What to Expect
Winter is the best season to view Mt. Fuji from Hakone.
Please select #1 or #2 from the Highlights section above for the 6-hour tour. The rest (#s 3 to 9) are additional options of #2.
WHY TAKE THIS TOUR?
We can modify it to suit your preferred level of physical exertion.
For example, if you feel like walking, we'll go on a walking tour. If you like museum-hopping, we will visit 2 to 3 art museums.
We can also take a tour of Tokyo and Kamakura.
Do you want to experience authentic Japanese culture? A home visit and sushi-making package is perfect for you!
My goal is to make your stay in Japan quite enjoyable.
See you in Hakone!
