Mt. Fuji isn't always visible, especially when it's hazy.
Please choose the spots in the highlights you would like to visit around Kawaguchiko/ Mt. Fuji, based on your interest/preferences, your physical condition and the weather. It depends on which ones you choose, but I'll do my best to arrange it the way you can visit more than three of them.
What to Expect
You can take as much time as you want to take pictures, just relax and enjoy the view as far as we can make the bus or train back to Tokyo, instead of being rushed through like when you're in a package bus tour.
On visible days, we can enjoy the view of huge Mt. Fuji outdoors, and when we cannot have the view, we can enjoy art around the Lake Resort.
When the weather forecast won't be good enough, it's possible to change to other days if I'm available.
Flexibility is the greatest point of this tour. In case you're not departing from/returning to Tokyo, arrangements are possible.
Kawaguchiko Museum of Art and Kubota Ichiku Kimono Museum are closed on Tuesday.
I'll keep my fingers crossed, but you can NOT ALWAYS have the view of Mt. Fuji. (June is the rainy season in Japan.)
We will have better chances if you stay till twilight at the Lake area, so I wish you wouldn't have dinner reservation or other reservations afterward.
The summit is only allowed for experienced and well-trained climbers with snow gears, such as crampons etc, which this tour will not cover.
Chuo Highway buses are less expensive and reasonable, basically punctual but sometimes might get jammed.
Some are fully booked up, so advance booking is desirable. I would call them and book them. At the vending machine, you could use your credit card if you know your four-digit PIN No.
On Weekends, taking a Holiday Kaisoku (rapid train) which leaves Shinjuku at 8:14 and gets at Kawaguchiko Station at 10:28 might be safer.
It is impossible to go to all of the eight options in a day.
#1, Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba takes 40 minutes from Kawaguchiko Station and the bus comes only every 30 minute, so if you choose #1, we can only visit a few more spots.
#7, Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum will be closed at 18:00.
WEARING WALKING SHOES/SNEAKERS are recommendable, whichever options you choose.
It's a little chilly during the Lake Cruise, you will appreciate a nice jacket to keep you warm.
We will basically use buses around Lake Kawaguchi unless you're willing to pay for cabs.
The loop buses run approximately every fifteen minutes.
If you hope the tour to start or end around Kawaguchiko/Fujisan area, I will send you a new itinerary after your inquiries, so please let me know.
