    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 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.

    • "It's very windy when you are on the 5th station so take a jacket!" See review
    • "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." See review
    • "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" See review

    It was a great tour that included event more that we anticipated. Lunch was very traditional and we enjoyed scenic views of the lake. going during the COVID-19 outbreak meant that we received even more attention since they were only 10 of us in total.

    Majestic Mt Fuji

    Our guide was very knowledgeable. It had snowed the previous week so it wasn't safe to go beyond the 1st stop up to Mt Fuji. The views were still spectacular. Lunch was a delicious feast that catered to my vegetarian needs. It was a memorable and enjoyable tour.

    Fantastic day to see Mt Fuji
    Margherita_L
    , Mar 2020
    We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mt Fuji as we had picture perfect weather. The drive to Mt Fuji itself is long but Toto our guide kept us informed the whole way with information about Tokyo and its history. Toto also was attentive to our needs to make certain we knew the times and place of meeting points. She also accompanied us on the train back to Tokyo station. You have to give her commendation for doing that, You don’t spend a long time at the station on Mt Fuji itself. At the lunch stop we got a fantastic view of Mt Fuji. We did not purchase the lunch option at the restaurant, If you decide not to purchase lunch you will need to either bring food with you or you can purchase snacks at Mt Fuji station. Lake Ashi was a beautiful ride to cable car. As mentioned the weather was perfect that day. At top of cable car we got a fantastic view of Mt Fuji as it was clear sunny sky. It’s a long day but we were so happy to see Mt Fuji.

    There was a typhoon in Japan the day we were suppose to arrive in Japan so all airlines were delayed by one or two days. We notified Viator of our problem and was told that was too bad and we lost all our money. I will never use them again!!!!!!!!!

    This trip was fantastic from start to finish our guide Taki was great as we were travelling to each destination he gave lots of information about the areas we were traveling through and also some of the history of those places. I would recommend the lunch package as it was a large and very traditional japanese meal.

    Beautiful day trip to Mt Fuji
    SilasLundgaard_F
    , Feb 2020
    The trip from Tokyo to My. Fuji was overall really good. We were taken by taxi to another meeting point in Tokyo, to meet up with the majority of the tour group. The bus was clean, if with quite narrow seats, so best if you're comfortable sitting close with your seating companion. The visitor center at the base of Mt Fuji offered close up pictures of the snow covered mountain, and had a video and some information boards inside the building. Due to heavy snow the day before we were unable to go further than 1st base, so we didn't really get to go up far on the mountain unfortunately. We had a Japanese inspired lunch catering to the adventurous and those accustomed to Japanese food. I ate all, but most others hardly ate, just sampled. The short ferry ride on lake Ashi took us through the Kanagawa mountain range, which was quite a beautiful scenery. And you got a good look on the ropeway cable car taking you up on top of mount Hakone by the small shrine there. The view was quite spectacular here, with Mt Fuji on one side and the whole greater Tokyo and sea laid out before you on the other side. We had planned the date according to the weather, so it was clear blue skies and sunny all day, which I find is something you have to aim for. With cloudy weather I think it would be less breathtaking. Finally we got taken to the nearby train station where we rode the bullet train back to Tokyo station. A pleasant day, with some 5 hours of transportation, and the rest amidst beautiful Japanese nature. I can recommend it. As a last remark our tour guide was an older Japanese man, who struggled quite a bit with his English. As with all Japanese people I've met he took his job seriously though, and made sure we all got where we needed to go, and tried his best to teach us a bit of history along the way. I think though he should stick to guiding the way, and not so much try to teach. :)

    Superb day out!
    Michael_B
    , Feb 2020
    I booked this day trip out based on reviews on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. Firstly - the weather was gorgeous, which made it really special as I had full views of Mount Fuji within 10 mins of leaving the hotel on the coach. There were around 30 people in my group which was a good size, and everyone was back at the coach on time. Highlight of the day was the first stop (at a lake for coffee break) and to take pictures of Mount Fuji as it sat across the lake - this was the BEST view point of the day. We did go later much closer to the mountain (we could only get to 1st station due to snow - highest you can go by coach is 5th station) - however, even at 1st station as you are actually on Mount Fuji you can't get a great picture as you are so close to it. Best pics are from the first stop at the lake, and last stop on the cable car. All in all a fantastic day out. Lunch was buffet style and excellent too. Our guide - KANAE was very good - spoke in perfect English and was very knowledgable. Can highly recommend this trip. Also suggest to take the bullet train back to Tokyo at the end of the trip (back in Tokyo in 30-40 mins) as opposed to returning by coach which takes around 2 hours.

    Too many changes
    Abhay_K
    , Feb 2020
    I think it's better if JTB can specifically say about changes to the tour and schedule upfront instead of tour guide announcing it and causing disappointments. E.g. what Mt Fuji station can be reached; can the cruise go ahead, and what would be alternate arrangement in case each of this is not available.

    Definitely a major highlight of my trip to Japan. All aspects of the process and directions were easy and simple. It was easy to find my meeting place, The Marriot and staff at the Marriot was helpful in directing us. Our Tour Guide, Keito, was fun, lively, knowledgeable, caring and provided interesting facts about our sites. She was carefully attending to us to make sure we enjoyed the trip, giving clear directions which she repeated so we knew exactly was expected of us. I will definitely use Viator for trips again.

    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.

    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 !
