Visit the hidden treasures of the Mt Fuji World Heritage area.

This special tour will take you to many of the sights that are missed by most visitors. Travel to Mt Fuji’s 5th station with an English-speaking guide by bus to enjoy the magnificent view from 2,300 meters above sea level.

Afterwards, journey to Oshino Hakkai, a quaint picturesque village in the heart of the heritage area. Drink fresh spring water directly from the source as you meander past one of its crystal-clear ponds.

Stand in the vicinity of Shiraito Falls, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Japan. It is especially majestic in autumn surrounded by the red and orange leaves.

Finish your tour with the unique Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine, one of the most important shrines in the Mt. Fuji Area. Once at the ‘front entrance’ of the mountain, enjoy the serenity of the Shrine itself, which has protected the historic area from volcanic eruptions through the centuries.

Visit 4 of the must-see spots around the base of Mt. Fuji, Japan’s tallest peak.

Enjoy the cherry blossoms and the autumn colours at Fujisan Hongu Sengen Shrine and Shiraito Falls.
