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.
This tour was amazing!
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!
It was a great tour, the guide is very helpful and knowledgeable. Everything went well logistically and time wise. We had a wonderful time in Mt. Fuji and specially in Hakone. Very interesting place.
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!
