Navigating Japan’s public transport system can often be a daunting task. Let a guide do the work for you on this tour of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi by coach and bullet train, which saves you hours in travel time. Ascend to the Mt. Fuji’s 5th Station; ride on the Komagatake Ropeway, one of Japan’s highest aerial tramways; and take a cruise on Lake Ashi, part of Hakone National Park.
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.
Return to Tokyo by bullet train.
