Mt Fuji Aokigahara Forest and Cave Exploring from Tokyo

    What to Expect
    For anyone short on time, this combination Mount Fuji and forest day trip is the perfect way to sample of the scenic beauty of Japan’s great outdoors. You will be picked up in the morning and start heading towards the snow-capped Mount Fuji, Japan’s most-famous peak.

    Upon arrival at the 5th Station, the highest point reachable on Mt Fuji by vehicle, take the next 30 to 40 minutes to savor the breathtaking views, camera at-the-ready, or check out the on-site gift shop for a souvenir.

    The second half of your day begins at the Sea of Trees, known officially as Aokigahara Forest. The striking landscape is the result of thousands of years of volcanic activity, creating the area’s exposed lava flows, exposed tree roots and eerie caves formed by explosions of volcanic gas. The day’s final activity takes you on an adventure inside Narusawa Ice Cave with a local guide, an activity normally off-limits to most visitors. Your insider’s exploration weaves through the slippery surfaces of this subterranean space, revealing the cave’s surreal ice formations.

    End your tour with a drop-off at the bus stop of the Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park to wait for a bus back to Tokyo, with a ticket given to you by your guide. Pass the time with activities including bowling, a gift shop and concession stand. Take the two-hour bus ride back to Tokyo and continue the fun.

    Well, it’s not the best view and the bus ride is long and winding. So probably deserves a 3, but you must see Mt. Fuji. And the best part was the Aokigahara Forest caving hike!! It was an eerie and unique forest (suicide forest). Very...More
