Mt. Fuji, Lake Kawaguchi and Oshino Ninja Village Bus Tour from Tokyo

My Fuji

Reviewed by: Kim, 2017/05/21

It was amazing to see everything! However it was really rushed, by the time you finished the toilet break you had to quickly walk around and get photos, than straight back on the bus to the next place.

Shinjuku to Mt Fuji

Reviewed by: Irena , 2017/05/15

15/05/2017, we found this tour very good! Meeting our tour guide was easy and we boarded a nice clean and comfortable bus. Our tour guide was Levin and he was very informative, funny and helpful. Our first stop was Lake Kawaguchi-ko where we were lucky enough to get a brief look at Mt Fuji and enjoyed a delicious freshly made blueberry soft cream (ice cream), we then went to the 8 ponds in Oshino Hakkai and drank from the fountain of youth which is mineral water from the volcanic area and saw carp swimming in the creater like ponds and took photos of some cherry blossom trees. We then drove to a ninja village where we ate japanese style lunch and took a photo with a ninja and joined in some ninja activities. Next stop was the 5th station where we were lucky enough to be able to be driven all the way to the top of the 5th station (it can be closed due to weather conditions), it was very cold and windy but was lovely to see Mt Fuji close up! We also received a special gift at this point and our final stop was a 4d movie experience which was very amazing technology and scenery of Mt Fuji and surrounding areas and quite fun. Throughout the trip our guide Levin was giving us facts about the areas and making the tour fun and interesting for us and was more than happy to answer our questions.
I would recommend this tour!

Hello

The trip was fine, we enjoyed each segment very much!
The 2 guides were also very nice and helpful!

The restaurant was just fine- not enough choise, and only fried food! Was acceptable but we expected a bit more choise and at least one kind of fish ?
On the wax back they left us in shinzuku- before booking we understood that we be driven to our hotels.
But generally speaking was overall just fine - I will also recommend my friends to take this tour once they travel to Tokyo!
The bus wasn't very comfortable
We expected something new was an old bus, and on the way back fm Mount Fuji , the guides just left us alone- they did not talked or gave further information Or whatsoever!

Thank you for having us JM yr tour- the fact that we had to pay 2 for 1 it made trip more convenient!

Otherwise price seems too high!

Hope to meet again in one of yr tours

Regards
Robert futsi

Amazing Tour of Mt.Fuji!

Reviewed by: Edward A. , 2017/05/10

It was our first time in Japan and we decided to take a tour to mt.Fuji. There was alot of tour companies offering packages but we decided to take Japan Panoramic Tours and we were not disappointed! Our tour guide Taejun Kim was very informative and friendly. While the bus ride and stops along the way to mt.fuji was superb! Amazing tour and great company. Wil recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Mt.Fuji! My Brother and sister will be visiting next month, will definitely give this package to them! Thank you for such a great time :)

Amazing, amazing, amazing!!

Reviewed by: Emily, 2017/05/07

The entire trip was simply amazing. From the time we arrived, Jessica was already at the location giving us our bus seat number. We didn't have to scramble for seat especially when we were traveling in a group. The itinerary was well planned. There was information about Mt. Fuji being told along the way. We were super lucky to have a clear view of the majestic mountain at out first stop at Lake Kawaguchi. There was also a shop selling blueberry ice cream. A must try! Next stop was the Ninja village. We took many good pictures here with Mt Fuji as background. Love the pink cherry blossom trees which had not withered like those in Ueno Park. The lunch here was a simple buffet. Delicious and spread was good enough to fill our stomach. We then visited the Oshino 8 Seas and filled up three empty bottles with the fresh spring water. Clean. Didn't have any stomach upset after drinking. The souvenir shops here were cheaper and had many varieties. The 4D ride in Fuji Q was thrilling. Worth to try on such technology. Our finale was the fifth station. There were snow at the sides which my children had a snow ball fight. Small place but the close up view of the mountain was not something that I can easily forget! Kudos to Jessica and Kim who had taken good care of everyone. Such cheerful and knowledgeable guides!

Enjoyable day trip

Reviewed by: kirsty, 2017/04/11

The trip was well organised and we visited number of different places. The scenery was beautiful despite the weather. All the places we visited, we were meant to see Mt Fuji, however it was too cloudy, which was a shame. But that cannot be helped. The tour includes going to the 5th station of Mt Fuji, however there was snow there so we were only allowed to go up to the 1st station. There we could see Mt Fuji through the clouds. The 4D simulation ride of Mt Fuji was lovely, you could see Mt Fuji in all the seasons. The lunch was delicious with good sized portions.

Overall the weather let us down but I cannot fault the tour.

Great first time experience!

Reviewed by: Sam, 2017/03/31

Our experience with this tour was great and everything went as planned except the weather wasnt at its best so we were not able to see the mountain as much as we wouldve liked. Even tho that was indeed the case for our tour, it was still spectacular to see mt fuji from where we were.

Our first stop was at the lake, this was hands down the best view of the mountain from my opinion. The reflection of the mountain against the lake was breath taking and it woke us up instantly after the bus ride to get there. It took about 1.5 hours to get there from shinjuku to the first stop. I took most of my pictures here, really beautiful scenic stop and makes you appreciate the nature.

When it was time to visit fifth station where the hikers usually begin their journey, the weather was not permitting so we started at first station. That was noted in the itinerary so dont be too disappointed. This stop wasnt too exciting but it was a good stop for the restroom.

The next favorite stop is the 4-d ride of mt fuji. Ot was near an amusement park so we also got to see one of the roller coasters that is in the gunniess world record, i believe they mentioned it was the steepest drop. I cringed when i saw it! Crazy ride! But anyway the 4d ride was really fun. We were split into two groups and we went first. Got to see a mini movie almost but the ride made it feel like you were actually there.

The lunch was pretty good as well, theres definitely better food in japan but it was good for what is provided. It was buffet style so they will make sure youre not starving. We had curry, salad, soup and a variety of noodles and meat.

Over all it was truly a good experience. If you are planning on visiting japan i would say a trip to mt fuji is a must do!

Amazing trip to Mount Fuji

Reviewed by: Andy, 2017/03/10

My wife and I have been to Japan many times, but we have never actually quite made it out to Mount Fuji. Part of the reason is that it is not as convenient as some of the other famous sites. As a result, we booked the tour from Veltra which was a great idea. It managed to take us to several of the different sites in one day, much easier than if we tried to do it through public transport. The day turned out amazing as we had amazing weather. The only downer was that the fifth station of Mount Fuji was closed, so we were only allowed to the first station, where there really was nothing to see. This was clearly told us at the time of booking, so it did not seem like a surprise to use. Overall, it was a fantastic trip and we would totally do it again just to try and make it back to the fifth station.

Thoughful guides

Reviewed by: FC Lew, 2017/03/08

I booked the trip for myself and my wife. Our guide was a Japanese lady, Miss Mahoda and a Croatia guy, Mario. Both of them are very thoughtful, especially Miss Mahoda. Throughout the trip, she kept checking if any assistance required, and more than that, she walked around to offer help to hold the camera to take group photo for us. Not only 1 attraction, but she has been doing that for most if not all attraction.

Lunch was at ninja village. It was well organized and ample time for us to take a stroll in ninja village garden.
