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.

The Mt. Fuji, Ashi Lake and Bullet Train Day Trip Tour is the highlight of our Tokyo Adventure! The flow of the tour is systematic and the tour guide is very helpful and clear with the tour instructions. Will definitely come back to experience this kind of tour again. Thank you viator for making the tour fun, memorable and hassle-free.

This tour was run well with prompt timing and good organisation. TK was very helpful and knowledgeable. Although the initial coach ride was quite long, it seemed shorter as he pointed out key areas along the way. Clear weather meant that we got great views of Fuji from the fifth station, and although misty later, good views of the mountain from the top of the ropeway. The bullet train is a definite must on the way back as otherwise it is a very long day

This tour was well organized, the bus was clean and comfortable, the boat ride on Lake Ashi short and enjoyable. However, it rained or misted all day with times of heavy fog, so we were unable to see Fuji or the shrine at Mt. Kogamakake. However, riding the bullet train back to Tokyo, almost made up for the bad weather. Fast, clean and comfortable, the bullet train is a great way to travel!

If,like me when looking to book this trip thought it expensive,book it.It was full value for money through a local tour operator who pride themselves o punctuality,on behalf of Viatour.From email info to tickets to print at home,to details of hotel pick up points,all spot on.The trip itself lasts almost 12 hrs so its full on to do everything in the time.Our guide was excellent on our tour (Mon 22nd Oct).Sorry ive forgotten his name,but he was excellent with his English and his knowledge of this tour.We were picked up at The Courtyard Marriott Hotel (Ginza) in Tokyo and left on bus 3 to travel approximatley 2 30 mins.No toilet on board but he does tell you to go first before leaving.He gave plenty of info on route and explained that it had only just snowed last week on Mt Fuji so wasnt sure if we could get as high up as planned to the observation point.He rang in advance and was told that it was too dangerous underfoot for us but they were trying to clear the snow before we arrived.No joy,but we went to point no 4 and got great views on a clear day.Then it was lunch at The Highland Resort Hotel and Spa for an hour.Again,great views.We hadnt opted for lunch ourselves,but those that did said it was excellent.My wife and i tried the Italian resturant at the same hotel.There,s also a chinese resturant there too, so you have a choice.On to Lake Ashi were again all the boat tickets were bought in advance and given out on the bus,same with the cable car trip which again gave excellent panoramic views.Finishing off,our guide gave us our tickets to the Bullet train and you cant go wrong as the bus takes tiu to the front of the station and the guide takes you to the platform entry barriers and counts you in.This took 35 mins and included 2 stops,finishing up in Tokyo Station from wher you found your own way to your hotel.It was excellent and puts our trains to shame,so dont miss it.

i've been very lucky for the weather. perfect conditions to see the beautifull Fuji mountains. the tour was during a lovely warm and sunny Sunday, so there was a lot of traffic and it took more than two hours to arrive in the Fuji area. But this is standard. great guide, perfect organization of everything

We did not go to mt Fuji 5th station, which was the main attraction. We were 5 minutes away and was told that there was a two hour wait to get in the parking lot because of traffic. We were 5 minutes away from Mt Fuji, If there was a two hour traffic back up we should’ve felt the impact 5minutes away. We were suppose to get a 45 min lunch break, instead we were told we were running behind schedule so we had to eat fast. We were rushed to get on the boat ride on Lake Ashi and the cable car ride up the mountain. Our tour guide apologized for rushing us but I had mentally shut down after we didn’t go to the 4th or 5th station. Mt Fuji was the the only reason I went on this tour so I was very disappointed that we didn’t go. Save your money, research before you go and explore on your on.

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.
