Tokyo - Kawaguchiko

Leave behind bustling Tokyo for the serene Lake Kawaguchiko, the most beautiful of the Fuji Five Lakes. Alongside your local guide you will explore Okuniwa Nature Park on a hike culminating with sensational views from Mt Fuji's 5th station. Here you can enjoy lunch before sending a postcard back home! Combining soft adventure with a dash of culture, you will have the opportunity to visit the area's impressive collection of art galleries that comprise classic and contemporary exhibits. During this 2-day Lake Kawaguchiko and onsen tour you will enjoy the delights of traditional accommodation, dining and of course, customary hot 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 your arrival at Kawaguchiko Station, your local guide will meet you and together you will continue on to the Okuniwa Nature Park, which is located at the bottom half of Mt. Fuji.


You will hike through the Park, observing the area’s unique flora and fauna. If the weather is fine, you will also have commanding views of Fuji-san, standing at 3,776 meters about 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). You can also purchase a postcard, which you can send from the 5th station’s post office.


The guide will escort you back to Kawaguchiko Station, and from here, it’s a short bus/taxi ride to your accommodation.


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