A trip to Japan is never complete without taking a closer look at Mt. Fuji or “Fuji-san“, as the Japanese fondly call this peak that is at a height of about 3,776 meters (the tallest in the country). After all, it sure is a natural beauty that has even been granted a UNESCO World Heritage Status since 2013.
Because of this and more, a lot of locals and tourists alike scramble to various locations throughout Japan to better capture this glorious mountain, and those places are not limited to Fuji Five Lakes (Fujigoko), Hakone, and more.
You can definitely travel to these spots yourself — BUT, if you’re pressed on time or if you simply want a hassle-free visit, it’s a great idea to book a guided tour instead that will take you to several areas with great views!
