Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Mt Fuji Day Trip including Lake Ashi Sightseeing Cruise from Tokyo submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
We didn't know what to expect, but we were sure glad that we took this trip. The forecast was for rain in the afternoon, but we were lucky and was able to see the top of Mt. Fuji since we got there by 11:30am or so. We had lunch at the nearby hotel, and it was the typical Japanese bento and very good. Afterwards when we went to ride the boat on Lake Ashi, it began to rain. The boat was big and covered so it was no problem. We did get wet when we had to walk to the aerial cableway to ride to the top of Mt. Komagatake. We weren't lucky here since we couldn't see anything due to the rain. After a short time, we rode back and down and had time to shop. Afterwards it was time to go back down the mountain. We were supposed to go back to Tokyo by bus, but since I wasn't feeling well we took the Shinkansen so it was a quicker ride back. We did have to pay extra, but that was okay. Overall, this trip is worth it and the guide Mariko was the best! She speaks English fluently and even has a great sense of humor.Reviewed by: moosepark, South Korea, April 2013
We were very lucky to see Mt Fuji on a clear day which was amazing. The day trip was well planned, the guide very informative, and the coach comfortable. We especially enjoyed the cable car ride and the lunch provide was delicious.Reviewed by: Mrs Gwen M N, Australia, April 2013
All was very well organized which was not to my surprise being here in Japan. The road trip to Mt. Fuji went very well except for some little disturbances on the bus.........2 guys sitting behind us talking loud all the way through (non-stop) and that was quite annoying as the guide was talking us through on the trip and that was a bit of a nuisance. In mentioning the guide (Nicknamed Fish) he surely knows his stuff and I will give him my credit. The weather was unfortunately not too much in our favour. On the 5th station stop it was all cloudy and Mt. Fuji was surely shy to show her peak ! On the way down we managed to get some nice shots. Overall the trip was worth it except for the lunch......it was way below my expectation.Reviewed by: J A BUTLER B, April 2013
Due to bad weather we were only able to go to viewing station 4 rather than 5 at Mt Fuji so the views were not quite so good. Also on the cable car the cloud was so low we couldn't see anything from the top.
The Lake ashi cruise is a bit short.
It was goodReviewed by: Quynh Chi N, April 2013
