Private Aokigahara Forest & Ice Cave Tour

by Fuji Walk Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
Price Not Available

Experience the otherworldly beauty of Aokigahara, a dense forest of twisting trees near the base of Mount Fuji. With a private guide leading the course, wind your way through woods that sit atop hardened lava until you reach an ice cave. Step inside the chilly cavern to see icicles and icy walls that glimmer like crystals in the dark.

Following pickup from your Fujinomiya hotel, set off for a short ride toward Aokigahara. Along the way, make a stop at Lake Motosu, 1 of the 5 lakes surrounding towering Mount Fuji. Here, enjoy time to snap photos of the glassy water sitting beneath the snow-capped peak before continuing on to the forest.

Once you reach your destination, get ready for an adventure unlike any other. Trek through the verdant forest, marveling at the way the trees twist and turn out of a forest floor made of ancient lava. Enjoy the supernatural sound of silence as you walk through the woods, eventually reaching one of the natural caves that are scattered throughout the forest.

With your helmet and headlamp, make your way into the mouth of the cave, disappearing into a mysterious world where the temperature rarely rises above 37 degrees Fahrenheit (3 C). Wander along craggy passageways and walls of ice until you reach the most magical scene at the end of the cave. Stand in awe as you gaze up at the glimmering icicles that hang from the ceiling before making your way back out for the return ride to Fujinomiya.

I absolutely loved this tour and I recommend it for anyone that prefers having a personal experience. There wasn't a big group of strangers, just myself and good friend of mine. The tour guide was friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. For those who want to know the English level of the tour guide, the guides English is very good. We had a lot of different conversations throughout the day.
