Let's explore majestic Mt. Fuji and the natural beauty of Hakone


This tour will be conducted by van due to the inconvenience of public transportation between Mt. Fuji and Hakone.

At Mt. Fuji, we will visit the 5th Station and/or Mt. Fuji Visitor Center. At Hakone, we will take a cruise on Lake Ashi and ride the ropeway to Owakudani.

Mt. Fuji is the hightest mountain in Japan at 3, 776m(12, 388ft). It has been worshipped and loved by the Japanese people since ancient times as a holly mountain. The volcano has been inactive for over 300 years, and we can go up to the 5th Station by vehicles except winter seasons.

Hakone is one of the most popular mountain resorts in Japan, situated on the Hakone Caldera floor surrounded by the crater walls. It is famous for hot springs and seasonal mountain beauty including spring cherry blossoms and autumn colors. The crater lake and spectacular view of Mt. Fuji are also major attractions.

=This tour is not available on Saturdays, Sundays and national holidays except winter.
=I can arrange a larger van for more than 6 persons.

In winter season and early spring, the road to the 5th Station is often closed due to ice and snow. If that is the case, you will go up to the highest possible point of the mountain and/or visit Oshino Hakkai, eight ponds fed by gushing springs at the foot of Mt. Fuji.

A Recent Review of this tour

We were very fortunate that the weather allowed a good view of Mt. Fuji, although in the summer months the iconic snow cap is missing! Visited the Maglev Exhibition Centre to experience/view 500km/hr test runs of the world record breaking high speed train, blink and you have missed it! Sachiko san recomended the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum which is an architectural masterpiece in itself and the displays of tie dyed silk and glass beads were delightful. Musuem shop with beautiful gifts. A full & varied day.
