What you'll do

One of Japan’s three sacred mountains, the snow-capped Mount Fuji is striking from all angles. You’ll get the chance to see it from across the shimmering waters of Lake Ashinoko, and from remote locations only accessible via the enchanting Hakone Ropeway, which you’ll get the chance to enjoy, if you’d like. Discover why Mount Fuji has a special place in Japanese culture through your host’s wealth of local, generational knowledge - you can’t get that in a guidebook, can you? The region’s lush greenery will give you all the tranquility you crave, granting you some much-needed rest from the perpetual motion of Tokyo, but if you’re truly desperate to unwind, why not bare it all at a traditional onsen hot spring? No peeking!

Where you’ll go

There’s a lot going on in Japan’s bustling capital, where 14 million people live out their lives. But step into the countryside, and you’ll discover another side of Japanese culture. Your host will lead you on a luxurious (and express) Romancecar train journey from Tokyo to the peaceful hamlet of Hakone, where your Mt Fuji pilgrimage begins. The foothills of the iconic - and active - volcano are home to a section of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park, a collection of protected areas that encompass lakes, islands, and a remarkable breadth of natural beauty. In Hakone, you’ll be able to bag unique curios, before wandering along the many walking trails of the national park itself, where the lines between folklore and truth are often obscured…

    • See some of the most famous views of Mount Fuji from across Lake Ashinoko
