Mt. Fuji and Hakone Day Tour from Tokyo, Japan

THINGS TO DO IN TOKYO JAPAN TRAVEL GUIDE

Planning your Tokyo itinerary? Don't forget to visit Mt. Fuji and Hakone!


I’ve been to Japan twice. The first time was when we visited Nagoya in 2015 and then again in 2016 when had wonderful trip in Osaka and Kyoto. But I've never been to Tokyo. So, I promised myself that one day, I will visit the amazing city of Tokyo. That is why, when I was given the chance to visit Japan again last month, I quickly booked a flight to Tokyo. Yey!

As most people would recommend, if there is one landmark in Tokyo you shouldn't miss - that would definitely the Mount Fuji. And we're so excited for this trip because we included it in our Tokyo itinerary! We'll be seeing Mt. Fuji up close. Yey!

For ease and convenience, me and my friend decided to avail a packaged day tour to Mt. Fuji and Hakone. The packaged tour also includes transportation from Tokyo, lunch buffet, English-speaking guide, free unlimited WiFi onboard, and transportation back to Tokyo. And we’re just grateful that we decided to get a packaged tour from Klook.com because it is indeed convenient and hassle-free.

Mt. Fuji, Japan's Iconic Landmark


Mt. Fuji is an iconic landmark in Japan. Commonly called "Fuji-san," it is an active volcano located about 100 kilometers southwest of the city of Tokyo. Standing at 3,776 meters above sea level, it is considered as the tallest peak in Japan.

As one of Japan's 3 sacred mountains and a pigrimage site, hiking its summit is considered as one of the popular activities at Mt. Fuji. But for tourists and for those who just want to see it up close, a Mt. Fuji day tour is good enough to be mesmerized by its beauty and unique charm.

The trip to Mt. Fuji takes about 3 hours, with bathroom breaks in between. But the trip wasn't boring at all, because our tour guide named Hiro kept up entertained as we travel while he shares some facts about Mt. Fuji. The chartered bus is also comfortable which made the long drive less dreadful. The best thing is also catching the stunning views outside. And seeing Mt. Fuji from time to time peeking from the mountain ranges, makes me really excited!

Our itinerary is a visit to Mt. Fuji's 5th station at an elevation of 2,300 meters. But since there was an avalanche warning during our visit, we only got to reach the mountain's 4th station at an elevation of 2,020 meters above sea level. But it's still good! At least, we got to climb it. In some cases, tourists are not allowed to get in due to bad weather. We're still lucky to got up to the 4th station.

At the 4th station, we got to see breathtaking views of the mountains covered with snow! It's really amazing! Since this is my first time to see snow, I am so delighted and played with them! I've been wanting to experience winter and see snow. And this is definitely a dream come true for me!

After about 30 minutes, we boarded the bus, went down from Mt. Fuji and proceeded to a restaurant for our buffet lunch. It is already included in the package tour, so you don't have to shell out extra money for lunch. The lunch was superb and we were really full after.

Mt. Komagatake Ropeway


After about 30 minutes, we reached the station where we took the Mt. Komagatake Ropeway going up to the Fuji Hakone Isu National Park with an elevation of 1,327 meter above sea level. The gondola is full and crowded with tourists wanting to going up. But it's okay, the view from the outside is truly amazing and I really didn't mind the crowded gondola.
