Important

Summer is not good season to visit there as the possibility of viewing Mt.Fuji is low and there is no snow cap on it.

Please ask me the availability of this tour before you book it.
The wholesale area of Tsukiji will move to Toyosu on October 11th, 2018 but its outer market will stay at Tsukiji where we can enjoy good sushi and delicious Japanese foods.
I have a one day tour to Kyoto from Tokyo, but you have to pay the cost of about 30,000 JPY per person for the transportation of you and me.

The possibility of viewing Mt Fuji depends on the season. The chance will be about 50% during winter but less than 20% in summer time. Please take a look at the graph at the last page of the pictures of this tour. In case we can not see Mt.Fuji at all, we will visit other interesting places near the lake such as museums of Kimono and ice caves in Aokigahara forest.
If you book any of my tours on the other days, I can switch the date with one of them so that you have better chance to view Mt.Fuji.
The highway buses are sometimes fully booked so please book the tour one week before so that I can book your seats.
If the bus is not available, we have to use trains. read more

Frequently Asked Questions

Can we always expect to see Mt. Fuji in this tour ?

Not always. Your possibility of viewing Mt. Fuji will depnd on the season, please look at the last picture of this tour. But you can enjoy the Lake and other sightseeing such as Oshino hakkai, lava caves and museums.
If it will rain, I will propose you other areas in Tokyo such as museums and aquariums.
I will discuss it depending on the weatherforecast before the tour.

Where should we stay in Tokyo ?

I prefer to take the highway bus or express train for Lake Kawaguchi departing from Shinjuku station.

Why we use a tour taxi for some places ?

It takes long time to visit Arakurayuma park by public transportation.
It is inevitable to cover most popular places within a day.
If you don't want it, I don't insist and take you other places by public transportation.

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

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.

“ A perfect way to tour Tokyo - with Yuki! ”

Yuki is a fine gentleman and very knowledgeable tour guide (his English is excellent) who was able to adjust and tailor our day just as we wanted (even with last minute changes!). He was very helpful and for us the highlight was touring the Imperial Palace and also his amazing suggestion of a great sushi spot in Tsukiji. We avoided some of the busy areas for more traditional under-the-radar areas and got to take in the most of the culture. Yuki was a star and even helped take photos of us on our day. Hopefully he visits London sometime! Thank you Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Alex, Thank you for taking my tour and the nice view of my Tokyo tour. My tour is very flexible for adjusting to the interests of my guests. The Sushi restaurant is different from other places in Tsukiji. I’m glad you and Kim liked it. Enjoy your stay in Japan Yuki

“ A great guide to visit Hakone! ”

Our experience with Yuki was amazing: he knows perfectly the area and how to move fast there to visit everything in a day without missing any great spot. He proposed us a great tour and we asked him to include a particular Onsen we’d love to see: he included it and was a fantastic experience, having a Hot spring water bath looking to Mount Fuji; it was a memorable day that couldn’t be possible without his knowledge and experience. He even accompanied us to the entry of Chinatown for having dinner after the tour! Yuki is a great professional and a great person too. We’ll always remember this day in Hakone, thanks for everything, Yuki!!!!

Yuki:

Dear Antonio, Thank you for your review of my tour so soon. It was a good experience to have the outdoor bath with you. I will include the bath into my tour. Please give my best regard to your family, too. Yuki
