Japan's most iconic landmark, Mt Fuji is an extremely popular destination from Tokyo. Visit the UNESCO-listed mountain, see the countryside, and take in the area's scenic views on a single- or multi-day tour from the city—here are your options.
Sample all that the Mt Fuji region has to offer with a convenient full-day visit. Sit back and relax as your train or bus whisks you from the Japanese capital to the mountain area, where you can take in highlights such as Lake Ashi, the Gotemba Outlets, and Mt. Fuji's famous 5th Station. A range of private and customizable trip options offer plenty of flexibility, and you can count on being back in Tokyo later that same day.
Multi-day tours offer the opportunity to deepen your Japan knowledge and see more of the country during your excursion. Enjoy roundtrip transport from Tokyo to Mt Fuji and a handful of other Japanese cities, such as Kyoto and Nara, plus included overnight accommodations. At the mountain, you'll have enough time to take part in boat rides, shopping, and onsen (hot spring) visits.
