If we joined a tour group we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the places at our own pace. Mr. Murayama was at our hotel very early to take us to the bus terminal, he even reserved our bus tickets ahead of time which was thoughtful. We enjoyed our hassle free trip to Fuji becaus...

We were able to see Mt Fuji without clouds on the way up, but by the time we arrived at the bus station, it was starting to get cloudy. Still, a wonderful sight to see, even with clouds. Nobu found a place for us to take a picture in front of Mt Fuji with almost no people around, a little known spot. Great.

From there we had an authentic Japanese-style lunch - we tried a number ...
