Mt Fuji & the Japanese Alps

Mt Fuji and Mt Yarigatake are the most famous Japanese mountains, and on this trip we ascend both of these iconic peaks while also taking in Japan's intriguing blend of ancient traditions and modern culture. As well as climbing Yarigatake, the 'Japanese Matterhorn', and the classic volcanic cone of Fuji, we stay in Kyoto, Japan's ancient capital, with its peaceful Zen gardens and Shinto temples, spend a day futuristic Tokyo, and take a short walk on the Nakasendo Way - an ancient trading route.

Apart from breakfasts and four dinners, food is not included in the price. You should allow around GBP30-40 a day to cover the cost of food and drink. It is possible to eat more cheaply than this, or to spend considerably more, depending on the standard of restaurant chosen. In many of the places we visit there are restaurants available to cater for all tastes and pockets and it is generally very easy to enjoy every aspect of Japan's excellent cuisine either as a group or on your own. Please note that vegetarian food may or may not be available at dinner time on Mt. Fuji.
