This was a great trip and one for my travel "bucket list". Everything went very smoothly from the start (our hotel pick up was on time), to knowledgeable tour guide to the weather. During the trip to the mountain our tour guide provided explanations of many aspects of Mount Fuji (the sacredness to the Shinto religion as well as secular data on geological and volcanic aspects). Once at station 5 (end of the road) we had plenty of time to see the sights. The following lunch was great and the return trip on the bullet train was well organized. Sorry, I am not able to provide a picture of the train, it was just too fast. This trip is highly recommended!

We had a limited time in Japan so this was a good way to see quite a bit in a day. The people that got us at the hotel were great and the van was deluxe. Our tour guide on the bus did a nice job explaining things and giving history. It was a sunny morning so we had great views of mt Fuji etc.

We were very fortunate as the weather was so clear. We can see Fujiyama so clear. The guide,Shin San was excellent, he explained a lot of little things that makes Japan is so unique and wonderful.
Shin San and the two drivers (I am sorry I could not catch their names) were extremely polite and helpful.
Highly recommended !!!!

Amazing, scenic bus ride. Had to take a weather detour trip after seeing mt Fuji (because of rain and fog), but lake Kawaguchiko was stunning. Our tour guide, Hiro-San, was knowledgeable, upbeat and very helpful. Side note: best time to see Mt. Fuji is in November when the sky is more clear

This tour packs in a great deal and does it so well. This is the best run tour I have ever been on. We went early January and were lucky to have crystal clear weather so the views of Mt. Fuji were outstanding. The Japanese lunch was excellent as was the gondola ride and the lake cruise. Our tour guide (in English) was excellent and our driver a true professional. I recommend this tour.

Seeing Mt Fuji was incredible. It was a bit disappointing though that you end up in a parking lot by the side of the road. I expected more than to park and have to navigate the buses, cars and people to get a view off the mountain. Taking pictures further away was better. Lunch was ok - you stop at an amusement park though and I would of preferred to explore the park and go on a few rides than eat lunch (you do not get much time). Hakone Komagatake was incredible and actually I preferred this stop over Mt Fuji. The views are outstanding! We really enjoyed this tour and as I said seeing Mt Fuji was just breathtaking. Would recommend this tour to couples and families alike.

Met the guide Mayoumi at the Courtyard hotel Ginza. 5 mins from the metro. There is a Denny's on the other side of the road if you wish to take breakfast. We left Tokyo by coach passing a few of their sporting stadiums including the Olympic stadium. The coach took us to the Mount Fuji 5th station .The views from below were not good because of the haze but the summit was in full view once we reached the 5th station. You have free time there to take in the views or shop at the souvenir shops
Our next stop was lunch at Lake Hakone .We then went to Lake Ashi for a boat ride and the a cable car ride up Mount Komagatake. The top was shrouded in mist so we did not get great views. You have
a tiny bit of three time to walk round the stop . The mist cleared a bit so that you could see the
Pacific.We then transferred to the train station for the bullet ride(35 mins)back to Tokyo. A wonderful day guided excellently by Mayoumi who was a wealth of information. Probably seeing the summit of Mount Fuji helped make the day better. A great trip

Eriko was our guide and was fun, friendly and gave us plenty of information with cute diagrams she had made.
We were lucky to have a clear, sunny day so the views of Mt. Fuji were spectacular. But due to the icy road we only made it to Station 4. By that time visibility was bad and we could not see anything from up there.
Lake Ashi is beautiful and one could image it in the warmer months, the cruise was short and sweet. The boat takes you to the Komagatake Ropeway. Mt. Komagatake has some walking paths and more amazing views of Owakudani volcanic valley and Mt Fuji and the lake. But here we only had time for a few photos would have been nice to take our time.
The bullet train (Shinkansen) was a great way to finish the day.
There is no time for anything on this tour, hardly enough time to take in the views and take a photo before you need to move on to the next thing. As Eriko said it’s 2 days into 1! The Lunch Buffet was rather disappointing it looked good but was stone cold and tasteless, however, they had individual ramen style noodle cooking in front of you was a lovely touch and very tasty. It states in “What to Expect” that if you do not opt for the lunch option that you will have time to purchase food, well I’m glad with opted for +lunch because there was no time at all, after all we weren’t there for the food!
Even with all the limited time allotted to the various places, I still think it was a great day and a taste of what we could do on our own should we return.

Due to the weather and road conditions whole plan’s changed, we went to another lake and rope way nearby, stopped 10 minutes at Mt. Fuji car park:) It was a nice trip in general. Buffet lunch was great, the tour guide Yoko was helpful.

Transportation is very convenient in Japan. If you have time, travel on your own to spend more time at the attractions you are interested. This trip is mostly spent on the way with maximum 10-20 minutes stops at the attractions.
