How to Choose a Mt. Fuji Tour

How to Choose a Mt. Fuji Tour

Because it’s Japan’s tallest mountain—and a worldwide icon—no trip to Tokyo would be complete without visiting snow-capped Mt. Fuji. But with so many sightseeing options available, it can be difficult to choose the one that best suits you. Here are our tips to help you decide which Mt. Fuji tour is right for you.

For First-Time Visitors

First-time visitors looking for a quintessential Mt. Fuji experience should consider a full-day package that includes a boat ride on Ashi Lake and a visit to Hakone and Mt. Fuji 5th Station—which offers sweeping views of Fuji Five Lakes and Hakone National Park. Most tours that depart from Tokyo include round-trip rides on the shinkansen (bullet train). Upgrade to include a soak in hot springs or an onsen.

For Outdoor Enthusiasts

If you want the full Mt. Fuji experience, then opt for a 2-day hiking tour, which comes with the reward of sunrise at the summit of Japan’s highest mountain. Tours typically include accommodation in a mountain lodge and a guide.

For Thrill Seekers

For travelers looking to raise their adrenaline levels, a tour that combines a visit to Mt. Fuji with time at Fuji-Q Highland theme park is a must. Day trips typically visit Mt. Fuji 5th Station in the morning and culminate with free time at the theme park, which boasts record-breaking roller coasters and views of Mt. Fuji.

For Families

If you’re traveling with kids in tow, opt for a private tour on which you’ll benefit from the undivided attention of a guide, as well as the flexibility to customize your itinerary. Tours can combine a pirate ship cruise on Lake Ashi and time to shop at Gotemba Outlet, home to 200 stores.
