How to Get to Mt Fuji from Tokyo

How to Get to Mt Fuji from Tokyo

Japan’s tallest peak, Mt Fuji dominates central Japan’s landscape. Both visitors and locals flock to the area to enjoy the scenery and, during the summer months, climb to the summit. Here are your options for getting to this iconic sight from Tokyo.

Guided Day Trips

The benefit of a guided tour to Mt Fuji is that all transport logistics for your trip are taken care of for you. Depending on the excursion you choose, you may travel directly from your Tokyo hotel aboard a coach bus, or combine a bus trip to this famous mountain with a ride back to the city aboard one of Japan's famous bullet trains.

By Bullet Train

Japan's efficient train system offers one of the most flexible methods of reaching the Mt Fuji region from Tokyo. While there's no train service that travels directly to the mountain, a number of nearby stops offer connections to virtually all Fuji access points and mountain stations via bus service. Many visitors and tour groups get off at stops along the Tokaido Shinkansen (bullet train) line, such as Shin-Fuji or Mishima, where they transfer to local buses to complete their journey to the mountain.

By Car

Visitors can choose from a range of chartered car services, opt for a private day trip with a chauffeur, or even arrange to rent their own vehicle. Most car travelers arrive at the mountain via Japan's Tomei or Chuo expressways. Be sure to have cash for expressway tolls if you plan to drive yourself.

By Bus

A variety of coach bus trips depart from Tokyo for Mt. Fuji. In addition to guided bus tours, it's also possible to independently purchase tickets for the Keio express bus, which travels directly from Tokyo's Shinjuku area to the popular Kawaguchiko 5th Station. Book a tour with bus transport and independent exploration at the mountain for the best of both worlds.
