Hakone National Park & Mt Fuji Views
This tour is a great opportunity for a close-up view of one of the most recognizable landmarks of Japan—Mt Fuji—viewed from Hakone National Park. You will also visit the popular resort town of Hakone. Drive to Hakone for a lovely view of Mt Fuji from one of the boats that ply the waters of Lake Ashi, located at the foot of the mountain. After lunch at a local restaurant, you will transfer to the Mt Komagatake Aerial Cableway, where your guide will lead you up a stairway to an observation platform providing a panoramic view of Mt Fuji, weather permitting. You will also visit the Hakone Open-Air Museum, which contains numerous sculptures by artists from all over the world. The museum is especially known for its collection of 26 pieces by Henry Moore, including one that is more than 13 feet tall. The sculpted beauty of the art creates a stark contrast with the natural surroundings.
Although this excursion takes you to one of the best locations for viewing Mt Fuji, the mountain is often shrouded in clouds and views cannot be guaranteed.
