Experience Japan's iconic Mt. Fuji, enjoy a nature walk around Aokigahara Forest and explore Fugaku Cave on this guided day tour from Tokyo.

Highlights
  • Visit UNESCO World Heritage-listed Mt Fuji on this day trip from Tokyo
  • Explore the mysterious Aokigahara Forest with an expert tour guide
  • See lava shelves and ice pillars of various shapes and sizes at Fugaku Cave
  • Learn more about the history and significance of the sights you visit

Description

Surround yourself with the beauty of nature on this full-day guided tour of some of Japan's most famous highlights.

Travel by a comfortable coach to the bustling Mt. Fuji's 5th station. Situated at 2300 meters (7546 ft) above sea level, this station offers a spectacular view of Mt. Fuji and the surrounding lakes. You will also see shrines, torii gates, souvenir shops as well as a few climbers preparing for their ascent.

Then, enjoy lunch at own expense at Highland Resort Hotel & Spa.

After lunch, take a shuttle to Aokigahara Forest. Also known as the Sea of Trees, this sprawling 35-square-kilometre forest is very dense, shutting out all but the natural sounds of the forest itself. After an invigorating nature walk, continue to Fugaku Wind Cave, a lava cave formed during Mt Fuji's eruption. Explore the cave with a qualified cave guide and see lava shelves and majestic ice pillars that do not melt even in summer season.

Head back to Shinjuku, Tokyo Station or Ikebukuro with your guide at the end of the tour.

I cannot overstate how much I LOVED this tour. I am usually not a tour group person, but this was the best way to get to Mt. Fuji, as well as Aokigahara (the Sea of Trees). The tour guides, Kats and Toshi, were excellent, very polite and informative, as well as easy to understand. There were only 3 of us that went to the forest and cave (and guide), which was perfect. The cave was beautiful, and definitely a favorite of my trip. Warning: the spelunking is definitely for able bodied people and is very physical. I really enjoyed my group I was with, and the day was beautiful. I had a wonderful time! Thank you!!!

I cannot overstate how much I LOVED this tour. I am usually not a tour group person, but this was the best way to get to Mt. Fuji,... as well as Aokigahara (the Sea of Trees). The tour guides, Kats and Toshi, were excellent, very polite and informative, as well as easy to understand. There were only 3 of us that went to the forest and cave (and guide), which was perfect.

The visit to mt. fuji was the low point. I was lucky enough to visit on a clear day but without climbing the mountain or viewing i...t from across the way, it was boring. We were able to drive to station 4 only. The area is just a parking lot filled with buses. Not much to see when you're on the mountain itself and the sky was too foggy to get a view of below. there are tons of people bumping into each other to get a pic of a mt. fuji sign. NOT fun! After that, we drove a short distance to a hotel for lunch. The group split up into 2. 1 group heading to another mountain to view Mt. Fuji lunch included with their package. They broke off for lunch in the hotel's restaurant, while my smaller group was allowed an 1.5 hours to grab lunch on our own before our ride to the forrest picked us up. I brought my lunch but then I found a noodle restaurant next door to the hotel and feasted on tasty udon instead. My small forrest group was then picked up by a nice tour guide in a van. we drove to our next spot, which was a parks services lot so we could dress in jumpsuits. There's also a restroom there. Then back into the van for a drive to the forrest. AMAZINGNESS after that. The forrest is still, peaceful and gorgeous. The caving was more intense than I thought it would be, which I loved. Caving is a little strenuous. Be prepared! Wear waterproof shoes with a good tread. The cave floor is solid ice with puddles a few inches deep. Most of the people in my group fell multiple times because they wore basic sneakers. You don't want to get hurt down there and it's a real possibility. It's also cold in the cave. i had on layers under my suit so my body was OK but my fingers became numb from the cold. the gloves they provide are more for gripping the walls and stabilizing yourself than for warmth. I am grateful that I had them but i wished i had brought a heat pack it stick in them. I recommend doing the all day mt. fuji/lake tour and then on a second day take a cave tour. more

Excellent program on the part of cave exploration. Mr Omari has been doing a fantastic job. We love the things were going during t...he exploration more

A really exciting, unusual, different thing to do when visiting Mt Fuji. We were meant to do the ice cave which looked pretty seda...te but on the day we had to do a 'wind cave' instead. This is more of a proper cave crawl. The kids still talk about it but my wife was intimidated by it. Our guide, Tada, made all the difference though. Funny, engaging and considerate – he was excellent. more

It was a great day's tour. Everyone was nice and friendly. It was an exciting adventure through the forest and cave.

This tour was awesome. They picked us up at the hotel and after a couple more stops, we had a brief stop at a bus station where a...nother bus took us up to Mt. Fuji. We speak almost no Japanese, but the tour guides we had spoke English well and were able to answer any questions we had.

It takes a while to get to Mt. Fuji from Tokyo (like 2.5 hours), but the tour guide made things interesting by talking about the history of Japan and Mt. Fuji. Would have been nice to have more time at the shops on Mt. Fuji, but I have to give them credit for keeping that many people (from all around the world) on schedule.

After a traditional Japanese lunch (included), we headed out with another tour guide for the forest/cave tour. At this point we split from the original group and joined a smaller group for caving. Again, the tour guide spoke English very well and was super nice/informative.

We would have liked to have seen more of Aokigahara Forest, but it was definitely cool. Super quiet and kind of spooky but more beautiful than anything else. The cave tour was also really neat. It was short but also my first time in a cave so it didn't bother me.

After a full day of exploring, we were given bus tickets and waited for a bus. The bus arrived n time but the ride was long and delayed due to traffic. The bus was not uncomfortable, but if you have a JR Rail pass, I would recommend finding a Shinkansen back to Tokyo to avoid traffic. Everything else on the tour was great!

Was a good trip although the overcast skies prohibited seeing the mountain. The caving portion was the highlight for us and we had... a great guide for it. Definitely a full day as traffic coming back into Tokyo was heavy. more
