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.

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

“ Best of Kamakura ”

My colleagues and I, all Kumon instructors had a wonderful day in Kamakura with Yuki. Yuki is warm, intelligent and knowledgeable guide also very flexible and accommodating. He kindly greeted us at our hotel in Yokohama despite a little snow and used public transport to and in Kamakura to save time. We visited the the great Buddha of Kamakura known for his Handsome Face, Hasedera temple from where you can also have a view over Kamakura city and the ocean, Hokokuji temple with the highlight of enjoying green tea in the peaceful, serene Bamboo forest, Hachimangu shrine where a wedding was taking place looked magical in the snow. He also took us to a local restaurant for a delicious home cooked meal with vegetarian choices and as a surprise took us to try out local sweet desserts. We re... read more

Yuki:

Dear Pushpa, Thank you for writing such a nice and detailed review of my tour. Kamakura is my favorite place to visit as it is not so crowded and easy to go from Tokyo. Please give my best regards to your colleagues, too. Yuki

“ Great tour with Yuki ”

We had a great tour with Yuki. He is knowledgeable and thoughtful in how he conducted the tour. We were traveling with our 8 year old daughter and 10month old son and Yuki was considerate of their needs as well. We felt confident touring Kyoto and Lake Kawaguchi without having to worry about the language barrier and/or navigating the public transport system and could focus on enjoying the sights.

Yuki:

Dear Fran, Thank you for your review of my tours. I was glad to guide your family without any trouble. One day tour to Kyoto is challenging for me too. We saw Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi and it was not so cold. It was more crowded than I expected at this time of the year, but I learned how to manage the tour in that condition. Best regards, Yuki

“ Yuki is Amazing! ”

Hello Everyone! If you are doing a day tour, Yuki is the best and highly recommended! He gives you historical background of every place we went to and took us shopping to the cheapest places! We will get him again when we come back to Japan for a visit! Thanks Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Robelyn, Thank you for writing a review of my tour of Tokyo. I was very happy when your family listens to my explanation of each site and gave me questions about our country and people. My tour is very flexible to reflect the interests of the guest so I changed my route to take you to my favorite ramen shop and added Ameyoko discount streets where you bought so many Japanese sweets. I hope your family has enjoyed traveling Japan. Best regards, Yuki
