Mt Fuji & the Japanese Alps

My best adventure to date

From start to finish this trip was fantastic, we packed so much into the time we had in Japan and our tour guide Mayuko had everything so well organised the holiday ran like a dream.

The trip title is misleading. There were 2 climbs made, Mt. Yaragatake and Mt. Fuji, both strenuous and spectacular but no hiking through the Alps as we had thought. There was a SIGNIFICANT amount of time spent in public transport, trains, buses, to get between the mountains. The time to take making these transfers was not mentioned in the trip notes. One day after 3 changes all carrying our cases, we arrived at 10.30pm to then get a taxi to our accommodation. In the trip, time spent hiking was only the 4 days (or in part) of the 2 climbs and one simple hike along the Edo walk which was not in the alps. The majority of time was spent in down time or in travel between accommodation. The overall cost of the trip was more than I have paid for hiking holidays with Exodus and I believe that was due to the significant cost in transport between sites.

Mt Fuji & the Japanese Alps, this trip starts in Kyoto with a day or two to see the historic former capital of Japan before taking the bullet train and walking a section of the Nakasendo way. From there the trip sets off to the national park of Kamikochi to ascend Mt Yarigatake (3180m). After this there are a few days to explore Matsumoto before catching the bus to Station Five to start the trek to the summit of Mt Fuji (3776m). The trip ends in Tokyo where there are free days to explore the mix of historic and modern Japan. The trip allows you to sample the various forms of Japanese cuisine that include noodle dishes, sushi and various other rice noodle or fish based dishes.

What a fantastic trip. A good mixture of cities and mountains. Everything was efficient there and the people were always so obliging to help with information or directions.

Wonderful trip!

Great trip, you get to see many different aspects of Japan and get to do things which wouldn't be possible/wouldn't know about without a guide! It's a shame the stay in Kyoto and Tokyo is so short!

I’ve been on quite a few small group holidays and this tour definitely had the most varied and contrasting itinerary to date. I loved the mix of hiking, history, culture, city, countryside, hi-tech and low-tech; the balance between busy days and time to relax and enjoy the fabulous scenery Japan has to offer was perfect. Particular highlights for me include the extraordinarily good food, the scramble to the summit of Mt Yarigatake, the buzz of the mountain huts and the friendliness of all the people we came across on our travels.
