What You Can Expect

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

Cleanse your body and soul at the onsen

Enjoy a visit to the majestic Mount Fuji along with a chance to explore some its best nearby attractions during this 12-hour daytrip from Tokyo. In addition to exploring the beautiful views from up high on this famous peak, you’ll also get a chance to soak in a traditional Japanese hot spring resort and do some shopping at a premium outlet mall.

Start your Mount Fuji excursion in the morning at the Keio Plaza Hotel’s South Wing on the 3rd Floor in front of the World Clock. Continue by coach bus for a 60 mile (100km) ride to the mountain’s famous 5th station. As you take a few photos and admire the stunning views, listen as your guide details the mountain’s fascinating history, including its role in many famous poems and paintings. You’ll also hear about the more than 200,000 climbers that attempt to scale Mount Fuji’s 12,389-foot (3,776m) peak each year, beginning their ascent from the 5th station. Make sure to bring a coat for your visit, as the high altitudes can often be colder.

Continue next to a nearby restaurant, where those who have selected the lunch option will enjoy Japanese meal served on a plate made from stone collected on Mount Fuji. Those who have not selected the lunch option are free to explore the nearby restaurants and shops at their leisure.

Proceed next after lunch to the village of Yamanakako, which sits beside the shore of a picturesque lake of the same name. In Yamanakako head to Beni Fuji no Yu, a hot springs (onsen) resort where you can relax in one of the site’s outdoor pools, surrounded by lush gardens and views of Mount Fuji. The resort also offers saunas, steam rooms and waterfall showers as well.

Finish your Mount Fuji experience with 2 hours for shopping at Gotemba Premium Outlets. Offering 210 retail shops from brands including Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, and Ray-Ban, you’re sure to find a few items of interest. At the conclusion of your trip, head back by coach to the Shinjuku district of Tokyo.

It was definitely worth it. What sucked though was that it started raining and snowing so it was too dangerous for us to go farther than the first stop at Mt. Fuji and the Onsen experience just felt too short, but at the same time well worth it BECAUSE of all the rain and snow happening. The staff were very well prepared and explained everything in detail, even in a situation should we be left behind by the bus. Amazing trip and fun tour.

We really enjoyed our tour guide who spoke very good english and told us a lot about Japan while we were on the bus. We didn't get up to fifth station but that's ok and it was clear that there may be issues reaching it in the tour information. We did get some beautiful views of mt fuji.

The staff were friendly, hospitable and accommodating. Unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to see Mt. Fuji because when we were at the 5th Station, heavy rain and gusty wind welcome us! We enjoyed the Onsen and Gotemba Outlet.

Fantastic trip!! Visiting mount Fuji was amazing. We didn't get much time there 30 mins but it was just enough to wonder around and visit the shrine at 5th station. We didn't do the Onsen as were not keen on getting naked. However, we were able to do a massage which was fab!!
Lunch was not the Japanese BBQ that is advertised in listing which was annoying as we were looking forward to it. It was seafood which we don't eat so ended up with a veg option which was OK but not quite the BBQ we were expecting.
Shopping was excellent...bit of a rush around but was nice to end the day with a few bargains!
