“ Great Day - Great Guide ”

I wanted to see Mt Fuji, the ice caves and walk through the woods. Prior before the tour, Yuki made us aware that the weather might be very bad and if I want I can change the date for the tour. As I could not change the date, I confirmed that I still want to do the planned tour. Unfortunately the weather was so bad, that we were not able to go up Mt Fuji. Yuki made us aware during our train ride. He was so pro active and creating an instand change in the tour that we got the most out of the day. We saw the caves, a little original village, great original food, and a fantastic walk through the forrest. He was very knowledgeable and it was fun to be with him. I would recommend him as a tour guide and book him anytime again. Thank you Yuki for a great day

Yuki:
Dear Karin, Thank you very much for your great review ! I am glad you enjoyed my tour although we can not see Mt.Fuji. It was my first time to visit the caves and Aokigahara forest. You helped me to expand my tour. Please give my best regards to your husband. Yuki

Dear Helen, Thank you for writing the review of our tour ! I feel sorry for you to miss Mt.Fuji, I hope you could see it on someother day. You have a wonderful family, I enjoyed to travel with them,too. Best regards, Yuki.
