Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Mt. Fuji, Yamanakako Onsen Experience, and Outlets Shopping Day Trip from Tokyo

Cleanse your body and soul at the onsen

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.

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.

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.

It's always amazing to come and see Mt Fuji everytime you're in Japan! The beauty of this is the convenience of doing that in a bus and the added things you can see after.

The tour to Mount Fuji, Onsen and shopping at the outlets was the highlight of my 7-day trip to Tokyo. I had previously visited Mount Fuji but had done so via trains and bus. This caused much waste of time!. Highly recommend this tour!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and paid much attention to details and to our personal needs. The outlets are no different from the ones in the US

Overall a great tour. Our guide gave us a lot of interesting trivia about Japan and Tokyo during our drives. The bus was clean and comfortable and thanks to traffic generally on-time. The Onsen was a nice break as we toured during winter, there was a restaurant available for guests who didn't want to bathe. The Outlet shopping was what you would expect in any Outlet Mall in the US except all of the sizing is to Japanese proportions. There were a few non-clothing stores such as Pokémon Store that really made the trip worthwhile.

The tour was amazing because the weather was bright and sunny. We got all the way to the 4th station in December. It was beautiful and spectacular! The tour was on schedule the entire time. Definitely worth it to do the buffet lunch. It is in a shinobi ninja village and food was plentiful and delicious and the place itself has a fantastic view of Mt. Fuji. Then the onsen has a fantastic view as well if you bath outside, that was incredible. If you haven't done onsen, you definitely should try it and don't skip it. The men and women are separate and yes you do have to bath naked. But it is really fantastic. Then the outlet mall also has a very nice view of Mt. Fuji but the mall itself is just like many other outlet malls, still definitely worth it. Got back around 7:30pm. Was a really amazing tour! Posted some photos but no photos allowed for/from Onsen obviously.

Such an amazing day! I loved the time at Mt. Fuji and the onsen was a once in a lifetime experience. My only suggestion is to spend less time at the Outlet Mall and more time at Mt. Fuji and the onsen.
