Excellent Mt Fuji Sightseeing, Playtime and Sleigh Ride in the Snow, Buffet Lunch, and Winter Lights!

Reviewed by: Jeyo, 2018/02/28

This was the highlight of our Japan Adventure!

The guide of our tour Aki-San made the tour very fun for us! She was very accommodating and she gave us a lot of souvenir items for free!

The meet up point for HATO BUS was very easy to find, and is near comfort rooms and convenient stores. The itinerary of the tour was adjusted because of the traffic (due to car accident in the expressway), but Aki-San and Inoue-San (the driver) made it sure that we would still have the best tour experience.

We first ate BUFFET lunch near mt fuji. The food was very good and the beer was excellent for it was world-renowned beer (the first cup is free!)

Then we went straight to SNOW TOWN YETI to play with the snow! This was our first time to experience snow so this activity was very fun for us! The sleigh ride was very easy and fun to do! and we also build our very own snowman! The temperature there was not as cold as we imagined. If you want to build a very good snowman, I suggest you bring your own bucket and shovel! :)

After that, we went to ROPEWAY to have a view of mount Fuji. It was a good view because we went atop of a mountain.

Then we went to SAGAMIKO WINTER LIGHTS! It was one of a kind! The CHAIRLIFT going up the hill costs 600 yen per pax (back and forth) was worth it because of the light illumination view.

I would recommend this tour to everyone! and would recommend Aki-San as tour guide because she was excellent and very fun!


  • At Snowtown Yeti with the view of Mt Fuji, before for the sleigh ride!


  • Our very own Snowmen! Add scarf and gloves next time. Bring your bucket and shovel!


  • Chairlift with the colorful lights at Sagamiko Winter Lights!

This tour was the highlight of our trip! A day packed full of excitement and great value for money. The trip starts with a scenic bus ride with really interesting tour commentary from the world's best tour guide, Aki-san driven by the world's best driver, Tanaka-san. You then get heaps of time to play in the snow and sled as many times as you want. Lunch at Sylvan's was so tasty, we highly recommend the pizza, and an award winning beer is included. You then visit an ancient shrine for climbers of Mt Fuji, surrounded by really tall trees and you get plently of time to explore. Next is the cable car ride which gives you an amazing view, go to the back of the car for the best view on the way up. We were lucky to have the perfect view of snow covered My Fuji, whuch seems like it is so close you can almost touch it. Finally, the illuminations, with 6 million lights is like nothing you have seen before. There is a light palace, an animal forest and even a huge niagra light falls. Prepare to take a million photos and leave wondering when you can come again. You won't be able to resist all the yummy souvenirs in the gift shop. The day ends at around 7.30pm in the heart of Shinjuku, so you can head out or have dinner. For us, at the end of such a great day, even the lights of Shinjuku were dull! Make sure you book this tour and tell your friends, it is something you will remember forever!
Recommendations:
Plan to arrive at the bus stop early, Shinjuku station is a maze.
Wear shoes with grip, even though sliding in the snow is fun!
