Itinerary

  • You will be picked up from a scheduled meeting point at the given time for the start of your Mt Fuji tour. The tour starts from Shinjuku. You will be travelling via Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway and Chuo Expressway.

    The tour covers the following attractions:
    Oshino Hakkai: A picturesque set of 8 ponds in Oshino, a small village in the Fuji Five Lake region. The ponds are fed by the snow melt from the slopes of nearby Mount Fuji resulting in very clear spring water that is revered by the locals.
    Oshino Shinobi no Sato: Visit the Ninja village and recreate the times of ninja and samurai and of old Japanese houses with hidden doors and traps. Enjoy an outstanding view of Mount Fuji, experience the Japanese traditional ninja culture, meet a real Ninja, take photos with him and try Ninja activities!
    Optional Lunch: You can upgrade your package to include a sumptuous Japanese lunch and sample some local cuisine.
    • Take a trip up to Mt. Fuji's 5th Station at an elevation of 2,300 meters, enjoy the closest views of Mt Fuji from there and visit "Komitake Shinto shrine" to greet the god. If the 5th station is inaccessible, we will reach the highest on the driveway of the day. If only the 1st station is accessible, we will attend the Fuji Visitor Center as an alternative activity.
    Fuji Airways: A virtual flight simulator that takes you soaring over Tokyo and up the slopes of Mount Fuji. An incredible 4D experience ride based on the latest Japanese technology.
    Lake Kawaguchi-ko: Visit the spectacular Lake Kawaguchi-ko , famed as the second largest of the Fuji Five Lakes in terms of surface area. A gateway to Mt. Fuji and a must-see sight for its perfect Mt Fuji scenery. Admire the natural reflecting pool for Mt. Fuji and be sure to savour the delightful fresh blueberry ice cream!

    The tour ends at Shinjuku Station West exit.
