On the Fuji tour we will visit Mount Fuji in Yamanashi prefecture. You will get to see all the highlights of Kawaguchiko, the city at the foot of Mt. Fuji.
Depending on the season and the weather we can make a stop at various places. Mt. Fuji is sometimes shrouded in clouds, so on a clear bright day we can show you the best spots to see Mt Fuji with some gorgeous cherry blossoms (in late March/Early April), or beautiful autumn leaves (late October/Early November).
Which sights will we go see?
All year round you can go to Mt Fuji’s 5th station, as it is accessible by bus and does not involve any climbing.
From Fuji’s 5th station you will see the amazing view of lake Kawaguchiko and if it’s a clear day, you can even see the Japanese Alps from here! Breathe in the crisp mountain air while snapping up some cute Fuji souvenirs after we have visited the shrine and bought a fortune. Hopefully it will be a good one and remember… if it comes true you need to come back to thank the Gods. :)
After visiting the most iconic landmark in Japan we will show you the best spots to see the mountain from and enjoy the surrounding nature. We will go to another vantage point by cable car from where you can snap the most amazing pictures of the mountain. The way back we can either take the stairs and pass through a lovely hydrangea park (blooming in June), or we can take the cable car back.
From here we will go to a little art museum. Not only is the art wonderful, but the building itself is quite exquisite and looks like it comes straight out of a fairy tale.
When we have looked around in the art museum, we can show you the best vantage points to see Mt. Fuji and enjoy the local nature. In spring, there are some amazing Sakura (cherry blossom) spots, and in the autumn you can enjoy the vivid colors of Momiji (Japanese maples).
Should you go there off season and Fuji is shrouded in clouds, we can advise you of additional places to go depending on your personal interests. You will get to decide what your day will look like, and we promise, we will make it a day worth remembering!
