Why Travelers Choose This Tour

From the 5th station post office you can send postcards to your friends and family postmarked from one of Japan's most iconic locales. Look for the shop with the clever Mt. Fuji-shaped cake, complete with a dusting of powdered sugar snow.
Enjoy a visit to the majestic Mt. Fuji along with a chance to explore some its best nearby attractions during this 12-hour day trip from Tokyo. In addition to exploring the beautiful views from up high on this famous peak, you’ll also get a chance to soak in a traditional Japanese hot spring resort and do some shopping at a premium outlet mall.

Meet your gourp at the Keio Plaza Hotel (in Shinjuku, Tokyo) and continue by coach bus for a 60-mile (100-km) ride to the mountain’s famous 5th station. As you take a few photos and admire the stunning views, listen as your guide details the mountain’s fascinating history, including its role in many famous poems and paintings. You’ll also hear about the more than 200,000 climbers that attempt to scale Mt. Fuji’s 12,389-foot (3,776-meter) peak each year, beginning their ascent from the 5th station. Make sure to bring a coat for your visit, as the high altitudes can often be colder.

Continue next to a nearby restaurant, where those who have selected the lunch option will enjoy Japanese meal served on a plate made from stone collected on Mt. Fuji. Those who have not selected the lunch option are free to explore the nearby restaurants and shops at their leisure.

Proceed next after lunch to the village of Yamanakako, which sits beside the shore of a picturesque lake of the same name. In Yamanakako head to Beni-Fuji-no-Yu, a hot spring (onsen) resort where you can relax in one of the site’s outdoor pools, surrounded by lush gardens and views of Mt. Fuji. The resort also offers saunas, steam rooms and waterfall showers as well.

Finish your Mt. Fuji experience with two hours of free time for shopping at Gotemba Premium Outlets. Offering 210 retail shops from brands including Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, and Ray-Ban, you’re sure to find a few items of interest. At the conclusion of your trip, head back by coach to the Shinjuku district of Tokyo.

First off it was a pretty good trip, my daughter loved it, and that's all that mattered as it was her birthday trip. But I will say that the picture they are using IS NOWHERE ON THIS TRIP. IN FACT, I DON'T KNOW ANYONE WHO EVEN KNOWS WHERE THAT PICTURE IS FROM. You're NOT getting that view NOT EVEN CLOSE! But not withstanding that, all the rest was cool.

Hiro our tour guid was very knowledgeable and was very time oriented. I love how the itinerary of the trip was prepared. The only thing missing was seeing Mt. fuji itself.

We enjoyed our tour very much! Our guide Kumi was very nice and helpful and shared with us a lot of things about the places we were going to. It was great that we stopped at a certain area where Mt. Fuji was visible and took photos, because when we got to the 5th station it was all foggy.

Onsen was a new experience for me and my friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience! And the hot water!

As we are from a country with no outlets like Gotemba, we really looked forward to outlet shopping. I know some people said that 2 hours is too long for this part of the trip. But for us, this is just right, or maybe it could be longer. The outlet is very very big, and the shops I wanted to visit were at the West Zone, whereas the bus parking is at the East Zone. Actually very tiring! But worth it for us!

Overall we had a fun day!! Btw, we availed of the sukiyaki lunch set for that day. Sukiyaki itself was good, but the tempura could be better.

The main issue is that:
1. Going to Mt. Fuji doesn't offer the view of stopping and seeing the whole mountain from afar, then going to a station for a short time, then leaving. It doesn't offer a special feeling of BEING in Fuji.
2. There are too many activities stuffed into a day that it doesn't feel you can stop and admire. Just stop for 20 to 30 minutes then off to the next destination. 30 minutes in Mt. Fuji, off to lunch with so little a time to browse the stores unless you eat fast 45 minutes. Then the onsen which you can only take for 30 minutes which include the browsing the store there too. Then the shopping, which capped off at 2 hours, which was the only reasonably proper time.
The good parts are that:
1. The places are very pretty. Fuji, for its lack of scenery at the stop, is still a beautiful place to see with all the natural environment and wildly growing trees. The communities where we had lunch and the onsen were both wonderful experiences.
2. The variety and flavor of the food deserve special note. While some people aren't used to Japanese cuisine, it doesn't make it bad. Quite the opposite, I encourage newcomers and foreigners to be adventurous with their palette.
3. The tour guide was informative and friendly. The special note of his dutifully making sure all tour members were accounted for was worthy of note.

It was a great experience! The meeting place was at the Hachiko statue. The hosts were very hospitable and they have an eye for the perfect silk kimono for you. Any body shape or size can wear a kimono. We will definitely come back with our daughters and experience it all over again. Thank you.

We will lucky to see the full Mt Fuji view but the sad part was the tour guide did not give us a chance to let us take the photo.
We will stop at station 1 but we cant even take a full view of mt fuji.
Such a good chance and lucky for us to have nice weather on that day but i was very disappointed we do not have a chance to take the full
view.the tour guide marie should have stopped at the train station before the lunch place as i saw there was very nice view of mt fuji.
The only plus point was the onsen ..other then that i will say it was disappointment and not worth the price.

They didnt take us to the 5th station which was annoying, we didnt manage to see the mt fuji AT ALL! and the picture that is posted as the main pic for this trip I dont know where they got it from because my eyes never saw such a place! the only thing that may save the day was the lunch which was ok... at least traditional japanese lunch and in a nice place!
would I do it again? NO thx!

Ah! and the outlets what a waste of time!
is a premium outlet full of brands like dolce gabbana, versace, dior, ralph lauren... so do not expect to find anything affordable! and i meant it...
