The Helicopter Flycation, as it is known, will include a private helicopter tour of Mount Fuji and is offered by Mandarin Oriental Tokyo. Guests will sit in the Eurocopter Hermès Edition – the seats are calf leather from Hermès – from Tokyo, gazing at the views above the shore line of Sagami Bay and over Lake Ashinoko, before reaching Mount Fuji. Here they will have amazing, close-up views of the mountain before they head back to see the Tokyo SkyTree® tower.

Other perks include a stay in the 100sqm Oriental Suite, a roundtrip limousine transfer from the helipad to the hotel, a bottle of Ruinart Brut Rosé Champagne N.V. Prices start from JPY 775,000 or about US$6,491.
