Popular Trips

Mt. Fuji Overnight Trips

A 4-day trip which includes free time in Tokyo and a stay at the New Sanno Hotel. The fee for the trip is $150 plus the hotel charge, which varies according to rank/grade. The hike is strenuous for those not in peak condition, and children under 10 are not allowed. But for those who accept the challenge, this is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Three trips per year are conducted in July and August.

Surf & Camping Overnight Trips

This overnight trip to Hamada Beach is a relaxing way to spend a weekend at the beach. On the first day we will set up camp and then head to the beach to enjoy some surfing. With no itinerary, this trip will cater to each individual. On the second day we will enjoy the morning waves and sun and then head home around lunchtime.
