Our family of four which includes two boys ages 8 and 13 enjoyed a wonderful time touring the Mt Fuji area with Yumiko. She is an excellent tour guide. Yumiko is not only very knowledgeable, but she is very easy going and truly a pleasure to be with. The night before our tour, we decided to change the original plan and Yumiko was unphased. Her main concern was to meet our family’s needs and she was very accommodating. We originally planned a full day tour with Yumiko, but ended up only touring Mt Fuji with Yumiko for a half day and we didn’t finalize our plans until the morning of our tour. Yumiko definitely rose to the challenge and still manage to provide us with an amazing tour. We traveled by taxi in order to make good use of our time and stared off with the ice cave in Aokigahara Forest afterwards, rnjoying some very interesting corn flavored soft serve ice cream then, off to some awesome vantage points to view Mt Fuji from the shorelines of two of the Fuji Five Lakes, Lake Kawaguchi and Saiko Lake, and Oishi Park while educating us along the way. We finished our tour strolling around Lake Kawaguchi while enjoying some wonderful Fujiyama cookies. We cannot say enough good things about Yumiko and would definitely recommend her to guide you around Mt Fuji. Thank you Yumiko for our memorable tour of Mt Fuji!!
Thank you for your great review, Rachel!! Your tour ended up a half day, but I believe that the most important thing is for you to fully enjoy your time during your trip. It was a beautiful day, and you could see the snow-capped Mt. Fuji with clear sky. The forest was also bright. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the flexible tour in Mt. Fuji area. And I'm sure you did enjoy shopping and amusement park in the afternoon! Please enjoy the rest of your travel in Japan. Thank you very much. Yumiko
