An all-in-one autumn bus tour from Tokyo is one of the easiest \u2014 and most memorable \u2014 ways to see the changing colours. If you're keen to see some fall foliage, but not so keen on navigating multiple trains, then a bus tour is the way to go. There are a number of Tokyo bus tours available during the fall season (October to December), where all you have to do is kick back and\u00a0relax while being ferried from one fabulous sight to another. Here are our top picks. 1. Mt. Fuji and Hakone tour From per adult This tour is popular year round, but autumn adds an extra dimension. You'll visit the fifth station of Mount Fuji, cruise nearby Lake Ashi, and ride the Hakone Ropeway. Throughout the tour you'll be treated to incredible views of fall foliage. \u00a0 There are several options for pick-up locations in Tokyo, and you can also upgrade to include lunch (vegetarian, vegan, and halal options are available). 2.
