Self Guided Adventure


Views of Mount Fuji (Group Tour Add-On)

4 Nights: from US$975 per person (twin share) Trip Code: AOVMFC

Winter is one of the best times to see the elusive Mount Fuji, so how about taking a trip to the hot spring resort of Hakone for superb views of Japan's iconic mountain - and fit in some relaxation time while you're there. Read more >

Your Small Group Tour Winter Highlights finishes in Tokyo, but why not extend your time in Japan with a Self-Guided trip to Hakone to see Mount Fuji?

You've explored the icy reaches of Hokkaido and visited the ancient temples and shrines of Japan's old capital Kyoto, so now it's time for you to travel independently from Tokyo to the Hakone region for two nights, then back to Tokyo for a further two night stay.

Hakone National Park is just to the southeast of Mount Fuji, and the winter season is one of the best times to catch a glimpse of the elusive mountain with its crown of snow. Owing to its location along a valley between steep hills, Hakone is a long and winding hot spring town requiring a small network of buses, cable cars, and funicular railways to get around. You will be provided with the Hakone Free Pass which can be used on all of the public transport in the region, including the enjoyable boat cruise across Lake Ashi - keep your fingers crossed for a view of Mount Fuji from across the lake. We've arranged for you to have a final stay in a traditional ryokan where you will be able to soak in the restorative waters and dine privately in your room.

After two relaxing days in the hot springs and tranquil scenery of Hakone, it's back to Tokyo for a final two nights in the vibrant Shinjuku area before heading out to the airport for your flight home.

This extension package is designed to be bolted on to one of our Small Group Tours. It works best when combined with Winter Highlights. Please note that the extension is Self-Guided. This means you will not be travelling in a group or with a tour leader, but full instructions including details of your journeys and directions to your accommodation will be included in your complimentary InsideJapan Tours' Info-Pack.
