Description

Departing from Tokyo, conquer Mount Fuji! 

Departing from your hotel, travel by bus to the foot of this Japanese giant. When you arrive at the Mount Fuji visitor's centre we will climb up the mountain by bus to Mt. Fuji’s 5th Station.

Mount Fuji is an active volcano, and is the highest point of Japan, 3,776 m above sea level. Called Fujisan by the Japanese and Fujiyama by westerners, Mount Fuji is the symbol of the Land of the Rising Sun. It was listed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 2013, sacred place and source of artistic inspiration.

After exploring the mountain, you will enjoy a Japanese style lunch (optional) before travelling to Kojiri by bus. Here we will get on a boat for a short cruise on Lake Ashi to enjoy impressive view of Mount Fuji from water. 

We will then take cable car from Mount Komaganetake to Hakone, to see the panoramic views from the top of this mountain.

When we return back to the bottom we will go to Odawara station to board the famous high speed train: Shinkansen, which takes us back to Tokyo.

  • Départ de Tokyo en bus un peu avant 9h. 2h de route plus tard, il y a une halte à la 5ème station. Pour ma part, c'est là que se situe la plus belle vue sur le Mont Fuji.
