Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Enjoy a hassle-free day of gorgeous views and iconic sights! With the upgrade, you get an authentic Japanese style lunch.
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.

Certainly, it is not easy to coordinate best weather (outdoor temperatures, precipitation, humidity, typhoons etc.) when traveling to Japan. Overall, late September and beginning of October was about right; with exception of a trip to Mt. Fuji. It seems that the choice is: seeing Japan or seeing Mt. Fuji. We went to Mt. Fuji and did not see Mt. Fuji. So, it was a waste of money. Also, the way it was organized was unfortunate. It would make much more sense to travel by the bullet train to the station close to the Mt. Fuji, had a bus there to take us to the mountain (let alone being able to see it) and return by the train. We wasted a lot of time in Tokyo traffic.

Thiis was a long trip to Mount Fuji where thee was nothing to see because of the fog. Not the fault of the tour operator, but still disappointing. Then a nice lake and ropeway up the mountain, but nothing special, we have that at home. Guide was knowledgeable but his English was so bad that I tuned out most of the time.

Weekend traffic resulted in huge delays and poor weather meant we could not see Mt Fuji, or much of the scenery. Itinerary was not completed.

The host Ellie (Rie) was absolutely wonderful. She was informative and entertaining. The downsides to this tour were how it felt a bit rushed. It's a lot to load and unload about 40 people to one place for a half hour, but time flew by. Still, we got to experience a lot in one day because of the tour. Another downside are the tourists you spend the day with. It's exciting to go into a day with an open mind, but if you have people complaining about the food or using chopsticks, or whatever else, it's a bummer. This isn't your country, so be open to experiencing Japan! Maybe you'll be luckier than we were with who is in your group. We also couldn't see Mt. Fuji since it was cloudy.The boat ride and trip up the mountainside were beautifully amazing. There are WAY many more pros than cons... I recommend this tour!

Everything about the tour met my expectations and beyond. The bus driver excellent. Tour guide a little difficult to understand but very accommodating and very concerned about our safety on and off of the bus. I would have liked more time at the first stop. Not enough time to shop for souveniers which were priced very reasonably. Also time to shop at the store at the foot of Mt Fugi. Lunch was excellent. Hot, filling and Japanese.One last comment. Bulletin train experience fantastic but it brings one back to public transportation in the midst of rush hour which was a nightmare. Maybe if mire time didn’t shopping would bring one back to city later is a suggestion I would definitely recommend the tour. No disappointments.

Overall, very well organised tour. Our guide Hiro-san was very charismatic, knowledgeable and helpful. Only criticism is more time at 5th station and less at the hot springs would be better- after all this is advertised as a mt fuji tour first and foremost.

Great trip but the guide didn't speak very good English. We only understood one out of every ten words! I guess we didn't need to know what he was talking about. The places we visited were great.

We loved our day trip to Mt Fuji, despite the rain it was a fantastic day with a wonderful guide,Meuku, and bus driver Gogo San. Everything was explained in detail, the bus was very comfortable and the tour was kept to right on schedule. We were disappointed with the weather but it turned out to be a great way to spend a rainy day.
