The 5th Station is considered the most like an entrance to the magnificent Mount Fuji. People either come here to see the peak up-close or to begin their trek up Mount Fuji. Given the 50 minute time frame of this tour, take a breath of fresh air, some selfies and panorama close-ups of Mount Fuji, and grab some souvenirs from the local shops. In summer, 5th station will be filled with people who want to challenge themselves by hiking to the peak of Mount Fuji. Summer is also the recommended time for people who are not climbing (only visiting 5th station) too because of the clear weather and ease of transport. However, during the peak of summer, Mount Fuji lacks its iconic white snow-cap. The snow will be visible again around October.
12:00 (60 minutes) Sightseeing at Kawaguchiko Lake
Kawaguchiko Lake is surrounded by an appealing small town, tourist attractions, and many hot spring resorts. It's also where the best view of Mount Fuji over water can be seen. 60 minutes of free time will be available for participants to observe, take selfies, and shoot panoramic photos. The lake itself is quite scenic too, featuring both cherry blossoms in spring and autumn colors in the fall.
13:25 (50 minutes) The Zen sightseeing spot of Oshino Hakkai
The Eight Seas of Oshino is a group of eight ponds that is easily accessible from Kawaguchiko. The clear water found in the eight ponds flows down from Mount Fuji. Visitors are welcome to try drinking fresh spring water from the source too. The spot itself has been developed into a popular tourist attraction with a lot of shops, restaurants, and other smaller attractions. The rice crackers are pretty famous. Overall, it's a crowded yet comfy tourist spot that is also a must for people who want to have a look of Mount Fuji from a different angle.
15:05 (90 minutes) Shopping at Gotemba Premium Outlets
Arguably a must visit of all outlet malls, Gotemba Premium Outlets features over 200 stores and many restaurants. Filled to the brim with many luxury shops, brand name products both Japanese and international, food and beverages, electronics, clothes, and everything else you can find in a large mall, plus an unbeatable view of Mount Fuji. It's a convenient place for foreigners to shop with full support of international credit cards, ATMs that foreigners can withdraw from, and other impressive shopping support.
