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.

“ Very Informative Tour ”

We were visiting Tokyo for only a few days and therefore wanted a tour guide to show us as many places as possible. Dai was great at doing just that! We would definitely not be able to see so many places in one day if we were to do it just by ourselves. The tour was very flexible and Dai adjusted the itinerary based on our interests. While touring, he shared with us a lot of information about Japan and Tokyo. He even stayed with us a little extra to make sure we find our way to pick up our Japan Rail Pass. He was great and we found that this tour was a must during our trip! We loved it!

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Anna. It was my great pleasure to show you guys around Tokyo. It was a super FUN time to spend time with you guys. I believe you could have amazing days in Japan after my tour as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your cool man, Ivan. Thanks a million !!! Muchas Gracias !!!

“ Facilitating Tokyo ”

Dai was the perfect representative and guide for our first day in Tokyo. He helped us to navigate the subway and made it less intimidating. He was very knowledgeable, explained the water cleansing process at Sensoji Temple which served us we'll throughout our visit in Japan. Our kids requested a mandatory visit to Akihabara which would have been completely overwhelming without Dai who also helped our son to track down a sought-after Yu-gi-oh card. He also introduced us to an owl cafe. We highly recommend Dai.

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me a kind review, Gena. It was really fun to be able to spend time with you and your amazing family for only 4 hours. Next time if you come back to Japan, I would love to show you around other places in Tokyo and cities in Japan. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your awesome family. Thanks a million !!! Blessed !!!

“ An amazing day well-spent with Dai in Tokyo ”

Dai was a great and very knowledgeable guide who knew both his history and his ways around Tokyo very well. The tour was already mapped for us when he arrived at our hotel in the morning and it was later on personalised to our wishes. He was extremely flexible and made our tour amazing just as we hoped it would be and more. On top of all the must-sees, Dai also took us to a Samurai museum, an authentic tempura restaurant, had us tried some desserts and it was just fantastic. He showed us the Japanese customs and was very patient with us wherever we went. We realised the day after the tour that we have seen everything needed to be seen in Tokyo after 8 hours tour and how difficult it was to get used to the busy and crowded subway. We would have a hard time doing half of what we did with Dai... read more

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a considerate review, Christer. It was absolutely my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I'm really glad to hear that you guys enjoyed my tour. It was super fun to talk and share the time with you guys. And I was impressed with abundance of your knowledge about SAMURAI. I hope to see you again sometime in the near future. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to lovely Nita. Thanks a million !!!

“ Friendly - Energetic - Experience - Knowledgeable - Awesome ”

Me and my brother have a 11h layover at Narita airport, Tokyo. Dai waits for us at Ueno station on time. We are very impressed with his ability to guide us through the crowded metro system of Tokyo without a moment of hesitation or uncertainty. We visit Tsukiji fish market, Imperial Palace, Asakusa and Akihabara Districts. Dai introduces to us in detail on the culture, history, food and interesting fact in each locations. Dai is extremely patient with us, never rush, always smile and exciting when he talks about Japanese culture. Happily taking photo for us, and he even tries different poses and angles for us, despite nobody asking him to. Dai has been backpacking to more than 150+ countries, and you can clearly see this when you talk and walk with him. He is very knowledgeable to ot... read more

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful review, Cao. You didn’t have a lot of time, it was actually 6 hours in Tokyo and you had to go back to Narita Airport to catch your flight back to Canada. But it was absolutely super fun to talk and share the time with you and your brother. Next time you come to Japan, hopefully at least two weeks, I will show you around other places in Tokyo and different cities in Japan. Hope to see you again sometime in the near future. Thanks a million !!! Cam on !!!

“ Day around Tokyo ”

Dai was a wonderful tour guide! He met us promptly at our hotel in Shibuya and had the day planned out for us already. In a short time, we were able to cover many different areas of Tokyo with the subway. Dai knew his way well around the subway stations and got us everywhere efficiently to make the most of our time. Dai was also very accommodating and flexible. We gave him requests beforehand, but also throughout the tour. He accommodated all the requests, even with such short notice. Our family had a great time with Dai and would tour with him again!

Dai:

Thank you so much for giving me such a considerate review, Melissa. It was my great pleasure to show you around Tokyo. I was lucky because your family are so kind and helpful. It was absolutely much fun to share the time with you and your awesome family. I believe you could enjoy staying in Osaka and Kyoto as well. Please take good care of yourself and give my best regards to your super wonderful family. Thanks a million !!!
