Mount Fuji & Hakone

Instantly recognisable to both Japanese and international visitors, Mount Fuji is Japan’s most iconic natural landscape. Standing 3776 metres tall, it is the country’s tallest mountain and an active volcano – a constant, majestic presence in the historical and cultural fabric of Japan. Standing alone, Mount Fuji acts as a grand beacon that calls visitors to leave the capital and begin their exploration of Central Japan.

Readily accessible from Tokyo, Fuji draws countless visitors each year. Some come to climb it while many others venture to the surrounding areas simply to witness its grandeur and imposing beauty. Surrounding the mountain, areas including Kawaguchiko and Hakone are blessed with hot springs and abundant beauty, and home to many restaurants, museums, galleries and guesthouses.
