What You Can Expect

Mt Fuji, Yamanakako Onsen Experience and Outlets Shopping Day Trip From Tokyo

Cleanse your body and soul at the onsen

Start your day when your guide picks you up from your hotel for a 9am departure on a comfortable coach to Mt Fuji. You’ll travel 60 miles (100 km) to 5th station, a viewing area on the slopes of Mt Fuji.

Check out the incredible views from observation points around the area. As you stroll and snap photos, your expert guide will share stories of the revered mountain, which has inspired many poems, paintings and pilgrims over the centuries. More than 200,000 climbers each year begin their ascent from 5th station to the mountaintop, Japan’s highest peak at 12,389 feet (3,776 meters). As it can be chilly due to the elevation, be sure to bring a jacket.

Warm up at a nearby restaurant where you'll enjoy a barbecue lunch served on a plate made of stone from Mt Fuji’s slopes! After lunch, you’ll return to the base of the mountain where Lake Yamanakako glistens next to the village of Yamanakako. Here you’ll take a mini-retreat at the onsen at Beni Fuji no Yu. Relax in the outdoor hot pools set among lovely gardens with excellent views of the Mt Fuji. You can also explore the saunas, steam rooms, and waterfall showers on the grounds.

After refreshing yourself at the onsen, head to the nearby Gotemba Premium Outlets and enjoy 2 hours of shopping. With 210 shops and international brands like Dior, Ray-Ban and Yves Saint Laurent, you’ll have plenty of options for your browsing pleasure. Have time to stroll around the tasteful shopping center and catch yet another glimpse of Mt Fuji in the distance. At the end of the day, your coach will return you to the Shinjuku district of Tokyo.

Great tour, informative guide but didn't get to see mount fuji as it was very cloudy; very disappointing. BBQ lunch was great and the Onsen was an amazing first time experience that everyone should try at least once.
