Tackle Mt. Fuji's challenging slopes in this summer-only, English-guided tour! Begin your climb in the afternoon, grab a quick rest at an 7th station mountain hut, then arrive at Mt. Fuji's peak in time to see the sunrise! Experience Japan's national symbol up close by climbing from Mt. Fuji's 5th station to its peak, where you'll see the sun rise over Japan. You'll begin your climb shortly after arriving at Mt. Fuji's 5th station by bus from Tokyo. This tour also includes a chance to rest at one of the mountainside huts at the 7th station before departing for the final leg of your journey to the top! The climb to the top will be well worth it for the chance to see the sunrise from Japan's highest mountain. After descending the mountain, relax in the hot springs while admiring views of Mount Fuji at Lake Yamanaka Onsen's Benifuji-no-Yu.
