“ Great tour to Mt Fuji ”

Great tour to Mt Fuji even on a busy holiday. We had a fun time and saw a lot of sights in a short time. We all enjoyed it.

Nobu:

Thank you very much for your review. Unfortunately Jan 2 is one of the busiest days in Japan, so we faced a long queue and a heavy trafic jam. Even so, it is my great pleasure to know that you enjoyed beautiful Mt. Fuji and other sceneries. Thank you again for spending your time with me. Nobu
