“Kichi Japan made travelling through Japan easier, less stressful and undoubtedly more enjoyable. As Japan is definitely different in terms of culture and food from everything my sister and I have seen before, we were quite nervous at the start of our trip. Seeing the detailed itinerary (with maps and links for locations and hotels) put our nerves at ease.
They are extremely knowledgeable about Japanese culture and language and has created a bespoke itinerary to match our interests. At the same time, they were always ready if anything went different from the already planned schedule.
This tour definitely exceeded our expectations. Everything from planning to inside tips on where to eat was on point.
Definitely recommend booking a guided tour in each city you visit, it makes a big difference and would've learned a lot more about Kyoto if we had one as was the case with the other places we visited.
Thank you again for this unforgettable experience!”

“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.”

“We recently undertook a Backroads of Japan tour with World Expeditions. This is the third time we have used this company having undertaken both their Mont Blanc seven day trek from Chamonix and their Canadian Rockies tour. They have all been great but this Japanese trip was extraordinary. Well balanced it provided the opportunity for us to experience the main cities Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka but with a focus on the Backroads country from the Nakasendo path - the ancient pilgrim trail connecting Tokyo and Kyoto- with some stunning experiences in lesser known places around Nara and Osaka e.g. Yoshino and Dorogawa. We experienced ancient villages; stayed in authentic ryokans dating back 300-400 years; visited some truly moving shrines and temple and experienced excellent Japanese cuisine in homely settings; tracked through beautiful mountains and forests and enjoyed marvelous relaxing onsens. Our guide was superb and made us all feel at home as she enthusiastically provided us with a locals view of this beautiful country. Highly recommended!!!”

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.
