Mt. Fuji Food and Culture Ecotour
- Full Day
Today, see a different side of the iconic Mt. Fuji and support local businesses in the small town of Fujinomiya. The adventure will begin with a pick-up at Shin-Fuji Station at 10:00. After dropping off any extra luggage for storage, take a stroll through the local shotengai, a type of traditional shopping street lined with a variety of shops that is typical in Japan. They can be open-air, or covered arcades that are pedestrian-only zones. Spend some time browsing the shopfronts and a small, local shrine. Seeing how different the shops are from back home is an endless source of entertainment!

Having worked up an appetite for lunch, stop for a yakisoba making session. After learning how to make this delicious Japanese stir-fried noodle dish, tuck in to a hearty meal.

After enjoying this delicious meal head to the next activity – a kimono fitting followed by a visit to a UNESCO World Heritage designated shrine. Learn about the history of this iconic garment before donning a set of robes and exploring more of the town. A local shrine will provide a stunning cultural and historical backdrop for some beautiful photos.

Next, take part in a Japanese sweet-making workshop with a local artisan. Wagashi are traditional Japanese confections that are often delicately shaped to reflect the beauty of the changing seasons, and frequently harmoniously paired with bitter matcha green tea.

End the lovely day out with a cup of tea before heading to the nearby ryokan for a traditional Japanese lodging experience, or back to bustling Tokyo for the evening.
