Our tour day was a BIG LET DOWN. After several months of planning and anticipation, THE DAY was finally upon us! Unfortunately, it rained and so our trip ended before it even began. The bus had to turn around at the First Station and we headed to lunch at a nearby resort. After lunch, the tour company unilaterally implemented its Plan B. First, we rode on a dilapidated boat around a lake that was covered by rain and mist, so we couldn't really enjoy any scenery. Also, we were crowded and wet. Then, we were taken to a museum to look at works by contemporary Japanese artists. After the museum visit, the bus brought us back to Ginza by 6 pm, on what was clearly an abbreviated all-day tour. I think the tour company could've presented better options in the event of rain. Would we like to cut our losses, return to Tokyo, and receive a partial refund? Or, continue touring and heres what they suggest? The rain is not the fault of one party, but the downside result was borne only by us. At least the tour company shouldve given us options, and shouldve graciously offered partial refunds, or offered to reschedule us for the following day or two. Nothing wrong with the boat ride or paintings, but these weren't what we signed up for, hence the disappointment. We should've been given options to do something else with our limited vacation time.

what to expect

Start your full-day trip with morning hotel pickup at select hotels and locations in Tokyo and then travel by air-conditioned coach via a scenic 2.5-hour route to Mt Fuji's 5th Station, located 7,607 feet (2,305 meters) above sea level.

The natural beauty of the Japanese landscape will amaze you at your first destination: Mt Fuji. Learn about Mt Fuji through displays and films on the ecology, weather conditions, history and culture around the mountain and the Fuji Five Lakes. Your 20-minute stop includes the second-floor observatory deck, which provides up-close views of the iconic mountain on a clear day.

Return to your coach and continue on to 5th Station, located about halfway up the mountain, for more breathtaking views of the surrounding lakes. You have 30 minutes to explore the souvenir shops, torii gates and shrines that decorate this station, known as the border between the heavens and the earth. Later enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.

With your appetite sated, drive to nearby Lake Ashi, a crater lake formed after a powerful volcanic eruption nearly 3,000 years ago in what is now Hakone National Park. Embark on a 15-minute cruise over Lake Ashi, which provides postcard views of Mt Fuji, Mt Komagatake and other mountains from various angles.

From the lake's shores, take the Mt Komagatake Ropeway to the summit and enjoy scenic vistas over Hakone National Park. For 50 minutes, including time to walk around at the peak, the aerial tram provides sweeping views of majestic Mt Fuji, the Izu Peninsula and the Izu Islands, among other sights. Your tour concludes with a coach transfer back to the Tokyo area around 8:30pm.
