Discover the deep, vast world of Mt. Fuji, including the Aokigahara Sea of Trees located at its northern base on this trekking tour!
The Aokigahara Sea of Trees is a primeval forest that has formed on top of lava flows from Mt. Fuji. It has many mysterious lava caves, and is known for many legends. Some even say that compasses malfunction and one can be easily lost inside the forest; it could be due to volcanic activities - nobody really knows. We will follow the Tokai Nature Trail and visit two lava caves: Wind Cave and Ice Cave.
Wind Cave is the largest of the lava tubes in the forest. The walls are mostly made of basalt, and there is enough circulation of air inside. See lava terraces, rope-like lava forms, and more. Ice Cave, on the other hand, is covered year-round by ice. Walk carefully over the wet and uneven surfaces as you marvel at the ice formations deep in the cave.
