The Pinnacle of Music Festivals - Fuji Rock 2009

The Killers, Oasis, Franz Ferdinand, Basement Jaxx, Simian Mobile Disco and Ben Harper are among the acts already confirmed to play at this year's Fuji Rock (24-26 July) - one of the most extraordinary music festivals in the world.
The event has got bigger and bigger since it was first held in 1997 and today draws headliners from across the globe, with performers in previous years including Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Radiohead, Coldplay, Iggy Pop, Eminem and Bootsy Collins. First held at the base of the iconic Mt. Fuji, Fuji Rock now takes place amongst the foothills of Mt. Naeba.
Although it has grown over the years, the festival remains true to its principles of independence, respect for the environment, cooperation and great music - all with a Japanese twist.
This twist includes the chance to take a cable car almost 1,800m to the top of the mountain for a bird's eye view of the action, and the countryside beyond, or relaxing in a hot spring spa. There are many ways in which Fuji Rock is a little out of the ordinary.

As well as being perhaps the greenest festival in the world (the event is carbon neutral), it is also the cleanest with spotless toilets, showers and natural hot spring baths.
And instead of over-priced food, an array of vendors are on hand to provide a fantastic culinary selection - including Japanese specialities - at cheap prices, along with some quality Japanese beer.
On top of this Fuji Rock is full of ultra-friendly people.
InsideJapan Tours' seven night Fuji Rock Festival 2009 package includes three nights' hotel accommodation with breakfast in Tokyo, three-day festival tickets, camp site ticket, tent and sleeping mats (delivered to site), four-day rail passes covering all transfers within Japan and InsideJapan Tours' invaluable Info-Pack, from £839 per person.
