Enjoy a spectacular view of Mount Fuji from the top of Yasaburo-dake peak!
A 5-minute cable car ride takes visitors to a panoramic viewing platform offering a clear view of Mount Fuji in the distance.

Follow the trail to your left after the platform and hike up for 15 minutes to find yourself on Yasaburo-dake peak, atop a huge monolith completely free of safety fences, from which you can experience an obstacle-free 360° view of Mount Fuji and the Southern Alps and let the rest of the world dissolve away. That feeling as though you are standing on top of the world is truly unlike any other.

The summit is known as a great "power spot" within Yamanashi prefecture, meaning a spiritual place where one can feel in-tune with nature, as it is said that a "dragon vein" –an invisible line carrying energy from the earth in Feng Shui philosophy– flows from Mount Fuji through this mountain.
