Mandarin Oriental, Tokyo is delighted to announce the launch of its lavish accommodation package, Helicopter Flycation, which includes a private helicopter tour of Mount Fuji. Guests will fly aboard a Eurocopter Hermès Edition from Tokyo above the shoreline of Sagami Bay and over Lake Ashinoko to reach Mt. Fuji, where they can enjoy close-up views of the mountain before turning back for a sighting of Tokyo SkyTree® tower. Within its spacious interior, the helicopter has calf leather seats specially made by Hermès.
The UNESCO world heritage site and national treasure, Mount Fuji, is a 3,776-metre (12,380 ft.) high dormant volcano 100 kilometers southwest of Tokyo. Its breathtaking, gentle symmetrical lines and snow-capped summit have come to represent Japanese serenity and made it the country’s national symbol. In spring, blossoming cherry trees create a pink carpet at the foot of the mountain, and from July 1, the official, summer-long Mt. Fuji climbing season begins. The mountain is a favorite destination for international and local travelers in Japan.
