Best access to Mt. Fuji

       Most tourists ask me to arrange to go to view Mt. Fuji and enjoy major famous sites in the surrounding area.
       Usually, they stay in a hotel in Tokyo city area and enjoy One Day Tour to Mt. Fuji from Tokyo.
       Sometimes few tourists who drop in Shimizu port in Shizuoka Prefecture by a big cruiser. Shimizu city is located just south of Mt.Fuji. It looks very convenient location geographically to visit Mt. Fuji and some famous sites close to the mountain.
       But it is very difficult for me to guide them around Mt. Fuji. I live in a city adjacent to Tokyo, and 150 km east from Shimizu port. They’d better hire a guide in Shimizu city.

       Best access to Mt. FujiBest access to Mt. FujiBest access to Mt. FujiGenerally, there are several ways to enjoy Mt. Fuji beauty as follows. You have to tell me your rough idea and budget in advance. Then I will recommend you best plan accompanied by me.

The plans are;
a) Private van with a driver;
We hire a van with a driver in Tokyo and make a round drive. It will cost about 60,000 yen/day/4persons, 62,000 yen/day/6persons, 72,000 yen/day/9persons. The course will cover every attractive place in the area.
b) Bus tour;
The tour also covers major famous points in the area.
The bus will depart from the bus center in Tokyo and return to the point. Many bus companies sell the tour. Ticket price is about 15,000 yen/person.
c) Reserved train tour;
The Odakyu private railway line sells a one-day round ticket from Shinjuku station to Mt.Fuji and Hakone resort area. You can enjoy ropeway and cruise on Ashinoko lake. You can see Mt.Fuji from several points in the course.
The ticket is sold at 6,000 yen/person.
d) JR Line route;
We can go to Mt.Fuji by JR line from Shinjuku station in Tokyo city area. We can book a reserved sheet. We will change lines two or three times before reaching the nearest station to Mt. Fuji. You can use Japan Rail Pass if you have it.
e) The Fifth-station of Mt. Fuji;
If you wish to visit the fifth-station of Mt.Fuji, you can hire a taxi at the station of Kawaguchiko. It takes three hours to make a round drive with 21,000 yen/4 persons including a guide.
Please feel free to ask me for details. (**********)

We spent a very interesting half day with Masato. He is an extremely knowledgeable guide telling about Japanese daily life, customs and habits. Although time was short we had diverse experiences, seeing, tasting and trying out exotic (for us) food. Masato is friendly and helpful and really enjoys to guide you through his city.
