What to Expect

Hakone is one of the most famous sightseeing spots and hot spring resorts in Japan.
I will show you around the Hakone area. With " Hakone Freepass " I can take you to the all famous sightseeing places, such as Lake Ashi, Hakone Jinja Shrine, Hakone Checkpoint, Great Boiling Valley, Hakone Open Air Museum and Hakone Venetian Glass Museum.

If it is fine and you are lucky, you can see Mt Fuji over the Lake Ashi. Hakone is one of the most famous Mt Fuji viewing spots in Japan.
Lake Ashi is the symbol of Hakone. Along this lake there are many hot springs, historical sites, museums, Japanese gardens and Japanese-style inn called Ryokan.

Hakone Jinja Shrine was founded in 757. This shrine is where the Tokugawa and other famous samurai families worshipped. You can see the red torii gate of this shrine on the shore of Lake Ashi.

Hokone Checkpoint is an important site for the history of transport and communication during the Edo period. The Tokugawa Shogunate settled 53 Checkpoints along the Tokaido Road. Hakone Checkpoint is considered to have been the biggest and most important of them all.

Great Boiling Valley is a volcanic valley with active sulphur vents and hot springs in Hakone. Here you can try some famous " Black Egg " - a local specialty of eggs hard-boiled in the hot springs. It is said that eating one of these will add 7 years to your life.

Hakone Open Air Museum is Japan's first open-air museum, opened in 1969 in Hakone. It has collections of artworks made by Picasso, Henry Moore and many others. It features over a thousand sculptures and works of art. Also here you can enjoy " hot spring foot-bath " and relax.

“ Dai is incredible! ”

We had a group of four and sent Dai a list of things we were interested in and he did an incredible job of planning a great day around the things we wanted to do. He was informative and personable. His schedule was aggressive but he was very accommodating. The little things are what separated him from any tour guide I have ever had: He was attentive to how long we wanted to stay places, could anticipate things we would like, Ensured we had plenty of time for souvenir shopping, taught us how to use the Subway, planned plenty of bathroom breaks, and had an immense amount of patience for our individual interests. I highly recommend doing a tour like this on your first full day in Tokyo and more specifically doing it with Dai as your guide.

Dai:

Thank you so much for taking your precious time to write such a thoughtful review, Jeffery. I had a great time with you and your friends. It was super fun to talk and share the time with you guys. I hope your business is going well in Tokyo and Sydney as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family and friends. Thanks a million !!!

“ Amazing and Busy Tour of Tokyo ”

Dai was an excellent tour guide. He planned a phenomenal day in Tokyo based on suggestions I gave him and he was extremely flexible when I told him last minute that my hotel changed. He taught me how to use the Tokyo Metro and how to properly enjoy sushi in the Tsukiji Fish Market. At the end of the tour we were an hour ahead of schedule and Dai knew exactly where to take me so that no time was wasted.

Dai:

Thank you so much, Lisa. I really appreciate your feedback. Things mixed up a little, but fortunately we made it in the end. Hopefully see you all again sometime in the future. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your family, of course, your talented son, Solomon. Thanks a million !!!

“ The very best ”

Dai - Thank you for giving us such a wonderful experience of your city. It was very obvious to us that you are a world traveler and know exactly what a new visitor requires in such a large city. Such interest and knowledge is what every guide needs and Dai certainly had that. Thank you Mary Lee

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Mary. It was my great pleasure to have showed you around Tokyo. I also had an amazing time with you and your family and learned so much from 3 of you. Hope you will have great days and wonderful memories in Japan. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family, Martin and Yvonne. Thanks a million !!!

“ So Informative ”

My partner and I really enjoyed our tour with Dai. In addition to showing us all around Tokyo, I loved that he took the time to provide us the history and fun facts for each of the places we went to. I feel like my understanding of the history and culture of Japan grew so much as did my appreciation for it. Dai was super open to my many questions and didn't hesitate to answer them. We ended up having to cut back some of the places we went to at the end as we took too much time at each place but I didn't feel like I missed out. I also appreciated that Dai took a few extra minutes to make sure we reached our final destination and made sure we knew how to get back to our hotel from there.

Dai:

Thank you Lena for giving me such a thoughtful review. I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed my tour. I also had a super wonderful day with you guys. And it was so much fun to talk with you and your partner about many things. I believe you could enjoy staying in Japan after my tour as well. Next time if you come back to Japan, I would love to show you guys around other places and cities. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your partner Rowdy. Thanks a million !!!
