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.
