Visit Japan’s iconic Mt Fuji and nearby Aokigahara Forest on a day trip from Tokyo. Discover the unique natural environment of this formerly active volcanic region, and see ice and wind caves that have been formed by lava. Stop at the 5th Station for breathtaking views of Mt Fuji from an altitude of 7,610 feet (2,305 meters). Your day trip ends in Tokyo’s bustling Shinjuku precinct.

In the morning of your tour, travel by coach two hours west from Tokyo to Mt Fuji, Japan's highest mountain. Drive up the mountain, admiring the stunning scenery as you make your way to the 5th station, the highest point on Fuji that can be reached by vehicle. Hop out for 30 to 40 minutes of free time to enjoy the views, take photos, browse the gift shop or visit one of the restaurants, if you wish.

The second half of your day trip begins as you head to Aokigahara Forest, aka the Sea of Trees, located at the base of Mt Fuji. Known for its unusual topography due to its volcanic makeup, the forest is home to above-ground tree roots, exposed lava flows, scattered chunks of volcanic rock and caves created by volcanic gas that collected below the ground and then exploded.

With your guide, enter the Narusawa Ice Cave, covered year-round by ice. This cave is off-limits to the public, so you’re only allowed to enter with your guide. Walk carefully over the wet, uneven, sometimes-icy surfaces, marveling at the ice formations deep in the cave.

When you leave the cave, you’ll be dropped off at the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park bus stop, where you’ll catch the bus back to Tokyo. Your bus ticket is provided by your guide, and your seat is already assigned and reserved, so don’t worry about waiting in line. While you wait for the bus, you can buy souvenirs or snacks at the concession stand, or check out the amusement park entrance, which is home to a large gift shop where you can buy candy and local wine or even enjoy a round of bowling (you may have an hour or more of wait time, depending on when you leave the cave).

The approximate 2-hour bus ride ends in Tokyo’s Shinjuku precinct, a vibrant shopping and entertainment area that will be busy and lively when you arrive — a great way to end your night!

Please note: Views around Mt Fuji are always subject to weather conditions, as mountain weather is notoriously unpredictable. Visibility tends to be better during the colder months, in the early morning and late evening.

Stroll through dense bamboo groves to hidden mountain temples and discover centuries of Japanese heritage on this 4-hour Arashiyama and Sagano walking tour. Explore the natural wilderness of the Sagano bamboo grove with your guide. Visit the ancient Tenryu-ji Temple and learn of its 14th-century history. Head along forested paths in search of the Jojakko-ji Temple and admire its impressive pagoda. Wander across the Togetsukyō Bridge to take in beautiful valley views, and escape the busy city to appreciate the tranquil beauty of Japan's rural landscape.

After pickup up at New Miyako Hotel in the morning, head to Sagano - northwest of the Kyoto Basin - to meet your guide and begin your walking tour. The walk covers approximately 2 miles (3 km) and starts with a stroll through the verdant Sagano Bamboo Grove, surrounded by mountain peaks and swooping valleys in the Arashiyama region.

From there, continue on to the Tenryu-ji Temple - one of the head temples of the Rinzai Zen School - established in 1339 by Takauji, the first shogun of the Ashikaga Shogunate. The temple is famous for its landscaped garden which, unlike the temple buildings, has survived in its original form.

Head on with your guide to the Jojakko-ji Temple, sitting among dense forest foliage and bamboo trees halfway up a mountain. Jojakko-ji was the final home of Empress Dowager Kenrei-mon-in, a principal character in the Tale of the Heike - widely considered to be one of the most important works of classical Japanese literature. The temple is thought to have been originally built as a nunnery and boasts a fascinating history reaching back to the 6th century. Admire the statue of the Jizo and seek out the pagoda hidden among the Japanese maple trees - two of the temples top attractions.

Finally, take a walk over Togetsukyō Bridge (Crossing Moon Bridge) to enjoy beautiful views out over the Hozu River below and the forested hills above. The present bridge was rebuilt in steel in 1934, faithfully copying the structure and design of the original. After four hours exploring the sites in and around Kyoto, head to Kyoto station with your guide where your tour will come to an end.

See Kyoto highlights on this 6-hour tour from Osaka! Visit two UNESCO World Heritage sites — Ninjo Castle and Kinkaku-ji Temple (Golden Pavilion) — as you tour Japan’s former capital with an experienced local guide. You’ll also visit the Kyoto Imperial Palace and the Kyoto Handicraft Center, traveling round-trip by train from Osaka. Enjoy impressive displays of the seasons at these landmarks, including cherry trees in full blossom in spring!

Your guide will pick you up from your selected hotel in the morning and accompany you to the Osaka railway station. Board the JR rapid service train for Kyoto and relax on the 30-minute ride to the former imperial capital. Upon arrival, you’ll disembark and begin your 6-hour tour of the city, where Japan’s emperors resided from 794 until 1868.

Your comfortable coach delivers you to top attractions where you’ll hear expert commentary from your guide. Begin at Nijo Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site built in 1603 to house Tokugawa shoguns for more than two centuries. Observe the solemn appearance of the castle's massive gate and stone walls surrounded by a moat, in contrast with its decorative interiors painted in gold leaf. You’ll find fantastic photo opportunities in any season amid the garden’s plum and cherry tree groves. When Nijo Castle is closed, you’ll visit Ryoan-ji Temple instead.

Next, walk around one of the world's most exquisite Japanese gardens at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kinkaku-ji Temple. View the revered Golden Pavilion before a visit to the Kyoto Imperial Palace. A residence of the imperial family until the capital was relocated to Tokyo in 1868, the palace clearly shows the Japanese taste for simplicity, purity and tranquility. You'll also view the Shishinden imperial state chamber where enthronement ceremonies took place. When the Kyoto Imperial Palace is closed, the tour will visit Kitano Shrine (Kitano Tenman-gu) instead.
