Few other Japanese sites are as iconic as Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest peak and one of the country’s “Three Holy Mountains.” This 12,389-foot (3,776-meter) active volcano is known for its near-perfect conical shape and regarded as a semi-deity in Japanese Shinto religion. Some believe it possesses its own soul.
Mount Fuji is visible for hundreds of miles in every direction so there are plenty of great vantage points from which to admire it. In Tokyo, make your way to the top of the Bunkyo Civic Center or the Tokyo Skytree, both offering stunning views of the mountain towering beyond Tokyo’s skyscrapers. Visibility is best during early morning and late evening, particularly during the colder seasons. Fuji’s classic snowcapped peak is typically clearest from November to May.
Sit on the right side of the train during a journey from Tokyo to Osaka for another prime opportunity to see this famous peak. Take a daytrip from Tokyo to the Fuji Five Lakes region on Mount Fuji’s northern slopes for views of the mountain in a picturesque natural setting.
For an even closer look, journey to the Fuji Subaru Line 5th Station, the most popular of the four 5th stations located on the mountain’s slopes. Aside from occasional snow closures, this spot can be reached year-round via public transportation directly from Tokyo. From the 5th station, you will see the mountain’s peak as well as views over the Fuji Five Lakes area below.
It is believed that Mt. Fuji was first climbed in the 8th century. Hike to the summit today in 5 to 7 hours with a 3- to 4-hour return. The mountain is officially open July through mid September, with several different routes available to the top. Although physically challenging, the climb is within the capabilities of even inexperienced hikers and climbers. More than 300,000 locals and tourists make this memorable trek each year, many planning to reach the peak for a splendid sunrise.

The hotel was facing fuji q Highland theme park and has a view of Mount fuji. However weather was cloudy in September hence we didn't catch a view of the mountain. The breakfast was good and has great variety
Front desk service was very polite. Breakfast buffet was limited. There is a bath tax of 150 yen per person.
Shuttle bus service from station is very good. Staff is so nice. Not far from Lawson.
Great place, staff were terrific. Onsen were really nice. Dinner service was amazing! ~11 courses of Japanese haute food.
It was clean and room was big enough for 4 of us. Dinner was good (not excellent) and enough food was provided. It has nice hot spring bath looking over the lake.
It is near gas stations, shopping, restaurants and the highway entrance. It has ample parking spaces and a clean bath. The lobby is welcoming and big.
Nice hotel if you just want to relax. Location is in the middle of nowhere. There are no restaurants close by and the hotel restaurant is overpriced. Overall a very nice place to enjoy and relax. Location is not good for sight seeing the area.
