We went with a tour group with this as the first stop. It was amazing to to think that we were at the base of Mt Fuji. Didn't get a good view because of the fog.

My friend and I took a bus tour to see Mt. Fuji. It's a very beautiful sight. This location is very nice and affords spectacular views of the Japanese Alps. The tour company was Hato

Mt. Fuji 5th station, we can take pictures of Mt. Fuji from this spot and from the shrine on this spot. Many tourists visit this station.
We went here on a tour bus but if I ever come back I will definitely do this without a tour as there simply was not enough time. We had 30 minutes, just enough time to visit a souvenir shop and that's about it however...More
