|Mt. Fuji Extension
Japan 5 days ex Tokyo
Conquer the picturesque volcanic cone of Mt. Fuji. Watch daybreak over the land of the rising sun, sitting with fellow hikers and looking out at
spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. Add some time to soak up the sights of dynamic Tokyo and a stay in a traditional inn for
a truly iconic Japanese travel experience.
|Day 1 Tokyo
A fusion of both an ancient and modern mecca, Tokyo is one of the most amazing
cities in Asia, if not the world. On a clear day you will see Mt Fuji standing boldly in the
distance to the West of the city.
Days 2-3 Mt. Fuji
Take the bus to Kawaguchi, a town that lies at the base of Mt. Fuji and start your walk
along the oldest pilgrimage trail up the mountain. At 3,776 metres high Mt. Fuji is
Japan's tallest mountain and a national symbol. Snow-capped throughout most of the
year, views from its majestic volcanic cone are breath-taking.
Days 4-5 Tokyo
Today is at your leisure in and around Tokyo and a chance for some final sightseeing
or to indulge yourself in a rejuvenating Shiatsu massage.
