What To Expect

Your day starts early with pickup in central 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 before departure. 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.

Traveler Tips

It's very windy when you are on the 5th station so take a jacket!
This tour can be a bit rushed due to how much is being done in the one day, so if you really want to spend a bit more time at each place it might require a 2 day tour.
If you have mobility issues better to team up with another couple and share the cost of a taxi, though taxis in a Japan are expensive, but overall fantastic day

Excellent tour guide, well organized tour with wonderful information. Lunch was great, and seeing Fuji was amazing. Hakone ropeway your was so beautiful, and the Lake Ashi boat ride was unforgettable. What a wonderful day!
Good tour... weather not so much.
Jake_F, Oct 2023
Booked this trip as it was from the hotel I was staying at in Tokyo. It was easy to find in the facility. The trip itself was good with a tour guide who provided us with information as we went along and ran a tight ship. Wish I had done a bit more research on the climate conditions at that time of the year as you couldn't really see the peak in Mt. Fuji. It was mired in fog. Overall, it was a good tour.
Awful tour
The guide was awful. Disorganised & did not give us information about the sights. When we got off the bus she ran off ahead so we could not even ask her about the sites we were seeing. Worse guide ever
Great trip , value for money
Jeni_P, Sep 2023
Seeing Mount Fuji and the Lake Ashi cruise , our guide was well versed in facts and he also taught us a little Japanese . We had ample time to go to the sights and do our cruise as well . But I think this activity could improve by the guide telling us the best views for taking Mt Fuji. We were a bit lost that this was the only stop where we could take pictures with the mountain .
Unforgettable day at Mt Fuji and Hakone.
David_A, Sep 2023
Was our most memorable day of our week in Japan. Lucky that we had a warm, clear day so Mt Fuji was in full view throughout and Hakone, the Lake Ashi cruise and the gondola was simply awesome. Sunrise Tours were well organised with an excellent tour guide & lunch, though the lunch venue was a bit odd - but fine. If you're on a short Tokyo break, then put this on the top of your tours list. We want to go back to Hakone again next time.
Joe was an excellent tour...
June_D, Sep 2023
Joe was an excellent tour guide. Bus driver as well. Joe was informed, well prepared, and kept us on time. The day was long but provided good value for money spent. Would recommend this tour.
A good value interesting day
wendy_W, Sep 2023
We enjoyed the full day tour giving us a good experience, we were very lucky with the weather so we were able to see Mount Fuji. The only disappointment was that the wind was too gusty to go on the ropeway our guide looked after us well and made sure we were in the right place for our travels. The mountain roads were quite tricky but we felt comfortable and safe with the driver. It was good to experience the bullet train on the way home giving us different experiences during the day
A Day Well Spent!
Shelly_T, Sep 2023
We had a memorable trip visiting Mt Fuji, Lake Ashi and the Hakone Shrine Ropeway. The 5th Station on Mt Fuji and the Hakone Shrine Ropeway provided magnificent views of the em IDK area. Our guide Yoshi was friendly, knowledgeable and he gave very helpful advice. Thank you for the great day!
Sunset over Mt Fuji
Reid_D, Sep 2023
Perfect weather to see the mountain all day! The bus stopped at a perfect spot after Hakone to catch the sunset.
Amazing Mt Fuji Adventure!!
Jeff_H, Sep 2023
Our tour guide was amazing. Very knowledgeable and kept everyone together. Love the whole experience.
Even my teenager enjoyed this experience
Kylie_G, Sep 2023
A great day experience and packed a lot in. The staff where so supportive and helpful, bending over backwards to help. If you are hard of hearing, don't sit at the back of the bus as you can't hear a lot of the info being shared by the tour guide. Otherwise, a fantastic experience.
Great tour, great value. Book it!
Andrew_L, Sep 2023
Mt. Fuji was cool, but honestly, Lake Ashi is the real star on this trip. It was incredible. Our group was fortunate enough to get an fantastic weather day with spectacular views. (This is not the norm). YMMV. I'll have pictures and memories for a lifetime from this one. Huge shoutout to our tour guide "Marie." She was funny, engaging, and full of energy. She had the bus laughing the whole time between venues and was sooooo helpful with cultural tips, anecdotes, and advice for navigating the greater Tokyo region. I would be remiss to forget giving kudos to Watanabe San, our driver. He expertly handled the winding mountain roads and got us safely to all of our destinations, early or on time. Book this tour, it's worth it if you have the time!
Excellent, highly recommended
Cangi_C, Sep 2023
Joe was a wonderful tour guide. Great sense of humour. Keep ut up. Best way to see Mount Fuji. Excellent work. Only recommendation would be, that cable car ride is up and back down, so that people who are afraid of heights doesn't need to think it is part of the experience. Great day.
Nice tour to Fuji and Hakone
Jorge_G, Sep 2023
It was a great experience. We had some bad luck with Mt Fuji a little bit foggy. I have to admit that the lunch was truly in a rush, but sacrifices must be made for the greater cause. Recommend.
Fuji san appears out of the clouds.
Tom_P, Sep 2023
A typhoon had hit Japan so Mt Fuji was not visible, however on the way back the bus made an unscheduled stop as the clouds cleared for a minute or two and the Guide stopped the bus so we could all get off and take a photo, within minutes the cloud covered Mt Fuji again. I appreciated him doing that for us as this was a once in a lifetime trip for me.
Toan_N, Sep 2023
Everything runs smoothly. Our tour guide Marie was so good at her job. We were lucky that the weather was perfect, too. Highly recommended!
lovely full day out
Mette_T, Sep 2023
if you are short of time and want to see a littlebit of Japan outside Tokyo, I would recommend this trip. It does seem slightly rushed at times, but you get to see a lot. We were lucky with amazing weather so we got to see Mount Fuji through most of the day. Our guide kept us well entertained on the coach trip part and we were happy to also get to ride the bullet train.
An informative and enjoyable day at Mt. Fuji and Lake Askone
Robert_M, Sep 2023
Good view of Mount Fuji and excellent guide. Unfortunately the variable weather intermittent sub, fog/mist) reduced the experience somewhat. Our guide ("Joe") was excellent, providing perspectives on the area and Japan, overall.
Terrible experience
Adrian_M, Sep 2023
Bad experience, Roppongi tower, nothing to do at the top but the view. Do a different observation deck. Had to pay twice as Viator never sent the QR code. They sent it the next day, no refund, useless.
Had a fantastic time
Graheme_W, Sep 2023
Had a fantastic day! Despite the weather forcing the Lake Ashi cruise and ropeway to be cancelled, and no view of Mt Fuji summit, our tour guide Joe, more than made up for it! Very entertaining! Highly recommend to any who wish to have a fun time!
