... great trip ... Beautiful weather and very nice locations. The lake was nice but windy, shame it was just 1/2 hour. The location of the hill with te pagode was on my list for a long time ... very nice view of Fuju in every way. Just get good shoes and good condition. The ponds where also nice and beautiful location again ... rather had 2 hours to visit all 8, just mised one due to time. The Peace Park was ok, liked the valley of the Kannon statues and the garden ... had luck to see and hear the Monks pray. Only downpoint was traffic to Fuji and back. But the day made it ok.

Fuji-Q has 4 main roller coasters, some are the fastest and steepest in the world. It also offers the great sight of Mt. Fuji in all of it’s glory. Plenty to do here in a day. Recommend going on very clear day to see Mt. Fuji. Bring extra COVID masks. Mine flew off on one of the coasters and you’ll need them inside the park.

We were traveling with some senior members, and so a wheelchair and elderly friendly tour was what we need. This package is definitely a convenient and best way to reach all the great spots around Fuji mountain areas in one day!

Totally worth visiting when in japan. Lots to do so make sure you get there early. To make it easier i suggest getting the day pass. The fast passes can be bought at every ride also.

My Fuji was spine tingling amazing to see - the bus journey and the guide and the stops at various observation locations was all wonderful- thankyou for the great day :)
