What To Expect

Get out of the city and into nature as you visit the famous Mount Fuji and its top nearby attractions like Lake Ashi and Mount Komagatake on this full-day excursion from Tokyo.

Start your tour with pickup from a central meeting point in Shinjuku and proceed on by air-conditioned bus for your ride to Mount Fuji, heading up to a height of 7,607 feet (2,305m) above sea level on the mountain. Upon arrival at Mt Fuji, enjoy the astounding views of the entire region and an informative museum that details the ecology, meteorology, culture, and history of the mountain and the nearby Fuji Five Lakes. You’ll also have time during your stop to check out the second-floor observation deck, offering stunning vistas of the peak of this renowned mountain on clear days.

Continue to Mount Fuji’s 5th Station, which lies about halfway up the mountain, for more incredible views. Take some time to wander the site’s souvenir store and its torii gates and shrines, which help commemorate the mountain’s symbolic role as a transition between heaven and earth. Stop by a local restaurant to enjoy a Japanese-style lunch (if option. is selected)

Head next to Lake Ashi, which lies in a crater formed by a massive volcanic eruption around 3,000 years ago. Take a short cruise of this postcard-perfect body of water, admiring views of Mount Fuji, Mount Komagatake, and other peaks in the distance.

Move back to the lakeshore after your cruise, where you’ll continue to Mount Komagatake Ropeway, which will whisk you to the mountain’s peak. Climb ever higher aboard this aerial tramway as you head to the summit, where you’ll then have time to wander around. Explore the beautiful views as you explore the top of the peak, including great views of Mount Fuji, the Izu Peninsula, and Izu islands, among other features. Your tour concludes with a coach transfer back to the Tokyo area.

Day trip
Tessa_K, Sep 2023
Enjoyed everything I saw. I have a fear of heights but quite surprised myself by going on the cable car. I was glad I conquered my fear. Guide was knowledgeable and entertaining.
Nice daytrip
Wouter_H, Sep 2023
Miko the very friendly guide doing her best to make it a memorable trip. It was a bit foggy so the views were a bit less than expected. Spent quite a lot of time in the bus.
Must do when in Tokyo
Chris_H, Sep 2023

Experience of a lifetime
Tina_F, Sep 2023

Short review
Phillip_M, Sep 2023
Most memorable part was the sightseeing at the locations. The negative, tour was rushed and running behind from the very beginning resulting in minimal time spent at locations. Tour wasn’t very informative about locations. We were left to our own devices at the locations (which we had little to no knowledge of) and told to just come back in a short time. Side note, lunch provided was cold as we arrived late.
A generally disappointing day.
Michael_S, Aug 2023
Poor time keeping. Average lunch. Weather forecast wasnt great and cable car suspension could have been better anticipated. We opted to leave the bus and catch bullet train home. Didnt see fuji due to clouds but that wasnt the operators fault
Nothing great
ennio_m, Aug 2023
We could not see Mount Fuji because the weather was foggy and cloudy. Spent most of the time in the bus. The lunch included in the excursion was scarce and not good. I would not repeat it
Good exhilarating experience, could have been best of we have had seen Mt Fuji view
Lakhiani54, Aug 2023
Hakone Ropeway and lake ashi Cruise. Mt Fuji fifth station wasn't possible due to bad weather and couldn't see Mt Fuji.. there should have been some arrangements to take a glimpse of Mt Fuji from other source or stations or later in the day ..
Perfect day trip while traveling from Tokyo on to Kyoto!
Teresa_M, Aug 2023
The tour guide was knowledgeable and offered interesting context and stories while on the bus. He was also very kind to put my suitcase in the storage compartment under the bus. There was too much fog for the ropeway experience or for Lake Ashi, but our tour guide arranged for us to go on a different lake, which was also very nice, and also to a nice museum near the lake we were originally supposed to be on. I was hopping off the tour a little early to get to the ryokan where I was staying and I was worried about missing the dinner which required me to arrive by a certain time. He called the ryokan on my behalf to arrange with them to accommodate my later arrival time. He also helped me figure out the fastest way to get there from where I was hopping off the tour bus. Mt Fuji was incredible to see and we were lucky to see it when the sky was perfectly clear! This tour was well worth the money and the tour guide's knowledge and hospitality blew me away!
Despite the mt Fuji was...
Sebastien_M, Aug 2023
Despite the mt Fuji was hidden by the cloud, we enjoyed the tour. The guide from the agency can speak a very good English and was very informative
Amazing trip!
Julian_C, Jul 2023

Rafael_S, Jul 2023
The return trip was not included in the tour, the food (lunch) was not good, Komagate ropeway was skipped... Not recommended

Wonderful tour! We were very lucky because it was a sunny day so we have a clear view of Mount Fuji. Our tour guide, Miko, was so knowledgeable and patient. The bus ride was comfortable. We highly recommend this tour.
