What to Expect
Mt. Fuji is well known across the world. It is the highest mountain in Japan and was designated as a World cultural heritage site in 2013. You can enjoy the mountain not only by climbing it, but by visiting places around the mountain.
In this tour, we’ll visit Fujinomiya Sengen shrine where we will learn about the worship of Mt. Fuji as a sacred mountain. Local people have been blessed with abundant pure groundwater from Mt. Fuji which is important for agriculture and other industries in the area. An example of this is sake, where the taste depends on the purity of the water used. Our visits include a Sake brewery.
And we’ll visit a green tea house as well. Shizuoka is the biggest tea producer in Japan and has many production areas across the prefecture. Depending on the weather, the view of tea fields in front of Mt. Fuji is spectacular to see. Let’s enjoy a magnificent view over a cup of tea!
