Mt Fuji’s 5th Station.

Located at 7,545 feet (2,300m) about halfway up the mountain, the 5th Station offers another vantage point for Mt Fuji and the surrounding lakes (subject to weather conditions). The 5th Station also features shrines, torii gates, souvenir shops, and perhaps a few climbers completing their preparations for their ascent.

Have time for lunch, enjoying a Japanese-style lunch if you have selected the lunch upgrade, or purchasing your own meal. Then drive to Lake Ashi, located nearby in Hakone National Park. Admire the pretty scenery as you take a short cruise across the lake, which is surrounded by mountains including Mt Fuji and Mt Komagatake.

Then journey to the top of Mt Komagatake on the Mt Komagatake Ropeway, an aerial tram that lifts off from the shores of the lake and takes you up Mt Komagatake in an enclosed cabin with 360-degree views. When you reach the summit, enjoy time to take in views over Lake Ashi, the Owakudani volcanic valley and Mt Fuji. You can also take a short stroll along one of the walking trails at the mountain top.

After visiting several parts of Hakone National Park, transfer by coach to the evening bullet train (Shinkansen) for your return to Tokyo Station. Your guide will assist you with directions for returning to your hotel when you arrive in Tokyo.
