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 3776-metre-high dormant volcano, 100 kilometres south-west of Tokyo. Its breathtaking, gentle symmetrical lines and snow-capped summit have come to represent Japanese serenity. In spring, blossoming cherry trees create a pink carpet at the foot of the mountain, and from 1 July, the official summer-long Mt. Fuji climbing season begins.
Helicopter Flycation package prices start at JPY775,000 including:
- One night’s accommodation for two in an Oriental Suite
- Private helicopter charter cruise to Mt. Fuji (approximately 80 minutes)
- Round-trip limousine transfer to helipad and hotel
- Full breakfast for two, served at K’shiki or Oriental Lounge
- A bottle of Ruinart Brut Rosé Champagne N.V.

Package rates are subject to 8 per cent consumption tax, 15 per cent service charge and an accommodation tax of JPY200 per person, per night. Bookings can be made up to three business days before date of flight. Flights aboard the Eurocopter Hermès Edition are subject to availability.
