It was a great time at Mt Fuji and Hakone. Roji and Suzuki San were great guiding us. It was a shame that weather didn't help us with the Mt Fuji views, but overall it was very satisfying experience. Transport and lunch were very good. Also cruise and cable car. We'd have liked to stay more time in some places, but schedule was tight for so many activities.

Great value for money
Carly_N, Sept 2023
Fabulous value for money with the amount you get to see and do in one day. Although you travel a long way, the commentary keeps it interesting.
Great tour
C_C, Sept 2023
The tour guide provided and shared a lot of useful information through out the tour. He made sure he’s available to help everyone through out the tour. The bus was comfortable. The view of Mt. Fuji was awesome.
A lot in one day
S_K, Sept 2023
You see a lot in a lot of different places and are different experiences and very worthwhile. Different modes of transport also.
Mount Fuji
Andrea_E, Sept 2023
Not what i expected and was pricey for what it was. I loved the tour guide though she was amazing and hilarious
Weather didn't help but great experience at Hakone & Fuji.

MT Fuji Experience
Annie_L, Sept 2023
The trip was just great because of our tour guide Taka. He was so informative and very helpful. I recommend Taka, tremendously. I hope Viator recognize such a wonderful “ asset” he has been to the company. AL
Zachary_J, Sept 2023
Bus left late. Extreme rain on the day of the tour - understanding that the tour terms say rain or shine - I showed the employee checking everyone that there were multiple seats available on the next day's trip and he just kept stating "fully booked" despite me showing him the listing to his face. Tour operator got everyone onto the bus and then stated that there was an incoming typhoon, so expect activities to be cancelled. Yes, the tour operator knew there was a typhoon, knew there would be cancelled activities, and still forced everyone to take the tour. Lake Ashi Cruise and Lake Ashinoko stops were cancelled. We were told we would be going to Odawara Castle as the substitute activity. As is REQUIRED by the terms of the listing and by the itinerary they supplied day of, cancelled activities will be replaced with another activity. We finished at the shrine and were told we wouldn't actually be going to the castle and the tour was simply over. As an apology for the terrible weather and the multiple cancelled activities, we were handed an "omamori" or Japanese amulet by the tour guide as we loaded the bus for the trains station, who expressed apologies. Having purchased the exact same item from the shrine shop, the cost was 500 yen ($3.39 USD). Nothing more was said other than "sorry". I reached out first to Viator for a partial refund for the cancelled activity, who denied my refund within minutes. I then reached out to Japan Panoramic Tours, this tour operator, and they responded with the attached. That the entire Lake Ashinoko tour and cruise was covered because we accepted the 500 yen amulet as "compensation." They then told Viator that the amulet was itself an "activity", so Viator again denied my refund on re-review. I attempted to inform them that that's not how that works, and they simply stopped responding to me. Less than honest tour operator who does not live up to promises they made in a binding contract for services, and their behavior after the fact put a huge damper on the tour. As for the tour itself, Hakone Ropeway and the shrine were great. Ninja village was small and took approximately 10 minutes to walk through. Lunch was terrible, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pack your own lunch, Even a grab and go from a convenience store would be better.
So much to see and do. Amazing views
Ryan_W, Sept 2023
Don't know where to start. There was so much to see and do. Angie our guide was super amazing. Even tried the black eggs.
Not the best :(
Claire_C, Sept 2023
Most of the trip was spent on a bus (within expectations due to travel distance) and I really wish the tour guide had been a bit more involved, as the automated audio guide on the bus was heavily relied upon. As for our itinerary... Mt Fuji was unfortunately covered by clouds when we were up at the 5th Station. No one can control the weather so I don't hold this against anyone. The Hakone ropeway was fine but the views at the Owakudani valley were not worth the intense sulfuric smell, in my opinion. I did enjoy the Lake Ashi cruise and the hike up to the Hakone shrine. We did choose the lunch option but regretted it - the quality of food was subpar and nothing seemed fresh. The "ninja village" had a nice garden for photos though. All in all, I don't really think the trip was worth the time or money. It may be more productive/worth it to plan a direct trip to the Mt Fuji area for more a more relaxed pace of travel and to give yourself a good chance to catch Mt Fuji in optimal weather conditions.
Well worth the trip
alan_c, Sept 2023
We enjoyed all parts of this tour , our guide Mint was excellent and very caring (I walk with a stick). Also the driver was excellent
Not worth it!
Tatiana_F, Aug 2023
Let me begin with the most important thing: you will pay a LOT less if you book directly from the company. The name is written in the tour and you can go to their website. Second, there is a great chance that you won’t see mount Fuji at all. Third, the lunch is really poor. The rest is ok, but if you’re going to Kyoto, why loosing a day with a so so lake and temples?!
Tour Guide, Taka, was good.
Abhishek_S, Aug 2023
Tour Guide - Our guide, Taka, was very helpful and informative. He had lots of ancedotes to share Overall Tour - pickup point was a bit confusing since there were several tours in the same place. But overall it was ok. Though would have loved to stay @Mt. Fuji for some more time.
Fantastic tour, brilliant tour guide
Rachael_O, Aug 2023
We booked on this tour as a group of 20 (4 adults and 16 teenagers). We had a fantastic day. Our tour guide, Angela, was fabulous - very helpful, friendly and good humoured. Her English was excellent and she was able to explain about the different places we went to. She went above and beyond to ensure we had a great day. Through doing the tour, we were able to explore far more of the Mount Fuji area than if we tried to do this ourselves. The day ran smoothly and everything was well organised. Thank-you to Angela for a great day!
Mt Fuji and Hakone
Thao_P, Aug 2023
Mt Fuji and Hakone, great, too short time at the last stop not enough time to visit 2places in 20minutes. However, an awesome trip.
hilaryhazell, Aug 2023
Ninja experience was a waste of time. Was just for kids. Guide Andie was lovely and helpful. Long queue for cruise.
Full throttle Mt Fuji tour
Rachael_W, July 2023
This tour was a wonderful way to see outside of Tokyo and experience some natural beauty. Our tour guide Mao made every effort to ensure our day was a fabulous experience and it was. What I recommend 1. Get lunch and bullet train option, it's an epic day and you'll be glad to be on train vs bus going back to Tokyo. 2. Where VERY comfortable clothes and footwear 3. Bring plenty of water Caution 1. Day is super long, so if you don't like getting on and off buses, this trip is not for you 2. If you have very small children, it's alot of walking and may be too much for under 7yrs. 3. If you are mobility impaired don't do this tour, we had a lady who struggled with a slight knee issue. 4. If you are a general complainer about long tours don't book this tour. Give everyone a break from your wyning. Exceptional tour would highly recommend.
Show up early and double check booking
Kennedy_H, July 2023
Overall, I ended up having a decent experience thanks to Japan Panoramic tours!! However, there are multiple companies (all who use viator and other services) to book Mt Fuji and other tours. I tell you this bc I was rerouted by one guide when I said I was wity viator and ended up being in the wrong area which caused a lot of complications. I generally don’t run into this with viator and regularly use them, but had a lot of issues this time. Wana give others a heads up!
Nice tour, but too rushed
Stein_B, July 2023
The tour has some nice stops, but all of them feel too rushed and don’t give you enough time to enjoy the available activities or photo opportunities.
We wanted to get outside...
Shannon_S, July 2023
We wanted to get outside of Tokyo and the major cities for a day and this was a perfect way to spend the day. The weather didn't cooperate and we didn't get to see Mt. Fuji but the trip and the events they had planned for it were well worth the time and cost.
4K is amazing
Kyle_G, July 2023
The best part of the trip for myself and my wife was our guide 4K she was very nice and understanding and patient with us and made the trip worth while
