Itinerary

Day 1: Tokyo – Hakone (L, D)
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.

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 (depending on your selection at checkout)

Day 2: Hakone – Tokyo (B)
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 tour was awesome from start to end. Hakone is like Switzerland of Japan with lots of things to do and relax. We loved the Bullet Train and traditional Japanese resort in Hakone. Viator staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

An excellent tour, exceeded our expectations. We were lucky to see the mountain so clearly, which really made the trip special and memorable. The tour is very well organised and we had a very knowledgeable and amusing guide Mr Hera. The lunch on day 1 was very good in a lovely location. If you are not sure which hotel to go for, the Kowakien Ten-yu Hotel is exceptional - it is a brand new, h hotel and the rooms are exquisite, beautifully and comfortably furnished in traditional Japanese style, including everything you need to enjoy the onsen/spa experience even kimonos to wear in the dining room, if you wish!. The private spa bath on the balcony makes it very special. The staff greet you like celebrities. The included Japanese dinner is also an experience not to miss.

Day 2 is for you to do your own thing before taking the bullet train back, with all travel included in the daily pass provided as part of the package. We used the ticket to get to the train station too - be aware that it takes about an hour to get to the mainline station using this route but the taxis are very expensive! Be aware that the return train is for a set time, although you can use the same ticket on a later train no seat reservation but not an earlier one, so if you want to be back at a certain time, then request that when you book.

Tip: if possible, try to travel light for the trip rather than have to cart around your full luggage.

Superb to see Mount Fuji, one of those places that give you a special feeling. Great guide. Lovely onsen experience, although not luxury, but still very lovely. Bullet train is an experience in itself, almost like taking a flight.

Not worth the money. No time at Mt. Fuji visitor center, rushed thru lunch, barely made short cruise and cable car. Prince hotel nice but limited to fish for meals and could not use hot springs because of tattoo. Should have been a disclaimer. Hakone free pass was not well explained.

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!

This tour was really great! Our tour guide was super knowledgable and had very interesting stories. The only downside was that we had a VERY short time at each stop so it felt very rushed, which being on vacation you don't want to feel. The day we went was a very cloudy, windy, rainy day so we weren't able to see Mt. Fuji as we drove up. Luckily, we just happened to be outside when the clouds briefly cleared away and we were able to snap a few pics. This also happened while we were aboard the ropeway. It really and truly was breath-taking! The ryokan was quite nice and the Japanese baths were EXCELLENT. After a full day of rushing around in the cold and rain, soaking in the hot water was the perfect ending to the day. We chose the Hakone Hotel Kowakien EXCELLENT service! which had a family mart right next to it and the Yunessun close by, which was great for food and shopping. The Hakone free pass also allowed us to board any of the buses and explore Hakone to our heart's content! We were able to leave our extremely large luggages with the hotel bag check, which was great since we didn't have to lug it around. We were able to figure out our way to the bullet train and made it to the train just on time! It was a great trip and my only regret is that we didn't stay in Hakone another day. There was just so much to explore!
