Spend some time in Harajuku...

Mount Fuji has always fascinated many artists and visitors. A sacred mountain located on the island of Honshu, its snow-covered summit and symmetrical, conical shape give it an exceptional beauty, worthy of the most beautiful landscapes in Japan. Like many tourists, don't hesitate to climb it.
After the climb, you can go to one of the hot springs at Kawaguchiko Onsen at the foot of the mountain, which will bring you comfort and relaxation after a day of walking.
