Our tour departs directly from your hotel or accommodations in Tokyo. You will be returned to this same spot at the conclusion of the tour as well, making the entire experience a comfortable one indeed!
The tour will then proceed west toward Mt. Fuji. Our experience with Mt. Fuji is expansive, so we'll be sure to provide a few insights that will go well with our provided tour booklet for this trip given to each of our tour participants. These booklets will be available in your private vehicle when you board in the morning. Tour participants are strongly encouraged to ask questions about the area, as keen travelers will be aware that the space between Tokyo and Mt. Fuji holds a wealth of history as well.
Our first stop will be the Arakura Sengen Shrine, a vantage point that provides absolutely stunning scenic views of the mountain all year long. Although a cloudy day can prevent travelers from witnessing the full beauty of the mountain, cloud formations change often around Mt. Fuji and glimpses regularly become available from this location.
Next on the tour will be Oshino Hakkai, a spot that has become more and more popular over the last few years, for very obvious reasons! The views from this traditional village are spectacular, and provide an assortment of photograph opportunities that you will be admiring for years to come. This is also the location of one of our favorite restaurants in the area, and tour participants will be given a wide range of soba choices that are sure to impress.
The tour then proceeds around Lake Kawaguchi, giving everyone in your private group an opportunity to witness another side of Mt. Fuji. The flowers that bloom along the northern shores are especially memorable, and the group is encouraged to stop as much as it likes to to get all the shots it needs!
There are a few more surprises in store for our guests, so please feel free to ask us any questions you might have. We sincerely look forward to hearing from you!
