Important

For Nikko tour, I would like to meet up in tokyo or chiba area. If you want to meet up in Nikko, you need to pay for my transportation fee to Nikko.

- According to the weather records of Fuji city, the possibility of viewing Mt Fuji depends on the season, about 80% in winter while less than 30% in summer.
- The ropeway and cruising at Lake Ashi will either be suspended or unable to operate as scheduled because natural hazards such as snow or strong winds are forecast.

“ Beyond our expectations ”

We new we had a short day and wanted to experience Tokyo from a cultural viewpoint. He was able to accomplish that by using the subway to get to all corners of Tokyo . We visited 5 or 6 sites, walked a lot and got the feeling of Tokyo that we wanted. His recommendation for a "Tokyo" lunch fit right in. Highly recommend him to others

Hideaki:

Dick-san. Thank you very much for your review. We walked nearly 20,000 steps in one day with only lunch break! How energetic you and your wife are! I’m glad that you like Okonomiyaki. It’s my favorite food, too. I also shared a pleasant time with you and your wife. Hideaki Murayama

“ hassle free and laid back trip to Mt. Fuji ”

We thought of getting a guide because we have varying ages in our family , I have two older children and two much younger ones. 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 because of him. My children were free to stay longer at the sights if they wanted to and we were able to choose the places we wanted to see. This was our first time in Tokyo so he was also very kind in providing some information for us for the rest of our stay. Overall, he was a very pleasant and kind man. Thank you Murayama:-)

Hideaki:

Thank you very much for your review, Arlene-san. We were so lucky that day that the sky is so clear and we were able to enjoy a full view of Mt. Fuji with a snow cap. As your family is so nice, I also shared a pleasant time. Hideaki Murayama

“ Tour of Tokyo ”

My family and I had a very good tour of Tokyo with Hideaki. We were able to do many things in one day and felt like we were able to accomplish a lot during such a short time thanks to Hideaki showing us around. I definitely recommend him to others.

Hideaki:

Thank you very much for your review, Sarah-san. We were very lucky that we could see Mt. Fuji from Tokyo Metropolitan Government building. I still remember your mother's smile when we visited Kusunoki Masashige statue. Thank you very much again.

“ Hideaki is an excellent guide for your trip in Tokyo ”

Hideaki or we always call him as "Mura san". He is very nice person, he is very detailed and considerate. He responded to my email quickly, making offer of travel proposal with detail. He was also very helpful to us as my wife missed her wallet at the mall. We greatly enjoyed the 1 day excursion tour enjoy the beauty of fuji mountain from hakone, and lake ashi with Mura san. He also gave us basic information how to get to osakadan and interesting locations that we can visit in osaka and kyoto. He is an interesting guys and with lots of travel experience understands travellers needa. We highly recommend Mura san as your tour guide in Tokyo !!.

Hideaki:

Bonggal-san, thank you very much and I also enjoyed Hakone tour with you and your family. I was really a lucky day, isn’t it? We were able to find your wife’s wallet easily and see beautiful Mt. Fuji. Double lucky!! Chatting with you reminded me of my poor Bahasa Indonesia, lah. Thank you very much. Hideaki Murayama
