●8:00 Leaving the hotel: Your driver will come to your hotel to pick you up.
●10:00 Mt. Fuji 5th Level Station
The Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station is placed in the middle of the mountain trail. After going up through a scenic toll road, you will reach the station where you can enjoy the view from the mountain at 2300 meters above sea level.
There is also an easy mountain trail (45min-1.5h), which is best for those who want to feel like they are hiking on the mountain but do not actually intend to climb it.
●11:00 Kachi Kachi Ropeway
This “Ropeway” or cable car is located by the famous Lake Kawaguchi, and it’ll take you to the top of a small mountain where you can enjoy another panoramic view of the lake, Mt. Fuji and other areas around. This is very beautiful and enjoyable when the weather is nice!
If you are not tired, you can choose to walk down the hill by taking the trail through the mountain. It takes around 40min and you can enjoy refreshing walk through woods.
●12:30 Lunch at a Local Restaurant
There are some unique local foods in the area, and “Yoshida Ueodn” is one of them. The noodle is thicker and more chewy than normal udon noodles, and the soup has a faint plavor of miso. This udon is typically served with boiled cabbage.
There are options for toppings: tempra, seasoned meat, eggs, etc. This is another type of food that you can only enjoy in the area.
●13:30 Saiko Iyashi-no-Sato
This is a former Japanese village, now preserving old traditional Japanese houses. Those old houses are truly worth seeing, but this place is special because you can enjoy the view with Mt. Fuji! If you come this spot in spring, you can also enjoy cherry blossoms too!
●15:00 Fuji Shibazakura Festival (mid-April to mid-May)
In each years this place near Mt. Fuji gets filled with throusands of pink flowers in spring. This is not cherry blossoms, but amazingly beautiful especially when seen with the view of Mt. Fuji. You can’t miss the pink carpet of flowers, this is only open during spring!
●16:30 Leaving Mt. Fuji: Time to say goodbye to Mt. Fuji and start heading back to Tokyo.
●18:00 Arriving at your hotel: Your driver will safely take you back to your accommodation.
*As it’s a little far from the central area of Tokyo, it is highly recommended to book “10h One-Day Tour” to visit Mt. Fuji area.
