Tokyo - Kawaguchiko

Leave behind bustling Tokyo for the serene Lake Kawaguchiko, the most beautiful of the Fuji Five Lakes. Alongside your local guide you will explore Okuniwa Nature Park on a hike culminating with sensational views from Mt Fuji's 5th station. Here you can enjoy lunch before sending a postcard back home! Combining soft adventure with a dash of culture, you will have the opportunity to visit the area's impressive collection of art galleries that comprise classic and contemporary exhibits. During this 2-day Lake Kawaguchiko and onsen tour you will enjoy the delights of traditional accommodation, dining and of course, customary hot baths!

Day 1 - Tokyo - Kawaguchiko (D)

This morning take an early bus to Lake Kawaguchiko, an onsen resort at the base of Mt Fuji and one of the Fuji Five Lakes. On arrival at Kawaguchiko station, you will meet your local guide and continue on to Okuniwa Nature Park, located on the bottom half of Mt Fuji. 

You will hike through the Park, observing the area’s unique flora and fauna. If the weather is fine, you will also have commanding views of Fuji-san, standing 3,776 meters about sea level. 

After the hike, visit Mt Fuji’s 5th station for lunch. This is the starting point for hikers who climb Mt Fuji during climbing season (July and August). You will also receive a postcard, which you can send from the 5th station’s post office. 

The guide will escort you back to Kawaguchiko station around 2:30pm, from here it a short bus/taxi ride to your accommodation. 

Tonight you will stay in Japanese-style ryokan accommodation, complete with tatami mats, shoji rice paper sliding doors and onsen hot spring baths. This evening, relax in your yukata, or lightweight kimono, and dine on a sumptuous kaiseki multi course meal, served by kimono clad waitresses. 

A soak in one of the ryokan’s numerous onsen hot spring baths is highly recommended before you bed down on your futon. 

Overnight in Kawaguchiko

Day 2 - Kawaguchiko - Tokyo (B)

After breakfast, you have time to explore the Lake Kawaguchi area. 

There are some intersting museums including the Kubota Itchiku Museum, a unique museum that displays kimono created by Kubota Itchiku. The kimono on display depict themes of nature and the cosmos and include his unfinished masterpiece "Symphony of Light", comprised of 80 kimono that together form a picture of Mount Fuji. 

The Kawaguchiko Museum of Art houses rotating temporary exhibitions of Japanese and foreign modern artists as well as a small permanent collection of paintings and photographs featuring Mount Fuji. 

You can also take a boat ride on the lake, or ride the Kachi Kachi Ropeway to an observation point near the summit of Mount Tenjo, from where Lake Kawaguchiko and Mount Fuji can be seen.
