JTB – Mt. Fuji luxurious climbing tours for those visiting Japan – with English-speaking (or other language) mountain guide, round-trip domestic transportation service, and climbing gear included
The climbing season for Mt. Fuji, a symbol of Japan and the new World Heritage-listed site, officially opened today. Because of its new status, many people expect (and are even a bit concerned) that there will be many more climbers than usual visiting Mt. Fuji this year.
Because today is the first day of the climbing season, we would like to introduce the “Private Mt. Fuji Tour” tour packages planned by major Japanese travel company, JTB. There are 2 kinds of tours:
1) Mt. Fuji Climbing Private Tour (2 Days)
English speaking tour guide will pick you up by car and take you to the “5th station” of Mt. Fuji (the usual starting point for hiking the mountain). Once summiting has been completed, you can enjoy the beautiful sunrise from the top of Mt. Fuji. Then, a hot spring and Kaiseki-style traditional lunch near Lake Kawaguchi/Yamanaka await you.
Price: ¥94,000 or more (depending on the number of people)
2) Mt. Fuji Climbing and “Exploring immense Nature by Walk” Private Tour (4 Days)
This is a very challenging walking tour. The tour begins from Mt. Takao in Tokyo and covers 100km to finish at Mt. Fuji. You can stay at ryokans (Japanese style hotel) and enjoy hot spring and Japanese style food along the way.
Price: ¥248,000 or more (depending on the number of people)
Both are private tours with a dedicated luxurious car and tour guide.
