What To Expect

Your day starts early with pickup by deluxe coach at select hotels and locations in Tokyo. Take in the scenery as you depart Tokyo for a 2.5-hour drive to Mt Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain.

Proceed by coach to Mt Fuji’s 5th Station that is located at 7,545 feet (2,300m) about halfway up the mountain and offers another vantage point for Mt Fuji and the surrounding lakes (subject to weather conditions). The 5th Station also features shrines, torii gates, souvenir shops, and perhaps a few climbers completing their preparations for their ascent.

Then have time to enjoy Japanese-style lunch (if you select the "+ Lunch" option at checkout). Otherwise, you have the option to buy your own meal. Then drive to Lake Ashi, located nearby in Hakone National Park. Admire the pretty scenery as you take a short cruise across the lake, which is surrounded by mountains including Mt Fuji and Mt Komagatake.

Then journey to the top of Mt Komagatake on the Mt Komagatake Ropeway, an aerial tram that lifts off from the shores of the lake and takes you up Mt Komagatake in an enclosed cabin with 360-degree views. When you reach the summit, enjoy time to take in views over Lake Ashi and Mt Fuji. You can also take a short stroll along one of the walking trails at the mountain top.

After visiting Mt Komagatake, transfer by coach to the evening bullet train (Shinkansen) for your return to Tokyo Station.

Traveller Tips


It's very windy when you are on the 5th station so take a jacket!
This tour can be a bit rushed due to how much is being done in the one day, so if you really want to spend a bit more time at each place it might require a 2 day tour.
If you have mobility issues better to team up with another couple and share the cost of a taxi, though taxis in a Japan are expensive, but overall fantastic day

Lisa_B, Feb 2023
Unfortunately, being an outdoor trip, you run the risk of bad weather. The clouds and the rain and mist prevented us from seeing Mt Fugi from any angle. No visibility from the Gondola ride either. Lake Ashi cruise was pretty good. Long time in a bus for very little payoff. The tour guide was knowledgeable but talked way too much during the bus ride.
Enjoy the beautiful nature of Japan 🤩
Lasse_C, Feb 2023
We gad a great trip! Our guide was very sweet, and took very good care of us. The trip is very diverse and we got to see everything from beautiful mountains to the lake. Recommendable if you want to see a lot. The trip started at 8:25 AM, and ended in Tokyo at around 6 PM.

Fantastic day tour
Denny_B, Jan 2023
We had a wonderful day. The tour guide, Hiro was really good. We got to see many spots. Unfortunately, we could only go to the 1st base station in Mount Fuji due to the weather. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to spent a day visiting the important locations around among Fuji.
Day trip to Mt. Fuji and the rest
Elisa_G, Jan 2023
Mt. Fuji is expectacular. Mt. Hakone is the same with the spring. Lake Ashi, the view is superb. And the exciting one is the bullet train. It’s so fast.
Very worthwhile and a full day of Japan’s beauty
Connie_B, Jan 2023
Our tour guide, the boat cruise and Hakone Ropeway were highlights. Our clear weather was a huge plus that day
Excellent tour to Mount Fuji

martha_m, Jan 2023
This was a great day trip. Our guide, Mr. Shin was wonderful. It’s a full day, and the lunch was amazing. Mr. Shin took great care of us, told us many interesting things about the area and Japan. The bullet train back was great.
Excellent
Corey_M, Jan 2023
Great tour around some lovely scenic places everyone must see when in Japan. Marie was an attentive, funny and enjoyable tour guide who put in huge effort throughout the day, and took extra time to help people with travel requirements. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone seeking to visit Mt Fuji and Hakone.

Alanna_H, Jan 2023
Sue was an excellent tour guide! She gave great facts along the way and was entertaining. I only wish we could have seen more of the mountain, but that was Mother Nature's fault, not the tour.
Bad weather - don’t go
Esther_N, Jan 2023
We went on the tour on a cloudy day. The company had not notified us of problems due to weather, so we didn’t cancel the tour. We should definitely had done that, sadly. This is a very expensive tour and we basically saw nothing. No views of Mt Fuji or Hakone. No views in the cable car at all. Only little views in the extremely short lake cruise. We unfortunately spent the day either in the bus or outside in the cold fog. It was in no way worth the money. We understand that the company don’t control the weather, but it is very disappointing that the company does not offer a refund or rescheduling, as they of course know what the day is going to be like with their knowledge and experience of the area. It seems like a rip off, not allowing their costumers to refund/reschedule… extremely disappointing, wouldn’t recommend if there’s any risk of bad weather. The only plus was the bullet train, which took us quickly back to Tokyo, which was desirable after a bad day.

From start to finish our tour was brilliant, really well organised and our guide Edo was a pleasure to be around. We returned via bullet train to Tokyo and Edo showed us who were staying in Shinjuku what train to catch - she was just brilliant - thank you Edo

It was a good trip and was well organised. Our guide Take was excellent, was very informative as well as being very friendly. The only down side of the day was the lunch. It was not that tasty and I would recommend that you investigate an alternative.

The tour guide was very friendly and accommodating. Very knowledgeable and informative of the sites we visited. She made sure all the tourists were attended to. The tour bus driver too was very friendly and gave us a smooth ride from start to finish.

Well worth it!
Randy_M, Dec 2022
Amazing views of Mt Fui the day we went. We were able to go to the 4th station (snow and ice covered roads higher). The view from this station isn’t great so our guide Take took us to a few more stops where we could see better. The short lake cruise was also very nice and the views atop the doorway were spectacular. Also met some great folks along the way!
