This tour is great, though admittedly it relies entirely on the weather. We couldn't see Fuji much on the way, but once we got to the 4th station (the 5th was closed for weather, presumably the season), the summit was visible, and for the remainder of the afternoon the clouds would be in and out. And luckily for us, we were able to do the ferry and cable rides, both of which had views of the summit, though reportedly the tour the day before us was not able to do either the ferry or cable rides. So it depends on the weather. Lunch was delicious, as well as nice and hot. And our guide, Michiko, spoke great English and was a fantastic guide!! Not only did she balance enough down time on the bus with history/information, she made sure everyone knew how to get to their hotel from the train station. Overall, great tour!
