Your guide will meet you and you will board a bus promptly at 9:00am to start your tour. Your first stop Arakurayama Sengen Park which is a renowned photogenic spot where Mt. Fuji and a five-story pagoda can be seen simultaneously. On arrival you will disembark off the bus near Shimoyoshida Station, and walk for about 10 minutes to the entrance of Arakurayama Sengen Park. From the park entrance, there is a climb of 397 steps to the five-story pagoda. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the peak. Those that have trouble walking can view Mt. Fuji from the park entrance, but will not be able to see the scene of Mt. Fuji and the five-story pagoda together.
