Travel by coach to see the majestic mountains and lakes of Fuji-Hakone National Park. See some sights around Tokyo as you drive away from the city, enjoy Japanese-style bento box lunch and learn about Mount Fuji at the Visitor Center.
The main highlight of this day trip from Tokyo is, of course, the iconic Mount Fuji. Known worldwide as the symbol of Japan, it is inscribed in UNESCO World Heritage list for its outstanding universal value. Go up until the Kawaguchiko 5th Station, 2,300m above sea level, where you can enjoy the view of the surrounding mountains and lakes around Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. This stop is the location of the Komitake Shrine, located behind the shops, and also serves as starting point for the hikers making the pilgrimage to Mount Fuji's summit.
A pleasure boat cruise will take you across Hakone's Lake Ashinoko (you should be able to spot Fujisan's famous snow-capped peak and the red torii lakeside landmark of Hakone Shrine) before you disembark to go ride the Komagatake Ropeway. Take in the natural scenery from your cable car up high as you go up and down Mount Komagatake before boarding the coach for the trip back to Tokyo.
