    Visit a serene shrine and one of Japan’s most stunningly natural seaside settings, both lying in the shadow of majestic Mount Fuji, Japan’s highest mountain. Settle in for a drive into the beautiful countryside that lies in the foothills of Mount Fuji. Japan’s national symbol and one of its most extraordinary settings, Mount Fuji has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a sacred place and source of artistic inspiration. Prior to ascending Mount Fuji, climbers often pray at Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine, which you’ll visit. The shrine has been considered a guardian deity that prevents natural disasters and ensures easy childbirth. More than 500 cherry trees grace the surrounding grounds. Inside, there is a pond fed by melting snow and ice from Mount Fuji. The pond has been designated a Special Natural Monument and attracts pilgrims that come to purify themselves in the clear water. Next stop is the Mt. Fuji's 2th Station, at approximately 4,700 feet. You will have chance to see dynamic view of Mt. Fuji. The 2th Station offers stellar views of the mountain's magnificence. Last stop is the Mt.Fuji World Heritage Centre. This is newly openen in December 2017 and consists of three buildings. The central building is covered with the wood lattice and characteristic shaped of the inverted cone. This wood lattice is made from Fuji cypress. From the top floor, you will enjoy magnificent view of Mt. Fuji as picturesque.

    Sake Tasting & Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center

    Sample a selection of sake made with water from Mount Fuji and then visit a heritage center dedicated to the mountain and its influence throughout Japan.


    A scenic drive through the countryside will bring you to Fuji Takasago, a sake brewery founded in 1831 at the foot of Mount Fuji, where its groundwater is most abundant. The water from the snow melt that runs off the mountain takes nearly 100 years to filter through the earth’s underground layers, leaving the water extraordinarily pure.


    Following an enlightening tour of the brewery, where you will watch rice being turned into sake, you will be offered a selection of Fuji Takasago’s rice wines. During the sampling, you may notice that the Mount Fuji water imparts a mild taste to the sake. Being high in amino acids, these sakes are also rich in umami, a flavor associated with rice wine.


    You will gain a different perspective of Japan’s most celebrated peak at the Mount Fuji World Heritage Center nearby. Its exhibitions include Japanese art and literature that the mountain has inspired and paper screens that show Mount Fuji changing with the seasons. Another highlight is the building’s inverted lattice cone sculpture that mimics the shape of Mount Fuji when viewed in the reflecting pool.


    The center was named to recognize UNESCO declaring Mount Fuji to be a World Heritage site for its solitary beauty, iconic shape and deep impact on Western art. It may well be the world’s most famous stratovolcano.

    OVERVIEW

    Behold the natural beauty within sprawling Seogwipo and experience one of its most vibrant markets, an experience sure to leave you with an understanding of the city’s diversity. You will likely hear the roar of Cheonjiyeon Falls before seeing the cascade, which plummets straight down from a sheer rock cliff. From the viewing platform, the water appears to fall from the heavens, which is appropriate since Cheonjiyeon translates to “sky connected to land.” Similarly, the uninhabited island of Saeseom was named for its dominant natural feature – the silvergrass that flourishes there. To reach this park-like oasis, you will walk across Jeju Island’s longest pedestrian bridge, which will offer spectacular views of the sea and the nearby marina for fishing boats. As a contrast to this tranquil scene, you will browse Seogwipo Maeil Olle, the island’s largest market. Its more than two hundred stalls are laden with most everything imaginable although Korean street food is the specialty.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Admire the beauty of Cheonjiyeon Falls, a roaring cascade within the city limits.
    • Cross a pedestrian bridge to Saeseom Island, a natural paradise that lies just offshore.
    • Stroll among the hundreds of stalls in Jeju Island’s largest market.

    OVERVIEW

    Take in the spectacular view from atop crater-shaped Seaongsan Sunrise Rock and then visit a traditional village that reveals the rich culture of Jeju Island. The rock is named in part because it lies on the island’s easternmost shore and attracts locals that gather to watch the sunrise. Formed millennia ago in a series of underwater volcanic eruptions, the crater looks like a crown because 99 jagged rocks surround its huge circular top. It is so stunning that UNESCO designated it a World Natural Heritage. You may ascend to the jungle-covered bowl at the top or remain below. Both perspectives offer fabulous views. You will next visit Seongeup Folk Village. Created as an expression of traditional Korean life, the re-created village contains several rock-walled thatched-roofed houses. Other highlights include Confucian shrines, fortress ruins and ancient government buildings. Many of the traditions and even the dialect spoken there have been handed down over the generations.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Take in the stunning views from atop a volcanic crown-like crater.
    • Recognize the reasons why UNESCO declared the crater a World Natural Heritage.
    • Admire the traditional way of life in a re-created Korean folk village.
    • See village buildings ranging from Confucian shrines to thatched-roof houses.

    OVERVIEW

    Delve into the engaging local culture through revealing attractions such as O’Sulloc Tea Museum, which takes the island’s reverence for tea to a new level. You can expect to learn about Korea’s traditional tea ceremonies, see unusual tea cups from around the world and perhaps even sample green tea ice cream. From the museum’s second-floor observatory, you will be treated to sweeping views of the surrounding plantation and its terraced fields of tea. Yakcheonsa Temple will offer a glimpse into the island’s Buddhist culture. A stream spills into a serene pond at the base of the temple, and chances are you will see believers drinking from its supposedly medicinal waters. Jeju Island was volcanically formed, which will be clearly evident at foreboding Jusanjeolli Cliff. It features almost perfect hexagonal columns that formed during the Pleistocene Period when molten lava hit the cold ocean water, quickly cooled, fractured and shot high into the air in columns.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Become immersed in the surprisingly complex world of tea at a museum devoted to it.
    • Browse a Buddhist temple built next to a stream that is supposedly medicinal.
    • View the ancient hexagonal columns that quickly cooling lava formed at Jusanjeolli Cliff.

    Delve into Japanese culture by visiting an art museum, enjoying a ritualistic tea ceremony and admiring one of the most spectacular views of sacred Mount Fuji.


    Visit the Tokaido Hiroshige Art Museum in the fishing village of Yui. More than a thousand woodblock prints from Utagawa Hiroshige, a 19th-century master of the ukiyo-e genre, are beautifully displayed here. As you will discover while browsing the works of art, the ukiyo-e genre typically depicts subjects of everyday life that include landscapes, birds and flowers.


    Hiroshige’s genius for landscape composition and color in works such as The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido influenced European painters such as Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh.


    At a tearoom in a nearby park, you’ll enjoy a tea ceremony. You will be served traditional green tea, but the ceremony involves more than merely the beverage. It is a ritualistic art form in which the tea must be prepared and presented in a certain manner known as the Way of Tea.


    Drive to the seaside pine grove Miho no Matsubara. The grove consists of more than 50,000 pine trees, including a 650-year-old tree thought to have mythical powers. The view from the shore with Mount Fuji lording over the scenery has been rated one of the top three views in Japan.

    OVERVIEW

    Marvel at glorious Mount Fuji while riding a cable car to a hilltop Shintō shrine and then delve into the Japanese culture by making chopsticks. While some people climb the 1,000 or so steps leading to the Kunozan Toishogu shrine, you will ride to the summit. The higher you ascend, the greater the views of the city below and majestic Mount Fuji beyond. No other sight in Japan is more iconic than the snow-capped mountain, the tallest peak in Japan. More wonders await you within the shrine complex, a collection of brightly painted ornate buildings dedicated to the shōgun that unified Japan in the early 17th century. Be sure to notice the well-armed guardian statue near the Romon gate. You will experience Japan’s creativity at Sumpu Takumi Shuku, a cultural workshop where artisans produce traditional crafts using centuries-old techniques. There you will have the opportunity to produce your own pair of lacquered chopsticks hands-on.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    OVERVIEW

    Take in the spectacular view from atop crater-shaped Seaongsan Sunrise Rock and then visit a traditional village that reveals the rich culture and heritage of Jeju Island. After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a leisurely 50 minute drive to Seaongsan Sunrise Rock, a crater named in part because it lies on Jeju’s easternmost shore and attracts locals that gather to watch the sunrise. Formed a millennia ago in a series of underwater volcanic eruptions, the crater looks like a crown because 99 jagged rocks surround the top of the huge circular crater. It is so stunning that UNESCO named it a World Heritage Site. You may walk up the stairs leading to the jungle-covered bowl at the top or remain below. Both perspectives offer spectacular views. Seaongsan, which means “castle hill,” was originally an islet but a thin strip of land now connects it to the main island. The crater is an outstanding example of a lava cone and volcanologists continually study it, as do botanists who come for the endemic flora. Next, you will drive inland to a wide plain at the foot of Hallasan Mountain, where you will find the Seongeup Folk Village. Created as an expression of traditional Korean life, the re-created village contains several rock-walled thatched-roofed houses. Other highlights include Confucian shrines, fortress ruins and ancient government buildings. Many of the traditions and even the dialect spoken here have been handed down over the generations. After visiting, you will re-board your coach and travel back to the pier.

    HIGHLIGHTS

    • Take in the stunning views from atop a volcanic crown-like crater.
    • Recognize the reasons why UNESCO declared the crater a World Heritage site.
    • See village buildings ranging from Confucian shrines to thatched-roof houses.

    See how the clear mountain spring water that originates on Mt. Fuji is used for rainbow trout farming and to grow wasabi. After about 50 years of underground filtering, the water emerges in natural springs or is extracted to supply the people of the Shizuoka Prefecture with water of extraordinary quality. The area supports more rainbow trout farms than anywhere else in Japan, one of which you will visit. It will be an enlightening experience as you will discover how these beautifully colored fish are cultivated in great numbers. The majority of the wasabi consumed in Japan also comes from the prefecture. After observing how it is grown, you will sample a rice ball that contains freshly ground wasabi and rainbow trout. Few foods are so emblematic of the area and the obsession with the pure water from Mt. Fuji. At Jimba Waterfall, you will watch that water gently cascade into a pool below.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Gain insight into how rainbow trout are farmed in water that originates on Mt. Fuji.
    • Visit a farm that relies on that same pure water to grow wasabi or Japanese horseradish.
    • Sample a traditional rice ball made with wasabi and rainbow trout.
    • Behold the beauty of Jimba Waterfall, whose water comes from Mt. Fuji.
