Mount Fuji and Hakone National Park - Japan
Escape the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and travel west to discover the remarkable Hakone National Park. This wondrous park is home to some of Japan’s most impressive landmarks, not least the incredible Mount Fuji. The huge active volcano is the country’s largest mountain, and can be ascended to reveal unforgettable views at its summit of the surrounding lakes and parkland. The beautiful Lake Ashi, formed by the volcano some 3,000 years ago, sits in the shadow of the great mountain and cruises are available to sit back and soak in the immense surroundings. Get swept off your feet on the Mount Komagatake Aerial Cableway and enjoy the unparalleled views of the park it provides. Hakone is also full of natural Hot Springs, many of which have been utilised in quaint, relaxing Japanese bath houses. Hakone Shrine is another hidden gem which stands at the foot of Mount Hakone, on the shores of Lake Ashi, hidden in the dense forest.

Where is it?
The Park is located in the south of Honshu Island, around 60 miles south-west of capital city Tokyo.

What is it?
This sprawling volcanic zone of over 1200 sq. kilometres includes Mount Fuji as well as the Five Lakes of Fuji. Mount Fuji is still active and last erupted around 300 years ago.

Best time to visit?
The official climbing season only lasts two months, from July to August, so this is the best time to tackle the mountain, which can be climbed to various levels depending on your own preference.

Must See?
The Murayama Sengen Jinja Temple, on the route to Mount Fuji’s summit, is a hugely spiritual and remarkable site. Japanese people believe that Mt Fuji is a secret mountain firmly connected to God, and as such all who climb it must visit this ancient Cherry Blossom and Cedar tree surrounded beauty.
