Depending on your selection and the local weather of the day, our itinerary may vary.
The bus ticket costs 2550jpy@person.(times # of the traveler + guide)
A taxi costs 7000@hour. (model course is 7000 x 5 = 35000jpy)
Since the round trip train fare between Tokyo and Fuji is about 8000jpy /p, many tourists over 4 persons hire a chauffeured van from their hotel in Tokyo. I can meet up in the hotel and ride all the way to Fuji, do excursion and come back to the hotel in the same car. It is a door to door service and costs from around 50000jpy depending on the vehicle size, on top of my tour price.
