The snow-capped peak of cone-shaped Mount Fuji can be seen from Tokyo on a clear day. Regardless of the weather, it can be reached by bullet train or coach bus in a matter of hours. Day trips to Mt. Fuji allow visitors to explore one of Japan's newest UNESCO World Heritage designated sites and the incredible surrounding attractions while leaving time to explore other parts of the country.

Situated in Hakone and surrounded by Mount Hakone, a volcano, the scenic crater Lake Ashi (Ashinko) provides unparalleled views of Mt. Fuji. Pleasure boats and ferries traverse its famously blue waters. See both Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi on a bullet train day trip from Tokyo, complete with lunch on the iconic mountain and panoramic views of Hakone National Park. If you prefer the waterways to the railways, opt to see Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi on a sightseeing cruise from Tokyo.

If you plan to visit Japan in winter, visiting an onsen, or natural hot springs bath, should not be missed. One of the most incredible views of Mt. Fuji is from the outdoor Yamanakako Onsen, with steam rising around you as snow gently falls. Conclude your relaxing tour with a visit to your favorite retailer on a Mt. Fuji, Yamanakako Onsen experience and outlets shopping day trip from Tokyo.

For outdoor lovers and maybe supernaturalists, a trip to Mt. Fuji wouldn't be complete without exploring the spooky wooded interior of the Aokigahara Forest. Frighteningly dubbed Japan's Haunted Forest of Death, Aokigahara rests in Mt. Fuji's shadow and is one of the world's most popular suicide locations. A 1960s Japanese novel spurred the rash of suicides that have taken place since; the forest has a reputation for being hauntingly beautiful. Spot ghosts during a Mt. Fuji and Aokigahara Forest day trip from Tokyo.

If your visit to Japan doesn't coincide with Mt. Fuji's short climbing season (July-August), but you still crave a taste of what it's like on the mountain, check out a day trip to Mt. Fuji with a heritage walking tour from Tokyo. After driving up to the 5th station on Fuji-san, you'll have the opportunity to embark on an afternoon nature walk to several attractions, including Kawagushi Sengen Shrine and Lake Kawaguchi, both of which are UNESCO World Heritage-designated sites. You may not watch the sunrise over the summit, but you will leave with an appreciation for Mt. Fuji's natural and cultural heritage.
