2. What are the dietary options for lunch?
To ensure a well-rounded experience, we provide both traditional Japanese and vegetarian meals for lunch. We understand the importance of dietary preferences and restrictions; therefore, if you require a vegetarian meal, please make sure to send us an email by 3:00 p.m. the day before your tour. This allows us enough time to prepare and ensures you receive a meal that suits your dietary needs.

If we encounter road blockages that prevent access to the Fuji Subaru Line leading up to the 5th station, we have a robust alternative plan in place.

After a day filled with intriguing experiences and unforgettable moments, the tour is scheduled to conclude at the Tokyo Station Marunouchi South Exit at approximately 18:20. This gives you enough time to rest and reflect on the day's memories.

Given that the tour involves various activities, including a fair bit of walking and climbing, we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and footwear. Weather conditions at Mt. Fuji can fluctuate, so it's advisable to bring layered clothing to adjust to the changing temperatures.
6. Is the tour subject to any changes?
Yes, due to the weather conditions it will not be possible to travel all the way to Mt. Fuji's 5th station from the beginning of December '23 - end of January '24. Please note that the tour will make a stop at Oshino Hakkai instead, and move the lunch to Regina Kawaguchiko.

Our guide was great!
We had an excellent time on this excursion. The guide, Ah-Tun-Ushi San made the trip very enjoyable with his history lessons, stories and jokes. The lunch was surprisingly good compared to other tours we've been on. We would do another tour with Hato Bus the next time we are back in Tokyo. Highly recommend! Wish we had more time on Mt Fuji. Great trip all in all!

Highly Recommend Mt Fuji Tour
What a great tour we had today! Our tour guide, Sushi (my apologies for misspelling your name) was amazing. I give him an A+++++! I learned so much about Japan, the history, Mt. Fuji, the belief systems, the prefects, why people drive on the left side of the road ( it has to do with the Samurai), and much much more. The sites were incredible! The food at the restaurant was excellent. Lots of stops to stretch your legs, and see new things. I highly recommend Hato Tours and Mr. Sushi.
