What You Can Expect

Mt Fuji and Aokigahara Forest Day Trip from Tokyo

Suited up and ready to go in!

For anyone short on time, this combination Mount Fuji and forest day trip is the perfect way to sample of the scenic beauty of Japan’s great outdoors. You will be picked up in the morning and start heading towards the snow-capped Mount Fuji, Japan’s most-famous peak.

Upon arrival at the 5th Station, the highest point reachable on Mt Fuji by vehicle, take the next 30 to 40 minutes to savor the breathtaking views, camera at-the-ready, or check out the on-site gift shop for a souvenir.

The second half of your day begins at the Sea of Trees, known officially as Aokigahara Forest. The striking landscape is the result of thousands of years of volcanic activity, creating the area’s exposed lava flows, exposed tree roots and eerie caves formed by explosions of volcanic gas. The day’s final activity takes you on an adventure inside Narusawa Ice Cave with a local guide, an activity normally off-limits to most visitors. Your insider’s exploration weaves through the slippery surfaces of this subterranean space, revealing the cave’s surreal ice formations.

End your tour with a drop-off at the bus stop of the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park to wait for a bus back to Tokyo, with a ticket given to you by your guide. Pass the time with activities including bowling, a gift shop and concession stand. Take the two-hour bus ride back to Tokyo and continue the fun.

This is a great day tour to get a sample of Mt Fuji and the Aokigahara Forest.
The Mt Fuji part of the trip is shared with two tour groups. At lunch time the groups splits up and those on the Aokigahara and Cave trip will be picked up by a local guide the rest continue on to Hakone for the afternoon.
The 5th Station of Mt Fuji was closed due to snow on the day, so we were taken to the Fuji World Heritage Centre instead. We were lucky to have a beautiful clear sky and great views of Mt Fuji.
We had plenty of time to get lunch after this will we waited for our Aokigahara/Cave guide.
The cave that you go to has a bamboo ladder that you climb down. The floor of the cave is solid ice so be sure to wear suitable shoes. When we were dropped off at the bus station for our bus back to Tokyo, our guide offered to check if our tickets could be swapped for an earlier bus.
The guides for our trip were great. They were both knowledgeable, polite, helpful and had a great sense of humour.

Oh yes!!! This trip was amazing! The Mt. Fuji trip was great and I am so glad that we got a clear blue sky on that day! The Mt. Fuji was unforgettable and the tour was very easy. The Aokigahara Forest Ice Cave was phenonomous! Our tour guide was very intellectual and gave all of us great insights about the nature and some Japanese cultures as well. I will totally recommend this tour to anybody who needs an adventure outside of the Tokyo city scenery. It's awesome! Loved it!

I feel that I need to point out something that wasn't clear in any of the reviews my husband and I read prior to booking this tour. The ice cave is not for anyone with any physical issues. This is an actual cave, not a tunnel. Parts of the descent into the cave are at a steep angle. There is also a 6-step bamboo ladder. If you are in good physical health, this tour is for you. The cave was beautiful, but again, be sure that you are physically capable of tackling it. The jumpsuits/helmets/headlamps in the photos of this tour are NOT for show.

The tour guides for both portions of this tour were great you begin the day with a larger tour before you break off to visit the forest and ice cave. I have to say that the tour guide for the forrest was amazing.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. Although there was a delay in getting to Mt Fuji due to roadworks, the tour guide worked hard to keep us entertained and catered for. Mt Fuji station was our first stop. It was freezing and we could not see the mountain unfortunately due to rain and clouds. Our next stop was the Aokigahara Forest and Ice Caves - and this is a MUST DO for those interested in seeing a unique side to Japan. I loved every second of it - and our guide was very funny, informative, and we all felt safe with him as he guided us into the underground cave. After this amazing experience, we drove back to our pick up site where our bus was due to take us back to Tokyo and were greeted with a parting of the clouds and a magnificent view of Mt Fuji - it was quite an awe inspiring experience. I would highly recommend this trip to others and have done so. FIVE STARS - thank you for such an amazing experience!

Guide on first part of tour spoke good English, and gave lots of info about Tokyo and Mt Fuji on the way there.
Guide for cave and forest tour was very nice, knowledgeable, spoke decent English. Was snowing when we went to the forest, which (I think) added to the experience. Would definitely recommend

Our guide was wonderful. That wind/ice cave was a really great place to be in the highest heat of summer. It was mystical, dark, beautiful and everything we expected.

It was fun getting there. Mt. Fuji was covered in fog though. We went to the Ice Caves. The only issue was the ride back. We had to make multiple stops and traffic was bad. I would have like an express ticket with no hassles. Our bus was late. We musta waited 1hr The good thing is that they ordered tickets in advance. Our ice cave tour guide was awesome. Please share my email address with him!

Go for the caving. Period. That and #39;s it. Nothing else. It was the experience of a lifetime, the highlight of my entire two week trip. It was amazing. Fuji was nice, but the caving experience is where it and #39;s at.
