Visit the world heritage site with its natural beauty and religious significance of the area. The guide will take you to those must see spots and off the beaten path spots.

What to Expect

Meet up with the guide at Kawaguchiko station and set to go for Mt. Fuji area excursion.

Visit to the spots of your selection from below. Most likely, you may not be able to cover all in the list.
Fuji five lakes(Kawaguchi, Yamanaka, Shoji, Sai and Motosu).
Aokigahara wild forest walk with lava caves.
Mt. Fuji fifth stage if road condition allows. It requires 2.5 hours of time for a round trip and an extra trafiic cost(2060jpy toll). During winter time, the access road tends to be closed.
Mt. Fuji trail hiking in summer season. Takes about 4 hours.
Sake brewery tour on reservation bases(500jpy/p,@9:30 and 15:00)
Oshino Hakkai: Mt. Fuji 60 year old snow melt water pond. So pure that you can see through the deep bottom. The spot may be congested with big group tourists.
Sengen shrine with 1000 years old cedar tree.

The local transportation measure impacts the number of the spots you visit.
The route bus trip can cover 2 to 3 spots. A chartered taxi can cover 5 to 6 from above list(except the 5th statge and a half day hiking).
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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if the number of the traveler is over 4?

If the bus is chosen, there is no problem. But when the taxi is chosen, we need a mini van or a mini bus, which will cost more than I suggested. I will look into the cost for them.

Can I make changes after I book?

Yes! If you need to make changes such as removing or adding someone to your booking or changing the date or time of your tour, contact us by phone or email

Starting and ending points of the tour.

After you secure your booking, the starting and ending points of your tour can be customized to your convenience (ex.: your hotel, nearby stations, etc.). Don't worry, we will take care of you! Some tours may have an extra fee for this service, make sure to check the tour page.

After booking a tour, the guide will accept (or decline) your booking within 24 hours. Then you will be noticed by email from Triplelights.

Is the price per person or per group?

The price is charged per group. Which means that you make a one-time payment for your entire group and the price will not change if it is less or more people.

Some guides accept extra people (more than the specified number) for an extra charge. Please check for the extras on the tour or booking page, or contact your guide directly to clarify.

“ Mt Fuji Motorcycle Tour ”

As the weather was on and off Arti kept in constant communication on go/no go. Everything was a breeze from getting to the Kofu bike shop from Tokyo, renting the bike and the tour itself. Arti is extremely knowledgeable and very kind to stop and explain the history and culture of what we are viewing. 5 star day all around. Next time we will definitely go again with Arti for tours if we are around Japan. Pleasure to have had Arti lead our family on the motorcycle tour.


Thank you very much for your favorable comments. The weather wasn’t perfect but we could enjoy Mt. Fuji area. I will keep improving my tours.

“ Awesome Mt. Fuji Tour ”

Akira (aka Arti) is a great guide. Very knowledgable of the area, kept on schedule, and provided us all of the points in the itinerary. He had fun stories and was great with conversation. He even provided some pointers for shopping for specific souvenir items. Although it is an extra few hundred dollars, the private taxi is worth his recommendation for the Mt. Fuji area - we wouldn't have been able to see everything without it.


Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my efforts to make my tours even better for the future.

“ Day trip to Mt Fuji ”

What an amazing day and what and amazing Tour Guide. We met Akira on the train and he had arranged a private driver and car as per our request. Akira made the day so run smoothly and made the day very interesting. He was happy to answer all our questions and more than happy to make changes during the day as the weather was spectacular. We were a group of 4 adults who enjoy seeing the amazing mountains. Our tour meant that we did not see many other tours despite it being peak season which just made the day all the more special.


Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my future tours even better.

“ Great Tour with a Local ”

Arti provided much in depth information for first timers taking the train from Tokyo which made it easy for us to purchase the right tickets and meet him at the meeting point. During the tour, he shared history and was quick to answer any questions we had. Touring with a local was an excellent experience, so different from the standard group tours and Arti brought us to shop from the source rather than souvenir shops. We totally enjoyed the tour with Arti and highly recommend him!


Thank you Dixie san and Gen san for your favorable commets. I also enjoyed our tour and sharing the thoughts with you two. I will make my maximum efforts to make my tour even better.
