What You Can Expect

Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and First-Class Bullet Train Day Trip from Tokyo

Mt Fuji

Depart from your Tokyo hotel in a private taxi and then climb aboard a luxurious, air-conditioned vehicle departing for Mt Fuji’s 5th Station. Admire the splendid scenery during the 1.5-hour drive and feel your excitement heighten as you ascend to 7,546 feet (2,300 meters) above sea level. 

Absorb sweeping vistas of the iconic peak from this incredible vantage point and explore your surroundings in search of sacred shrines and impressive torii gates. Purchase special souvenirs from the ubiquitous stalls and then return to your vehicle for the short and scenic journey to Lake Yamanaka. 

On arrival, take a seat and enjoy a European-inspired feast of gourmet dishes; as you dine, admire the gorgeous lakeside landscape. Sated, proceed to Sounzan Station and board the Hakone Ropeway to ascend to mind blowing heights. Relish the smooth ride to a staggering height of 13,120 feet (4,000 meters) and gaze down at Lake Ashi from your glass-floored gondola. 

Disembark the ropeway to stroll around the atmospheric Owakudani, a bubbling valley that undulates with volcanic activity, and sample a local delicacy of eggs blackened by the hot springs. Descend to sea level and climb aboard an amazing model pirate ship to enjoy a tranquil cruise of Lake Ashi, a beautiful body of water nestled in the caldera of Mt Hakone.    

After your enriching exploration of the surroundings, head to Odawara Statuon to board the renowned bullet train back to Tokyo. Luxuriate in the lavish facilities of the first class section and marvel at the high velocity of the train. 

On arrival in Tokyo, make your own way back to your hotel following your guide’s instructions.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2016

Guide was very good, very knowledgeable and her English was stellar. The Ropes tour gondolas was closed due to seismic and volcanic activity substituted was the Hakone Open Air Museum, a large outdoor sculpture exhibit. I was initially skeptical but it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable parts of the trip. Would definitely go for the premium tour as the bus was much nicer than the others we saw including a lav on the bus!. Mika was also very helpful making sure we exited the bullet train at the station closest to our accommodations.

Beautiful day, great views of mountain while heading towards it and also when we reached the 1663m observation no where near 4th or 5th Station - apparently didnt wish to lineup with other buses, excellent coach - comfortable and with WiFi, amazing restaurant with exquisite food and classic japanese view Mt Fuji and Cherry Blossoms, lake cruise was more like a lake crossing but the view were great.
NEGATIVES advertised and on confirmation voucher Hakone Ropeway which apparently does not form part of the tour anymore
My sister who did a cheaper version more people, standard bus through Sunrise same tour operator on the same day, got to go to 4th Station and did Ropeway in the area.
When I pay 3 times more, I expect more than a luxury coach.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2016

It was not as advertised. The Cable Ride was replaced with a Museum tour. No explanation was give. The guide was delightful and extremely entertaining and knowledgeable. Everything was very well organized. But that is what a tour is. I would be hesitant to sign up again because the description didn't match the itinerary.

No rope way tour, as tour went only to met Fuji first station, tour should have diverted to lake but was shown only from bus

Not anyone's fault but the weather prevented us from seeing the mountain it was in clouds. The advertised cable car ride was NOT included, instead a visit to a museum was substituted and the guide said it's been this way for a year Viator needs to update specs on trip and on the way back there was a traffic jam so we had to take the long way which was VERY windy and made my daughter car sick.
