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.

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

“ Wonderful Day in Tokyo ! ”

I came to Japan as a solo female traveler and figured it would be a good investment to tour the Tokyo area with a local, and I do not regret doing it with Yuki one bit. I spent about half a day with him and we went to the Tsukiji Fish Market, Akihabara, Meji Shrine, Asakusa and the Senso-Ji Temple. He was extremely accommodating (met me at my hotel and traveled with me back) and knowledgeable on the history and facts of each place we visited. The best part about being with Yuki was that he took me to a great local sushi restaurant and he also brought me around to the the best street food places I have ever had! I would highly recommend doing a tour with him as I had a wonderful time.

“ Excellent Way To Visit Around ”

This was our first time using a private tour guide and we're very happy to say all well great on our visit to Kamakura. Yuki was prompt at arriving at our hotel, taking us to the subway and around the various areas in Kamakura. The pace was great and to our liking. We even discovered that Yuki had previously lived in Chicago (where we're from) in the past. I would recommend Yuki to all.

“ Great custom day trip to Hakone ”

Yuki did a great job with our family -- two parents and 4 kids ages 16 through 6. Yuki picked us up at our hotel in Tokyo, helped us navigate the Shinkansen and bus to Hakone, and guided us around the sites of Hakone, and then got us to our ryokan where we were staying that night. He called the ryokan when we first arrived and arranged to have them pick up our bags, and again at the end of the day of siteseeing to pick us up. Everything worked perfectly. Yuki is a calm and expert guide, and was patient with us and all the kids explaining the highlights and allowing us to dictate the pace of the day. He took us on the typical circle route around the Hakone area but in a reverse order to minimize crowds and match our schedule better. It was a great day. Thank you!

“ Amazing day with Yuki! ”

Me and my friend booked Yuki for a day where I asked him to choose the places to go, it was pouring down rain which he took into consideration and was super flexible and helpful with anything we needed. He speaks excellent english and gave us small presentations on an ipad when visiting sites. For a true authentic experience make sure to book our friend Yuki :)
