Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan! Located in the middle of the Hoshu Archipelago, it has been regarded for a long time as divine, and as the symbol of spirituality of the Japanese people. There are 25 locations registered as part of the UNESCO World Heritage of Mount Fuji, or Fujisan, and it has been in the list since 2013, so both the Fuji and its surrounding areas are full of incredibly beautiful landscapes.  So come onboard for this two day tour to explore the natural heritage, perfect as a complement to your visit of Tokyo, as it is just a 2 hour drive from there.

The tour is perfectly adapted for wheelchair users and slow walkers by local agency Ohayo Travel, and comprises outdoors activities for all ages.

Itinerary

Day 1From Tokyo to Fujisan

We will visit the Fujiyoshida, Oshi Residence, the gate of Mt. Fuji.  The Oshi residence is one of the sites constituting the world heritage of Mr. Fuji.  The house is lodging for pilgrims and the owner was a preacher and worshipper of the god of Mt. Fuji.

Then on to the Kitaguchihongu Fuji Sengenjinja shrine: it is said that the shrine was built around 1200 years ago, to calm the anger of the gods of Mt. Fuji, as there was a large scale eruption in the late 7th century. We will then visit Oshino Hakkai, a small village that has 8 small ponds made of Mt. Fuji snow-melt wells and finally the Yamanakako Lake, the largest of the 5 lakes of the Fuji area.

You will spend the night at the Fuji Lake Hotel, located in Kawaguchiko Lake, with accessibility facilities, and with an Onsen hot spring!

Day 2Fujisan and back

Today we will explore more parts of the Fujisan area, and we will start with the Fuji Kacho-en garden, a birds and flower garden, very close to Mt. Fuji, where you can feed owls, penguins and other birds and enjoy the flowers. We will then proceed to the Shimizu Fish Market, in the Shimizu Port, and then the Hiroshige Museum, dedicated to Utagawa Hiroshige, one the most famous ukiyoe artists in the Edo era, and author of the world famous wave.

We will finish our exploration with the Fujisanhongu Sengen Taisha shrine, located at the south gate of Mt.Fuji. This shrine was regarded highly by a lot of Shoguns and  Sengoku Daimyos (leaders of samurais).

Afterwards we will make our way back to Tokyo (2 hour drive back).

Virtual tour

In April 2020, during the Covid-19 lockdown, we had a lovely live cast with Kuniyasu Nomura of Ohayo Travel from Tokyo.  Kuniyasu told us about some of his favourite outdoors places near Tokyo and on how to find information about accessible places and itineraries in Japan. Watch the video to get some first hand tips and travel ideas – and accessibility tips too!
