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 Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal or selected Tokyo hotels. 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. Your guide will assist you with directions for returning to your hotel when you arrive in Tokyo.

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.

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. Departing directly from Shinjuku allows you to spend more time at Mt Fuji. Please select
"Tour+Lunch+Shinjuku Transfer" (Code: F800KP) at checkout for this option.

The trips was excellent. Apart from not being able to get up to the 5th station at Mt Fuji, due to road closures, the whole day was an amazing experience. Right from the pickup at our hotel to our drop off at Tokyo Station I couldn't fault anything. The guide, Hiro, was very knowledgeable about Japanese history and tradition and kept us fully informed the whole day. If you are going in the winter months, be sure to take warm clothes as at the top of Mt Komatagake it was bitterly cold! But the view was worth it. It was a first for many things for us including the ride home on the Shinkansen! The traditional Japanese lunch was fabulous. All in all a very worthwhile trip.

Tour director was not that interested in those of us on the tour. You could have run a tape instead of employing a director.

Mount Fugi in mid-winter is well worth seeing, in spite of there being no cherry blossoms. The bullet train ride was a great experience.

My family and i completely and thoroughly enjoyed the trip around Mt Fuji. The guide, Nao, looked after us well, and saw to all our needs. We particularly enjoyed the view of the mountain from the lake, although it was very cold.
