  • Address: Shizuoka, Japan
As Japan's highest mountain, the legendary Mt Fuji stands 12,388 feet (3,776 meters) tall. Whether you hike all the way to the top or take it easy at the Fuji Visitor Center's observation deck, visiting this UNESCO World Heritage site is an unforgettable experience.

Travelers from around the world head to Hakone National Park to see the mountain, and over 1 million of them hike all the way to the top each year, generally between July and August when the weather is the mildest and snow is limited. With spectacular 360-degree views of Lake Ashi, the Hakone mountains and the Owakudani Valley, the trek is absolutely worth it.

But even if you're not looking to climb the holy mountain, there are still plenty of viewpoints and attractions easily accessible by bus. Travelers can head to the Fuji Visitor Center to visit a small museum and view exhibits covering the Fuji Five Lakes and Mt Fuji's cultural importance; grab a bite to eat; or head out to the observation deck to catch views onto the mountain. Further up at 7,545 feet (2,300 meters), Mt Fuji's 5th Station offers additional unobstructed views along with shrines and souvenir shops. Both locations also serve hikers preparing for their ascent.
