●9:00 Arakurayama Fuji Sengen Shrine

This site, together with the Chureitou (pagoda), cherry blossoms, and Mt. Fuji, provides the most iconic image of Japan’s tallest mountain. If not the most beautiful, it is certainly the most popular image of Mt. Fuji. However, to be rewarded with this absolutely magnificent view, there will be a price to pay, for the stroll in Arakura will be by far the most physically strenuous activity of the tour. You must deal with 398 steps using your own legs. There are no elevators, escalators, or gismo of any kind to assist you. If you are suffering from hip, leg, knee, or ankle injuries, it is recommended that you wait in the car while others in your group take on the challenge of climbing the steps.
