“The most memorable part of our trip was walking in the countryside - seeing parts of Japan that I would never have discovered on my own and being guided by a reliable expert.Asuka, Dorogawa and the Mitarai Gorge were particularly memorable. Also - wonderful exotic food, charming ryokans and soothing onsens. (And the company of like-minded fellow travellers). We stayed at family-run ryokans and experienced genuine locally sourced food, which was fresh, delicious and exquisitely prepared. This was an excellent trip. The tour guide, Alena, was an expert on Japan and made our trip very enjoyable and stress-free.”

“This was a fantastic way to explore Japan and its wonderful culture. We spent time in the big cities but for me the best part was going out on the "Backroads". The walks, the scenery and the calmness was so enjoyable. I especially liked walking by the waterfalls, rivers and waterways. We were made to feel welcome where ever we went, the food was amazing and I got used to sleeping on the floor! A trip I would highly recommend.”

Mount Fuji - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Mount Fuji Tour Highlights

  • Tackle the mighty Mount Fuji and make life long memories on an epic Mount Fuji trek with a local guide that takes you right to the summit.
  • After hiking Mount Fuji spend some time in the surrounding Fuji Five Lakes region to enjoy the lake strolls, watersports, and spectacular mountain views.
  • Soak up spectacular views of Mount Fuji from Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, an area famous for its panoramic vistas and bubbling hot springs.
  • If a Mount Fuji hike is a little daunting to you then take the shortest route among the four routes to the peak of Mount Fuji and ride a cable car to the station before enduring the final part of the summit to the peak.
  • Stroll around the city of Fujinomiya found at the base of Mount Fuji before you begin your ascent. Here you’ll find museums, memorials, and numerous accommodation options.

Mount Fuji Travel Tips

  • Make sure you pack something warm to wear when you reach the summit of the mountain, particularly if you’re going up for sunrise or sunset. The temperatures at the top can drop quickly and the winds bring in a chill.
  • Pace yourself! While you might have tackled a number of mountains in your own country or around the globe, always listen to your Mount Fuji tour guide when it comes to pacing yourself. There’s no fun in burning yourself out and having to turn back.
  • Getting to Mount Fuji from Tokyo is fairly simply, but consider purchasing a Japan Travel pass in advance to save money on train fares. The pass must be purchased before you enter the country and offers unlimited use of the Japan train system for a one-off fee.
  • If you’re a beginner hiker, opt for the Yoshida Trail as the route is equipped with three rescue stations. Also, don’t forget to bring loose change for the toilets.
  • The Mount Fuji climbing season runs between 1st July and mid-September though each route opening times vary slightly, always check this beforehand.
