Itinerary

Day 1: Tokyo – Hakone (L) (D — if upgrade selected)
Your 2-day tour begins with pickup from selected hotels before departing Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal by comfortable coach. Relax during the 2-hour trip to Mt Fuji, Japan's highest mountain, which provides a breathtaking backdrop as its iconic peak looms closer.
Upon reaching the mountain, stop by the Fuji visitor center for approx. 20 minutes to learn about current weather conditions as well as the history, formation and ecology of beloved ‘Fujisan’ through exhibits and films. The second-floor observatory deck provides spectacular close-up views.
Prepare to be wowed as your coach heads uphill to Mt Fuji 5th Station, climbing 7,546 feet (2,300 meters) above sea level. On a clear day, look up the mountain slopes and take in its surrounding lakes; you’ll feel almost close enough to reach out and touch the summit. Torii gates, shrines and souvenir shops decorate this station, known as the border between the heavens and the earth.


Enjoy a Japanese-style lunch with a set meal before continuing on to Lake Ashi for a 15-minute boat cruise from Kojiri to Hakone.
Disembark here to ride the Hakone Komagatake Ropeway for 50 minutes to the mountain peak, situated at an elevation of 4,452 feet (1,357 meters). You’ll have superb views over Hakone National Park before making your descent with your guide.
Stay the night in Hakone, famous for its hot springs (known as onsen) and natural beauty, with a choice of two accommodation options. Upgrade for a Japanese-style room that includes dinner and breakfast the following morning.
Overnight: Hakone Hotel Kowakien or Yunohana Onsen Hotel in Hakone
Day 2: Hakone – Tokyo (B — if upgrade selected)
After checking out of your hotel, you have the entire day free to explore Hakone at your leisure, with a provided Hakone Free Pass. This one-day pass lets you board designated transportation in Hakone, including the Hakone Tozan bus, train, cable car, Hakone Ropeway, Hakone sightseeing ship, Numazu Tozan Tokai bus and Odakyu express bus. With this unlimited access, you don’t need a guide to accompany you to top destinations in the area.
In the early evening, make your own way to Odawara Station by local bus or train and return to Tokyo with a reserved seat aboard the Kodama Shinkansen bullet train, arriving at Tokyo Station in just 40 minutes.

This trip totally exceeded my expectations. The tour guide was so nice and knowledgeable, and she told us a lot of factoids about Japan and the Japanese culture on our way to Mt Fuji. Then the lunch was incredible! I was expecting a measly sandwich or something like that, but we were treated to a multicourse traditional Japanese meal in a most beautiful setting! The only two negative things I have to say about this tour are foggy weather that prevented us from seeing Mt Fuji nothing anyone could control, and feeling rushed all the time but that's typical of a tour. I highly recommend this tour!

The 1st day was spent touring around Mt Fuji and parts of Hakone with a guide. The 2nd day was spent on my own with an all-day pass to roam around Hakone. I stayed at Yunohana Prince Hotel with dinner and breakfast. Great food, service, and hot spring. Room was dated but clean. Pricy but luxurious

I loved this tour. The guide and the company is well organised. Managed to see mount fuji just for 5 minutes because of the weather. But i won't get that chance if I didn't book this tour. Nice timing too. If you are focusing on Onsen spa then book Hakone Kowaki-en Hotel. This is very near to the bus and train stations too. If you booked Price hotel you might be lucky enough to see the mount fuji from your garden.

Our family of 3 thoroughly enjoyed this 2 day trip. In fact for me the overnight stay at the Princes hotel in Hakone was the highlight. We opted for the Japanese experience and really enjoyed having a traditional style room and the banquet in the evening was fantastic. This option also meant you had a Japanese breakfast which is something quite unique. My husband also said that the outdoor onsen was fabulous.
As for day 1 with the guide, we had a good day. Luckily this tour includes a trip to the 5th Station otherwise we wouldn't have seen the top of Mt Fuji for the whole rest of the day due to clouds.
The second day you are left to your own arrangements. We decided to make the most of the hotel and checked out at 11am which still left us plenty of time to do the Hakone Cable Car the Ropeway is done on day 1 and then the Romance Car - Heritage Train down to Hakone town centre. We then had a late lunch in the town centre and left with enough time to get to Odawara by 1742 for the prebooked train back to Tokyo. Would highly reccommend.

I loved the experience! We got to try the hot spring and the Japanese hotel style extra cost, and it was so worth it! The tour guide was very organized, precise with time, and group wasn't overly large. With the price, lunch, dinner and breakfast were included, as well as the extra tickets for the free day. We got to experience the quieter side of Japan and got to see Mt. Fuji, even though it was only from the 1st station!

A wonderful trip - well organized. All went to plan and we enjoyed it fully. Only sad thing was that we could not see much of Mount Fuji and could not go up. Well recommended trip. Thanks

We loved our tour of Mount Fuji and Hakone. Very well organized and our tour guide Yasue was funny and informative. Only wish we could've had more time at the 5th station. Highly recommend. We had our 4 children with us and even enjoyed the hot springs at our hotel!! Great time!
