Description

Get on the bus in Ueno or Shinjuku before heading towards the Mt. Fuji area. On clear days, you can already see Mt Fuji from afar during the bus ride.

The first stop of this tour is one of Japan's most iconic spots: Chureito Pagoda, on top of Mt Arakurayama. This scenery captures the symbolic pagoda and Mt.Fuji in the background, as often seen on postcards.

After coming down from Mt. Arakurayama, proceed to Kawaguchiko craft park to try your hand at some traditional Japanese crafts and not so traditional ones, right next to Kawaguchi Lake. If you prefer, you could just have your lunch and walk around the lake for a scenic view of Mt. Fuji and its reflection on Lake Kawaguchi.

Later, visit the next scenic spot Oishi Park. This offers a seasonal scenery of various types of flowers with Mt.Fuji in the background. A truly satisfying spot for all the social media buffs!

Finally, stop by Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nenba which is located on the banks of Lake Saiko. This village has several houses with thatched roof and one can get a glimpse of life in Japan in the olden days. Walk around this village with the scenic Mt.Fuji in the background.

The tour will conclude at 6:15 PM when you will be dropped off in Shinjuku.

Please note: Please note: From November 1st to 23rd 2019 the tour itinerary will slightly change to make you have the best experience of Japanese autumn in the Mt. Fuji area! In fact, after visiting Lake Kawaguchi Craft Park, we will move on to one of the lake’s best spots for foliage, a colorful corridor of more than 400 maple trees creating a unique fall atmosphere!

4.1 out of 5

2/5 Nov 13, 2019

It was ok. The stops were nice but a little boring. Not much happening anywhere. Also, we did not have enough time anywhere... we constantly felt rushed. The tour was advertised in both Chinese and English, however our guide spoke Chinese most of the time and we had a hard time understanding. The guide was ok. She always seemed exasperated and over it. It would have been nice to get an explanation at each site, but we didn’t. We were kind of just left there and told to be back at a certain time. Since the mountain is only visible 88/365 days of the year, there was a good chance we weren’t going to see it. We saw it at our last stop right before getting on the bus. However, visible or not, I thought this tour was a little too expensive for what we did.
