What You Can Expect

Mt. Fuji Day Trip Including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo

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.

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!

It was so easy to meet up at the bus station and head off to Mt. Fuji for the 2 hour ride. On the ride the tour guide gave us lots of information that we would never have known. The day was also beautiful, which topped it all of and the view from the top of the gondola was spectacular.

This tour was fantastic! Although a little rushed, it was a great way to visit Mt Fuji and Mt Hakone. Our tour guide was fantastic and very entertaining. I would highly recommend taking the lunch option with the tour. The food was amazing.
