What To Expect

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.

Good Tour, wonderful tour guide

Yabe-san was our tour guide. Great fellow, wonderful guide. We missed the cablecar ride (cancelled cos of strong winds) but gave us a tour of hakone instead. Lunch was good & hearty. It was a sunny day and we saw Mt Fuji on a cloudless day, the snow glistening in the sun. Tour was well worth it. Highly recommended.

Great day out

We were blessed to have a fine day & great viewing of Mt Fuji . Our guide Joe was just brilliant/ very friendly , personable, professional & helpful. The lunch was ordinary & we would prefer to have bought our own in hindsight. Joe gave a great talk about all the various parts of the set meal - which is great for those who haven’t been to Japan before . Joe stayed with the group taking the Shinkansen back to Tokyo & gave everyone very individual service as to how exactly to get themselves back to their hotels . I loved the mountainous areas we passed on our return to Odewara ( where we caught the Shinkansen) with all the Shinto shrines , temples and red Toru gates . A great day out !

Great trip, but timing needs work

The experiences included in this trip were great. We made it up to the 4th station and the weather was perfectly sunny. My only problem was with the timing. We had a small group and were always back on time or even early. We ended up missing the boat by a few minutes and waited around 40 minutes for the next one (we could have easily cut lunch 10-15 minutes short...we took an hour but the itinerary said 45 mins). Then we were all back to the bus early after the ropeway. The tour guide was shopping or something instead of checking on us, we missed the bullet train back by 5 mins and had to wait 30 mins for another one. Tour guides should know about the boat and train times and do their best to plan properly around them. It was very frustrating wasting 90 minutes of my day waiting around. Tour guide Harry was very nice but just needs to pay more attention to those things and this would’ve been a 5 star trip.

Excellent Guide, Average Itinerary
andrewjones202

The trip was mainly very good, this was due to our excellent tour guide, Mayumi. Due to weather conditions we we only able to stop at the first station of Mt Fuji which seemed a bit pointless as pictures from there weren’t very good. From there we went on a boat trip around a different lake as it was too windy to cruise around Lake Ashi which was pretty and allowed us to get plenty of good photos of Mt Fuji. We also had lunch included which was weirdly in a restaurant inside of a theme park! The lunch was a traditional ramen-type soup with a small buffet. After that we visited the ropeway which enabled more good photos of Fuji. Finally we took the Shinkansen back to Tokyo, I would highly recommend doing this as it was an amazing experience - getting us back to the city in 25 minutes! Overall our guide Mayumi really made the trip for us, she was very knowledgable and friendly. I can’t rate her enough for the insight she gives you into Japanese culture.

Dissapointed

The day we traveled, the weather was foggy, rainy and a bit windy at the end, so we were no able to see mt. Fuji. Not organisers fault and they state that they won't cancel trip because of bad weather. Here you already might choose not to go with prepaid tour but either do it yourself on they day you choose or book when you know weather forcast. We had 4 stops on our trip: mt.fuji museum 30min, 1st step 30min (could not go to fifth due to weather), lunch 1 hour and cable car 1.5 hours (which I skipped because it was already pooring with rain and the visibility even on the ground was poor). Overall the whole sightseeing experience 2.5 hours as opposed to 6.5 hours sitting on the bus and 30 min on bullet train. We were back to Tokyo by bullet train at 5.20pm. I think the announced return time should have been 7pm. The guide was ok, but I could hardly understand her english, so when we get to mt.fuji museum I was hoping to watch a movie about mt. Fuji in English, but by the time it started (runs every 30min after a movie in Chinese), we had to go back to our bus. So overall, I would not recommend. I think next time we'd better just do it ourselves on a nice day we can pick and choose how much time we stay in one location.
