What You Can Expect

Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and Bullet Train Day Trip from Tokyo

Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and Bullet Train Day Trip from Tokyo

Your day starts early with pickup by deluxe coach at either Keio Plaza Hotel or other select 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.

Have time for lunch, enjoying a Japanese-style lunch if you have selected the lunch upgrade, or purchasing 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.

The tour was great and I would highly recommend as it was nice to have an English speaking guide that was able to provide historical and current information about Japan and the sites that we visited. One of the issues I had was the weather but of course, this was no fault of the tour company. We were able to see the summit from a distance, but it is what it is. Another issue was the cable car ride up the mountain. Everyone is jam packed into one of these cars and it becomes extremely hot. If you were unfortunately to be placed in the middle, you will not have any views either.

We really enjoyed our trip. Our guide Naoko was very pleasant, informative and entertaining. She made everything run smoothly. We got to see Fuji and we would definitely recommend this trip.

The food was also good and the coach was comfortable. It was also really easy to find the pick up point.

The tour was great, but the weather was really bad. Imagine being up Mt Fuji then in a cable car, and on a boat whilst a typhoon was happening. Things were getting cancelled all around us but that didn't stop our guide. She just found other options. Didn't get to see Mt Fuji at all, but the strange lunch in the amusement park was interesting as the rides looked amazing, but due to said typhoon they were all closed. The bullet train back to Tokyo was brilliant and our tour guide Marie was very entertaining. A very strange experience indeed. Unforgetable ...

Our Full Day tour was led by a very good English speaking fellow. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the bus terminal. The ride was smooth and the driver was good at his job. We had about 25 minutes at the fifth station for souvenir shopping. Next stop was the authentic Japanese lunch, lake cruise and cable car ride. All provided spectacular photo opportunities. Last stop was the Bullet Train which was a bucket list dream come true. The train dropped us off at the station where we took the monorail to Odaiba Island which topped off our day.

Our tour guide Ellie was informative and so sweet! We really enjoyed her commentary, and she managed to make the time on the bus go by faster. Even though the weather wasn't great the day we went, the trip to Mount Fuji and Lake Ashi were still must sees. The traditional Japanese lunch was also very good, with a pretty big portion size. The venue for lunch was picturesque. It was also really nice to have the bullet train back to Tokyo after the day was over - such a quick way to get back after a long day exploring.

This trip was great, but mainly, we can not speak highly enough of our AWESOME tour guide, Ichirro. He was attentive, organized, incredibly thoughtful, and just really fun to be around, and truly made the tour a wonderful experience. Thank you so much, Ichirro!!

The trip was awesome. We are lucky to have fully English speaking and well-organised tour to Mount fuji and Lake Ashi. Everything was superb on-time and the bullet train was superb cool and fast too. It is best to visit in winter time for clear view of Mount Fuji.

Very well organised trip, I would not hesitate to use again.
The only thing to spoil the day was the weather, and that's know one fault. So did not see Mt Fuji at all :
