Get out of the city and into nature as you visit the famous Mount Fuji and its top nearby attractions like Lake Ashi and Mount Komagatake on this 11.5-hour excursion from Tokyo. Along the way you’ll get a sense for amazing natural landscape in the immediate region just outside Tokyo’s biggest city.

Start your tour of Mount Fuji and environs in the morning with a pickup from select hotels in Tokyo and then proceed on by air-conditioned bus for a 2.5-hour ride to Mount Fuji, heading up to a height of 7,607 feet (2,305m) above sea level on the mountain. Upon arrival at Mt Fuji, enjoy the astounding views of the entire region and an informative museum that details the ecology, meteorology, culture and history of the mountain and the nearby Fuji Five Lakes. You’ll also have time during your stop to check out the second-floor observation deck, offering stunning vistas of the peak of this renowned mountain on clear days.

Continue to Mount Fuji’s 5th Station, which lies about halfway up the mountain, for more incredible views. Take 30 minutes to wander the site’s souvenir store and its torii gates and shrines, which help commemorate the mountain’s symbolic role as a transition between heaven and earth. Stop by a local restaurant to enjoy a Japanese-style lunch.

Head next to Lake Ashi, which lies in a crater formed by a massive volcanic eruption around 3,000 years ago. Take a short 15-minute cruise of this postcard-perfect body of water, admiring views of Mount Fuji, Mount Komagatake and other peaks in the distance.

Move back to the lakeshore after your cruise, where you’ll continue to the Mount Komagatake Ropeway, which will whisk you to the mountain’s peak. Climb ever-higher aboard this aerial tramway as you head to the summit, where you’ll then have 50 minutes to wander around. Explore the beautiful views as you explore the top of the peak, including great views of Mount Fuji, the Izu Peninsula, and Izu islands, among other features. Your tour concludes with a coach transfer back to the Tokyo area around 8:30pm.

Most of the day was spent on the bus in traffic. We couldn’t see Mt. Fuji due to heavy cloud cover, the same with the aerial tram. Cafeteria food wasn’t good.

Overall, a good tour. Our guide: Yukiko, was very good. I appreciated that she made the effort to explain things and give anecdotes in English.
I wish we had more time to explore the 5th station. We were lucky to see Mt. Fuji at this stop.
It was too cloudy to see Mt. Fuji at the other stops.

The tour guide, Ellie, was very entertaining and informative. The weather was nice so we had a clear view of Mt Fuji... too bad there wasn't any snow during the hot summer! Enjoyed the Japanese lunch too!

Tour was a great way to see Mt Fuji since it was far from Tokyo. We were blessed with a perfect day to see Mt Fuji from top to bottom. Tour was efficiently run; tour guide was informative, fun, helpful and very relational

We were picked up as planned from the hotel with no issue. Weather wasn't great so we headed straight to Mt. Fuji so we could see the mountain before the clouds came in. Our tour guide was really informative and good the whole day - and it was a long day! Lunch at the resort was pretty good - I got the vegetarian option, my friend didn't enjoy the meat option. The disappointment was with the title of the tour 'Including Lake Ashi Sightseeing cruise'. When I think of 'cruise' I think of a little tour around the lake not a 15 minute ferry ride from one side to the other to get on the cable car for the next activity. Again unfortunately the weather prevented us from looking outside the ferry to see the scenery which was no doubt lovely in the sunshine. If you do this tour it would be much better to add the bullet train option. We wished we had as it was a very quiet 2 hour drive back to Tokyo, only 6 of us were left on the bus by then. All in all not a bad introduction to Mt. Fuji - but the title is a bit misleading.

It was fascinating to see Japan's iconic Mount Fuji. The sail on Lake Ashi was enjoyable also.

Too much sitting on the bus 4 hrs, just one way for a chance to see the base of Mt. Fuji for 30 minutes, followed by a cheesy 20 min boat ride at some lake Lake Ashi was shut down due to the rain, then a 40 min stop to take a gondola up a mountain and finally a stopover at an odd amusement park for little kids for lunch.

If we could do it again, we'd buy a train ticket from Tokyo and then take a taxi up to Mt. Fuji. The winds are about 60mph at the base of the mountain and it rains often so be sure to bring a light waterproof jacket and pants -- an umbrella will not work.

I have been look after by an amazing tour guide, thank you Elly! The guide has been so nice, sweet, helpful and thanks to her i know much more about the japanese culture, she let us try to make an Origami. Love her!
The day is well organized, despite you'll see or you won't see the Fuji is gonna be a great day!
Mount Fuji is very shy we saw it only once!

More time in every place would be much better however it has been a great experience.

We booked this trip, but unfortunately due to bad weather we where unable to see Mt Fuji alot.. As the fog drifted in and covered it most of the time. we did manage to get a few photos. The place itself was really nice but busy. And we also missed out on the Lake Ashi cruise and Cable car because of the weather. Instead we where taken to an Aquarium and Museum. which was ok but a little disappointing. We blame noone but mother nature and her decision to turn on the bad weather for our day. Excellent bus driver and friendly tour guide made for a better trip.

What a marvellous tour!
Pick up from Shinjuku, Keiko Plaza Hotel.

Firstly had a lovely guide Yuki. She gave lots of interesting information about Mount Fuji and Japanese culture on the journey. Very friendly and personable.

A lot of the day is spent on a coach, as other reviewers noted, however unlike other comments this for me was an opportunity to see a rural Japan. Passing paddy fields, green mountains and residential areas was just part of the joy of the day.... plenty of photo opportunities on the bus inuding mount Fuji at s distance.

Mount Fuji itself was magnificent. We did only have 35 mins there however I stood on the observation tower, prayed at the shrine and got my souvenirs! Got lots of photos and enjoyed every second. The shrine in particular was very atmospheric. There was only a few of the many vistors seeming to chose to go there. here was cloud descending while there and I guess later in the day it would be cloud covered which was frustrating for other reviewers. However while I could imagine total cloud cover would be disappointing it is nature and not something the tour could ever possibly control.... you are high above sea level and nature cannot be tamed.

We then had lunch at the ninja resort for 45mins. Very pleasant buffet style. Tasty and lots to chose from.

Next was Lake Ashi..... pleasant 15 min cruise with sights including a shrine to a great dragon!

Finally we were unable to go on the cable cars due to wind.... again hardly the tour's fault.... mother nature again. Instead quickly went to the nearby Aquarium. I will admit I would have preferred the cable car and the enclosures sadly seemed very small..... probably this was the lower point of the day but was bucked up by having the chance to buy a Hakone wooden box. The wood carving of this area is stunning take a look at the shops nearby!

Final back to Shinjuku station by our bus. Very happy indeed!
