Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Perfect for nature lovers who want to enjoy some quality time admiring snow-capped Mount Fuji and exploring the lava-formed caves at its base.
What You Can Expect
Then continue driving through stunning scenery en route to the fifth station where you will see magnificent views of Mt Fuji from different angles. On a clear day Mt Fuji’s perfect cone shape can be seen from as far away as Tokyo; however, this is usually in the colder months when peak visibility is in the early morning or late afternoon.
Enjoy a traditional Japanese lunch followed by a visit to the Aokigahara Forest, also known as the Sea of Trees. The forest lies at the base of Mt Fuji and is famous for its Ice and Wind Caves formed by flowing lava. Wander inside the impressive Narusawa Ice Cave, covered year-round by ice, and admire the beautiful ice formations.
Return to Tokyo where the tour concludes at Shinjuku, a vibrant shopping and entertainment precinct. Explore the area at your leisure before making your own way back to your hotel.
Went with 2 friends and had a great time especially exploring the caves. Our tour guide was also friendly and awesome convo. Note: wear water proof boots.
The highlight of this trip was the Aokigahara Forest where the cave is located. If you're lucky like my group was, no one else will have signed up for this tour and you'll get an awesome private guide from the Country Lake Systems tour group. Exploring the cave does require some physical ability so I would only recommend if you're able-bodied.
The only downfall of this tour is that it was delayed due to peak season traffic so we had to shorten some stops to accommodate our schedule. However, all in all I would recommend this package for those who want to visit the Mt. Fuji area without having to coordinate logistics (transportation to and from the area, excursions, etc.).
