What we will do
Our Mt. Fuji Food tour takes place in the lovely town of Fujinomiya, just at the base of the most famous mountain in Japan. With deep clear mountain spring water- Fujinomiya is a great place for delicious food, sake, soba noodles and green tea. Get off the beaten track of the Tokyo-Kyoto corridor and discover true local furusato(home town) spirit. Fujinomiya is an easy day trip from Tokyo (or an overnight visit that will give you more time to explore!) The brand new Mt Fuji World Heritage Cultural Center is our starting point to explore this special place. Hop on the super fast Shinkansen (bullet train) and discover this hidden gem!
