What to Expect
The day begins with a 2.5-hour coach journey to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Mt. Fuji, recognizable by its iconic snow-capped peak. On arrival, you’ll ascend to Mt. Fuji’s 5th Station—located halfway up the mountain at 7,545 feet (2,300 meters)—and absorb unobstructed views of Mt. Fuji’s Five Lakes. Following Fuji’s 5th Station, you’ll have time to purchase food, or, if you’ve upgraded, enjoy a traditional Japanese lunch (if you select the "+ Lunch" option at checkout). Then, head into Hakone National Park by coach and take a short sightseeing cruise on Lake Ashi. Your final stop is the summit of Mt. Komagatake, reachable by Komagatake Ropeway, one of Japan’s highest aerial tramways. During the ride, enjoy more spectacular views and take a stroll along a mountain trail at the top.
