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.

Excellent tour

It was a great tour that included event more that we anticipated. Lunch was very traditional and we enjoyed scenic views of the lake. going during the COVID-19 outbreak meant that we received even more attention since they were only 10 of us in total.

Majestic Mt Fuji

Our guide was very knowledgeable. It had snowed the previous week so it wasn't safe to go beyond the 1st stop up to Mt Fuji. The views were still spectacular. Lunch was a delicious feast that catered to my vegetarian needs. It was a memorable and enjoyable tour.

Fantastic day to see Mt Fuji
Rita

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mt Fuji as we had picture perfect weather. The drive to Mt Fuji itself is long but Toto our guide kept us informed the whole way with information about Tokyo and its history. Toto also was attentive to our needs to make certain we knew the times and place of meeting points. She also accompanied us on the train back to Tokyo station. You have to give her commendation for doing that, You don’t spend a long time at the station on Mt Fuji itself. At the lunch stop we got a fantastic view of Mt Fuji. We did not purchase the lunch option at the restaurant, If you decide not to purchase lunch you will need to either bring food with you or you can purchase snacks at Mt Fuji station. Lake Ashi was a beautiful ride to cable car. As mentioned the weather was perfect that day. At top of cable car we got a fantastic view of Mt Fuji as it was clear sunny sky. It’s a long day but we were so happy to see Mt Fuji.

There was a typhoon in Japan the day we were suppose to arrive in Japan so all airlines were delayed by one or two days. We notified Viator of our problem and was told that was too bad and we lost all our money. I will never use them again!!!!!!!!!

This trip was fantastic from start to finish our guide Taki was great as we were travelling to each destination he gave lots of information about the areas we were traveling through and also some of the history of those places. I would recommend the lunch package as it was a large and very traditional japanese meal.
