The tour will start from either “Hotel Gracery Shinjuku” or “Shinjuku Washington Hotel”. The tour will first head to Mt. Fuji 5th station, where the tour bus will drive up to 2300 meters above the sea level by Subaru Line. You will be amazed by the breathtaking panoramic views from the observatory. Not only will you see the grand view of the foot of the mountain, but you will also be able to see the majestic Mt Fuji. Appreciate the beauty as you take a 50-minute walk around the area.

Next, you will head to a restaurant near Lake Kawaguchi. The Yamanashi specialty 'Hoto Hot Pot' noodles and fried chicken will be served for lunch. (*No beef or pork. Vegetarian meal is also available if requested at least 5 days in advance.) Enjoy the local food and if you finish lunch early, stroll around the area until the bus departs.

The tour will then head to the Mt. Fuji Panoramic Ropeway, where you will take a short ride to the observatory, which is perfectly located to see a full view of Mt. Fuji. You will have around 20 minutes at the observatory. Do not miss the chance to take photos of the mountain. You will take the ropeway on the way back to the bus park as well.

Later, the bus will take you to a fruit farm in the small town near "Enzan" for luscious cherries, or in “Misaka” famous for its plump grapes and succulent seasonal fruits. Enjoy locally produced seasonal fruits as much as you wish for approx. 30 minutes. [*Cherry picking is available from May 15th until June 19th.
