4,629 reviews
Navigating Japan’s public transport system can often be a daunting task. Let a guide do the work for you on this tour of Mt. Fuji and Lake Ashi by coach and bullet train, which saves you hours in travel time. Ascend to the Mt. Fuji’s 5th Station; ride on the Komagatake Ropeway, one of Japan’s highest aerial tramways; and take a cruise on Lake Ashi, part of Hakone National Park.

Norikura has several trails to choose from, for beginners to more experienced climbers. I combined the different trails, trekked to the main summit at Mt Kengamine at 3026m altitude, and trekked to 3 other peaks of ~2770m altitude in about 4h. You can start the trek for all the trails from the bus stop at Norikura! The bus timings are limited, do check the Nohi Bus timetable for planning of route.

Originally, we planned to hike up to the summit but the wind was so strong that we could hardly stand still on the ridge. No kidding, it really felt like Typhoons. And it’s chilling to the bone. So, we had to abandon the ascent and just walked around the little pond next to the bus stop. Still, this high up in the mountain, the views were fantastic. Thanks to the wind, the sky was clear. We could see the Japanese Alps from far away. And, some section of the pond trail was sandwiched between 2 walls of snow. Looking at the pictures we took, people always thought we’ve gone to Tateyama Kurobe (the signature poster is a similar road cutting through 2 walls of snow). It is indeed a very beautiful place. We’d really want to come back and attempt the summit walk again. Hopefully, the weather is more agreeable then.

A leisure way to see Mt Norikura is to take the Alpico Bus from Kanto Centre if you don't want to kill your legs climbing up...

Took shuttle bus in Norikura kogen (abt 1300m) and reached Tatami-daira (terminal) at 2700m in about 1 hr. (no other car is allowed, except licensed). Helpful visitor centre staff gave map and advice to attack the summit. The first 30 min was an easy walk, followed by a steep climb to the summit. Rocky boulders are everywhere so mountain boots and hiking poles are highly recommended. There were many people going up and down that morning, including kids. By the time i reached the summit there were many people up there. Unfortunately, there were mist and clouds around the summit level so could not see the JP Alps in the distance. Surprisingly, there is a Jingu (place where jp gods live for jp to worship) up there and a local in jingu costume selling souvenirs. And there is a mt hut at 2900m selling fresh coffee etc. Totally amazing ! This hiking route opens till late Oct from July, when there is no snow or severe weather.
