Tokyo - Kawaguchiko

The lake is the gateway to the Okuniwa Nature Park, which is located at the bottom half of Mount Fuji. Guests will hike through the park, observing the area’s unique flora and fauna. After the day’s exertions, respite will be provided that evening at a comfortable traditional ryokan with onsen (hot spring baths).

Day 1 - Tokyo - Kawaguchiko (D)


This morning, take an early bus to Lake Kawaguchi, an onsen resort at the base of Mt. Fuji and one of the Fuji Five Lakes. Upon arrival at Kawaguchiko Station, guests will be met by a local guide before continuing on to the Okuniwa Nature Park, which is located at the bottom half of Mt. Fuji.

Guests will hike through the park, observing the area’s unique flora and fauna. If the weather is fine, they will also be afforded commanding views of Fuji-san, which stands 3,776 meters above sea-level.

After the hike, visit Mt. Fuji’s 5th Station for lunch. This is the starting point for hikers who climb Mt. Fuji during climbing season (July and August). Guests can also purchase a postcard, which they can send from the 5th station’s post office.

The guide will escort guests back to Kawaguchiko Station, and from here, it’s a short bus/taxi ride to back to the hotel.

Tonight, guests will stay a Japanese-style room, complete with tatami (mats), shoji (rice paper) sliding doors and onsen (hot spring baths).
