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

What happens after I book a tour?

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

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.

“ 1 Day amazing tour of Tokyo for the first comers ”

Yuki was an excellent guide! We really enjoyed his services. The first time in Tokyo you certainly need someone experienced to guide your way around. Highly recommended!

“ Great Day in Tokyo ”

Yuki was a great guide. It was really nice to have a personal guide, who gave us many options on how we wanted our day to go. He was right on time to start the day, and the day had a good pace. His english was very good, and he brought us to a great place for lunch. I would definitely use him again when we travel back to Tokyo.

Yuki:

Dear David, Thank you for writing nice review of my tour and highest evaluation. I am very glad to know you enjoyed my tour. Please come again! Yuki

“ Memorable visit to Hakone ”

We took the tour of Hakone with Yuki on Oct 4, 2018. It was a cloudy day with little amount of rain hence we were not able to see Mount FUji. Mr. Yuki had already informed us about it but still we went ahead with the trip. We saw the Hakone Open Air museum, Gora Park, Ropeway to see the volcanic valley and tour of Lake Ashi. The trip was well organised and paced with Mr. Yuki, though we were lagging behind in time in our trip but still Mr. Yuki planned our trip in such a way that we did not miss out on seeing any sight seeing places and enjoyed our trip to Hakone even if we could not see Mount Fuji.

Yuki:

Dear Puja, Thank you for your review. Sorry for the poor weather, but I did my best for your tour. Best regards, Yuki

“ Amazing Day ”

Yuki was amazing. He was informative without being too school - ish. Showed us the sites and somehow we never got separated in the crowds! We just realized and let him do his thing and it was a fabulous day. We threw him a loop by wanting a particular store we could not find the day before. He took us.It involved train, connections, elevators, a maze of stores but he got us there without hesitation or complaint. It made my son's trip. He did this without compromising the other sites at all. How, I do not know! If you are lucky he will take you to his favourite lunch spot and, believe me it's a treat. Thank you, Yuki!

Yuki:

Dear Carol, Thank you for writing such a nice review of my tour. I think it’s a challenge to find a place where my guest asked. I know Japanese knives are very sharpe but Tower Knife is the place to buy them. Best regards, Yuki
