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, or by meeting at the city’s Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. For those that select one of the optional transfer and lunch packages, your pickup location may be the Keio Plaza Hotel.

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. For those that selected the optional lunch upgrade, you’ll also have time to enjoy a Japanese-style lunch. Those that did not select this option can purchase food at their own expense.

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.

Finish your Mount Fuji area excursion back in Tokyo with a drop-off at Shinjuku or Ginza station that night (Codes: F880_, F880KP_, F880W).

For those not wanting to return to Tokyo, you have the option to end your tour at Odawara station, gateway to Kyoto and other cities connected by shinkansen (high-speed train) (Codes: F808, F808W).

A more direct transfer to Mt. Fuji is available, leaving from Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku. This pickup avoids the additional stop at Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal, leaving you more time at Mt Fuji. Please pick: "Tour+Lunch+Shinjuku Transfer" (Code: F880KP__) at the time of purchase.

Please note: Views of Mt Fuji are subject to the variability of the weather, with views generally better in the winter, during the early morning and in the late evening.

AMAZING---AMAZING--- AMAZING. MT. FUJI may not be the tallest mountain in the WORLD but it is STUNNING. From a distance while travelling on the coach it is STUNNING and when you arrive on the mountain,its a beauty to behold.If you are as lucky as we were when we visited,the view was crystal clear and the experience MONUMENTAL. Lake Ashi is absolutely STUNNING, and a must, as part of the trip. Add all this to the natural beauty of JAPAN, and the memories will stay with you FOREVER.

Ellie was a brilliant guide. Nothing too much trouble and would highly recommend her. Great way to see sights that would be difficult to reach independently.

Everything went smoothly with our Mt. Fuji tour yesterday. The staff at the bus terminal was very helpful and so with the tour guide. The driver was great. Lunch was good. Fortunately it was a clear day, we were able to see The whole of Mt. Fuji along the way and in all the places that we went.

Fantastic Tour! Very Good Value for Money. Our guide ITO-San was like having your very own Japanese Grandmother on for the ride.
Not only do you see Mt Fuji and Hakone up close but you also get brilliant insight of the daily life of the modern Japan. The lunch was authentic Japanese cuisine at it's best. One of the best things we did in Japan.

This was by far the highlight of our trip. A very emotional, cold, and beautiful experience.

We started our trip being picked up at the hotel we chose from the list they offer. Our tour guide's name was Yuki, she spoke english, and was very very entertaining with all the historical and custom facts of Japan. I suggest you open up google maps, look up the location of where you are staying and the WALKING distance of the hotels they offer, this will determine which is best for you and depending on the time of the year you visit we went in the cold month of December, but we are Floridians so everything to us is cold you will have some walking to do in the weather period you visit. The bus will leave you upon return Close to the Shinjuku station, again, most cell phone carriers WIFI works so you should be able to GPS it back to your desired location. I am only saying this because people actually complain about this and I do not find it a necessary thing to complain about. You are in a foreign city, learn to navigate it.

We visited Mt. Fuji up to 2,300 meters. They have a shop there with delicious butter steamed corn, cool little Mt Fuji chocolate souvenirs, and a bunch of other nick nacks you can purchase. There are decks to take amazing pictures from that oversee the mountain summit. I suggest you purchase a selfie stick. We were against them until we visited Japan. We were in Mt Fuji for about 45 minutes or so and then headed to a hotel for a delicious traditional hot lunch. This included rice, vegetable tempura, hot miso soup, and other vegetables. My lunch was vegetarian but my husbands was not and it included tuna and he says it was delicious.

After, you will go down beautiful Hakone get those cameras ready because MT FUJI OVERSEES THE WHOLE TOWN, this part for us was iconic. You will go down to the beautiful lake in Hakone, you'll be there for a few minutes or so. Take some pictures. and then head over to take the cable cart which will take you up the mountain adjacent to Mt. Fuji, another great opportunity for images. This mountain has a trail, a couple of shrines, and beautiful views of the surrounding area including the pacific ocean.

Overall this trip was iconic because it was a financial sacrifice for us, but it was also very very indulging, the people were very polite and very charming, the cities are very clean and very organized. I truly believe that this tour is a must-do for all who come to Japan.

The tour was amazing! Definitely recommend!! Aside from making two new friends who were great company as well, our tour guide, Take-san, was amazing. He was very knowledgable about the history of the places and provided sufficient information regarding the places. If you ever wanted to know something about the place, just ask him! I asked him the species of the birds in Lake Ashi and he said that he didn't know what they were. Later on when we got on the bus, he announced to everyone about the species of the birds and what they were, migratory or not etc. It was amazing to see him take that extra step to figure out information for us tourists! He also shared with us his experiences and cool tricks!

Aside from the company and tour guide, the view was amazing! Especially on Mt. Fuji. The weather on that day was surprisingly clear. I did check the weather forecast before booking my date which I highly recommend to do so as if it's cloudy, you might not get to see much at all though as the day got closer, I noticed some other dates that were once supposed to be sunny became cloudy. So it's definitely still a gamble. I was lucky to have the day I booked to stay sunny all the way. It was unusually clear that we could even see the Japanese Alps on the other side of Mt Fuji which Take-san said was unusual! Even to see the snow on the Japanese Alps! Hakone and Lake Ashi was great too. Weather was really really cold and I LOVED it!! It was amazing! Remember to bring gloves and keep warm! Might want to bring ear muffs too if you can't handle the cold!

Stuff I wish could be better :
- Slightly more time on Mt Fuji, prolly like 10 minutes more.
- A better lunch menu. The lunch we had was really average. I would not recommend anyone to eat it lol.

That is all! Will share a bunch of photos soon!
