A pirate ship on Lake Ashi, stunning views of Mount Fuji from Hakone cable car and shopping at the Gotemba Premium Outlets: make the most of your time in Tokyo with this unforgettable day trip!
Hakone Pirate Ship, Owakudani & Gotemba Premium Outlets
Meet your guide at 8 am at the West Exit of Shinjuku Station, where your bus will be waiting to take you on your day trip. Leave Tokyo behind and set off on the two hour journey to Togendai.
Having arrived at the dock at Togendai, you'll set sail on an exciting cruise on board a pirate ship! Spend 30 minutes cruising over Lake Ashi and enjoying the unmistakable silhouette of Mount Fuji from the deck: its iconic snowy peak reigns majestically on the horizon!
Your pirate boat trip on Lake Ashi will come to an end back at the Togendai port, where you'll then climb aboard the Hakone cable car, which will take you soaring over the Japanese countryside to the Owakudani station in just 15 minutes. Don't forget your camera: this is one of the best viewpoints from which to see Mount Fuji!
Owakudani is a famous volcanic zone known for its sulphur vents and hot springs, as well for its spectacular views of one of the most iconic symbols of Japan: Mount Fuji. You'll get to watch one of the region's most unusual traditions here: eggs being boiled by the volcanic steam! Owakudani is also an important sacred place where many people choose to pray for good health and a long life.
You'll have 30 minutes of free time to enjoy the panoramic views from Owakudani, before taking the Hakone cable car back down to Togendai. You'll then leave the shore of Lake Ashi behind and head north by bus. After a half an hour drive, you'll reach the popular Gotemba Premium Outlets, where you'll have two hours of free time to eat and to explore the more than 200 shops at your leisure. Hugo Boss, Jimmy Choo, Lacoste, Loewe... luxury international brands at great prices!
At 4:30 pm, you'll meet back up at the entrance to the shopping centre for the return journey to Tokyo. You'll be dropped back off at Shinjuku Station for around 6 pm.
