Await pickup from Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower, a short walk from the west exit of Shinjuku station, at 7:40am. After boarding a climate-controlled coach, you’ll make the 2-hour journey to Fuji Motosuka, home to the revered Fuji Shibazakura festival.
The festival celebrates the annual appearance of 800,000 moss phlox blooms, which burst into life in a rainbow of pink and purple shades. Plus, the dramatic backdrop of Mt. Fuji means the festival provides an abundance of excellent photo opportunities.
After visiting the festival, enjoy a Japanese lunch overlooking Mt. Fuji. Then, proceed to Mt. Fuji 5th Station, a popular spot to take photographs of the majestic mountain. Spend free time purchasing Fuji-inspired souvenirs before continuing to Katsunuma to experience strawberry harvesting.
Pick and eat your fill of juicy strawberries before returning to your vehicle and relaxing during the journey back to Shinjuku.
