Few other Japanese sites are as iconic as Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest peak and one of the country’s “Three Holy Mountains.” This 12,389-foot (3,776-meter) active volcano is known for its near-perfect conical shape and regarded as a semi-deity in Japanese Shinto religion. Some believe it possesses its own soul.
Mount Fuji is visible for hundreds of miles in every direction so there are plenty of great vantage points from which to admire it. In Tokyo, make your way to the top of the Bunkyo Civic Center or the Tokyo Skytree, both offering stunning views of the mountain towering beyond Tokyo’s skyscrapers. Visibility is best during early morning and late evening, particularly during the colder seasons. Fuji’s classic snowcapped peak is typically clearest from November to May.
Sit on the right side of the train during a journey from Tokyo to Osaka for another prime opportunity to see this famous peak. Take a daytrip from Tokyo to the Fuji Five Lakes region on Mount Fuji’s northern slopes for views of the mountain in a picturesque natural setting.
For an even closer look, journey to the Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station, the most popular of the four 5th stations located on the mountain’s slopes. Aside from occasional snow closures, this spot can be reached year-round via public transportation directly from Tokyo. From the 5th station, you will see the mountain’s peak as well as views over the Fuji Five Lakes area below.
It is believed that Mt. Fuji was first climbed in the 8th century. Hike to the summit today in 5 to 7 hours with a 3- to 4-hour return.

More than 300,000 locals and tourists make this memorable trek each year, many planning to reach the peak for a splendid sunrise.

Situated in the mountains, this lodge is within 3 mi (5 km) of Shiraito Falls, Kiseki Museum of World Stones, and Waketamaike Spring. Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine and Taiseki-ji Temple are also within 6 mi (10 km).
You definitely should include dinner (half board), if you are not planning to travel far on the day you checked in. Dinner and breakfast buffet is lavish. Hotel is a distance from Mt Fuji 5th station, but you can still plan to go there after your 3pm check-in. We could only go Gotemba Premium Outlet ...
Property is a bit far from Kawaguchiko Station but hotel provides pickup service from train station to hotel which is really good.
Nice hotel if you just want to relax. Location is in the middle of nowhere. There are no restaurants close by and the hotel restaurant is overpriced. Overall a very nice place to enjoy and relax. Location is not good for sight seeing the area.
Staff was wonderful. A small wardrobe or closet or anywhere to put luggage in room would benefit international travelers. Two towels per guest rather than one would be preferred given using onsen in room utilizes towels along with regular bathing. Facilities were very clean and food was excellent. ...
Still brand new property. Very clean and comfortable, especially for the price. We found it last minute as we decided to stay closer to Mt. Fuji to hike the next morning.
