What To Expect

Your day starts early with pickup by deluxe coach at select hotels and locations in Tokyo. Take in the scenery as you depart Tokyo for a 2.5-hour drive to Mt Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain.
Proceed by coach to Mt Fuji’s 5th Station that is located at 7,545 feet (2,300m) about halfway up the mountain and offers another vantage point for Mt Fuji and the surrounding lakes (subject to weather conditions). The 5th Station also features shrines, torii gates, souvenir shops, and perhaps a few climbers completing their preparations for their ascent.
Then have time to enjoy Japanese-style lunch (if you select the "+ Lunch" option at checkout). Otherwise, you have the option to buy your own meal. Then drive to Lake Ashi, located nearby in Hakone National Park. Admire the pretty scenery as you take a short cruise across the lake, which is surrounded by mountains including Mt Fuji and Mt Komagatake.
Then journey to the top of Mt Komagatake on the Mt Komagatake Ropeway, an aerial tram that lifts off from the shores of the lake and takes you up Mt Komagatake in an enclosed cabin with 360-degree views. When you reach the summit, enjoy time to take in views over Lake Ashi and Mt Fuji. You can also take a short stroll along one of the walking trails at the mountain top.
After visiting Mt Komagatake, transfer by coach to the evening bullet train (Shinkansen) for your return to Tokyo Station.

Weather was great and Fuji was visible the whole day! Be on the 1st batch in the cable car to climb up Mt. Komagatake so you can still hike around. Time is limited.

Saw nothing of mount Fuji. Took us to first station and had a massive headache from Hiroshi the guide who constantly repeated the rule book on the mechanics of lining up to the precision of arrival and departure times. He showed a real talent for this and added very little else to the experience.
He went on ad naseum on the describing the poor lunch on offer which was to follow. He seemed to rather enjoy all this. But we were trapped and had nowhere to run. We had 20 minites of this buffet lunch description . He was repeating all this possibly to torture us. I mean not only was this tour so much of a waste of a day but I am certain he was sent to “torture”. We were treated like school kids on a day out of school. I would have endured all this but frankly Lake Ashi was also a waste of time and quite surrealisitc Saw nothing of Mount Fuji. Took us to the first station and could see nothing of Mount Fuji. Never got to level 4 as was offered in the tour and guide Hiroshi the guide made it worse. Wish there had been real content but this tour failed to deliver on the experience. The ropeway was a fizzle and this place was freezing and an underwhelming experience. This was the type of tour which ticked off all the boxes of mass market tour group management. Coach loads all heading together from the same company. Looked exciting before booking but a nightmare once begun. I felt like I was in a prison and wanting out throughout the day. I was relieved to get back on the bullet train back to Tokyo.

It was a beautiful tour and a total unexpected gem. The views were gorgeous and the photos were beautiful. We went with Yabe-San and he was a delight. He made the tour that much more enjoyable. Loved that we were able to see beautiful parts of Hakone. If you’re looking for a one day excursion that’s both beautiful and efficient. This is it. We totally recommend it !

Who knew that a terrible rain the day before would help clear the sky for a perfect, sunny view of Mt. Fuji the following day?! Our tour day started off wonderfully. Check-in was easy with time to spare. There were quite a few English-speakers, and the company made a wonderful effort to put all of us on the same coach bus for the day. Marie was our guide -- she was SUBERB! She is HILARIOUS and made the entire trip so well worth it. While on the road, Marie provided us with Japanese culture overview, some wonderful educational tips, and most of all, she was so very nice and approachable. We went during the week, so traffic was good and we arrived at Mt. Fuji within 1.5 hours. Since it rained the day before, we were only able to get to the 1st Station, but still had a beautiful snow-capped view at hand. We then stopped for lunch, followed by an absolutely pleasurable boat ride on Lake Ashi to the Mt. Komegatake Ropeway, where we went up Mt. Komegatake for breathtaking views of Lake Ashe, mountains that went on forever, the Pacific Ocean in the distance, a shrine at the top, and the most wonderful view of Mt. Fuji. We then boarded the bus and headed over to the train station to take the bullet train back to the Tokyo area - we even got to catch some of the first cherry blossoms of the season! From beginning to end, it was a perfect day. Thank you, Marie and Team, for such a memorable trip!

Great views of Fuji from different sites. We were fortunate that the visibility was perfect, but I can imagine this would be an issue on certain days.

It was our first time to this part of the world and we have left for home thinking we want to come again. The journey to Mt. Fuji, Lake Ashi and Bullet Train all went on without the slightest hitch. I guess with years of experience the organizer took care of every detail so that passengers would feel comfortable and thankful for a very smooth journey and not bored or short changed. Everything went on like clock work with no delays. Our day to Mt. Fuji was made more memorable with the almost perfect weather. From afar we could already see Mt. Fuji and although we only managed to get to the first station it was still good enough. After this came the lake ride by boat. The scenery was just great and beautiful. By evening we arrived at the train station in Odomaro, given the tickets and off we went heading for Tokyo on the bullet train. Would we do it again? Of course!!
