●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 Lake Yamanakako Flower Park
Yamanakako Hanano Miyako Park (花の都公園) is a flower field located at the base of Mt.Fuji, near Yamanakako Lake. The park and the surrounding field are filled with seasonal flowers and visitors can enjoy the dreamlike view of Mt.Fuji with charming flowers.
●11:45 Nagaike Shinsui Park by Lake Yamanakako
This is a small park located by Lake Yamanakako with a gorgeous and stunning close view of Mt. Fuji over the lake. This is one of the best locations to take photos of the mountain with many species of wild birds as well.
●12:30 Oshino Hakkai & Lunch
Oshino Hakkai is a traditional village-like area containing eight spring ponds. Those small ponds are filled with crystal clear water that comes down from Mt. Fuji, where several kinds of colorful fish swim.
There are some restaurants in Oshino Hakkai where you can enjoy lunch. Soba noodle is one of the area’s specialty, but there are other local foods as well as tasty street shops and souvenir shops.
●13:45 Oishi Park
Oishi Park, located on the north shore of Lake Kawaguchiko, is a popular place where you can enjoy the view of lake and Mt.Fuji at once. Various flowers bloom on the promenade along the lakeside from spring to autumn.
●14:30 High-Speed Boat Ride on Lake Kawaguchi
One of the various ways to enjoy time by Lake Kawaguchi is on a boat. There are swan boats, paddling boats and cruise ships, but we highly recommend the high-speed boat. You can enjoy the panoramic view of the lake and Mt. Fuji while on a 10-15 min exciting boat ride.
●16:30 Arakura Fuji Sengen Shrine
Founded in 705, the shrine enshrines the goddess of Mt. Fuji, Konohanasakuya. Today the shrine is known as one of the most scenic place around Mt. Fuji…but be prepared! You’ll need to go up the steep steps to reach the Five-storied Pagoda!
●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.
