What to Expect

One day tour to Lake Kawaguchi to see Mt. Fuji.
We will use express trains from Tokyo to save your time and avoid traffic jam in a highway.
Then take a tour taxi to Oshino hakkai and Arakurayama park to view Mt.Fuji.
We will cruise the lake and climb Mt.Kachikachi by a ropeway.

Highlights

  • Oshino hakkai ( many ponds with clear water from Mt.Fuji)
  • Arakurayama park ( The scene of Mt.Fuji with its 5 story pagoda is very unique and well known )
  • Lake Kawaguchi crusing
  • Mt. Kachikachi ropeway to view Mt.Fuji
  • Cycling around the lake with a rental bicycle (Optional 1500JPY)
  • Kubota icchiku museum of Kimono (Optional 1300 JPY)

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.

I can guide you around Kyoto if you pay my round transportation fee to Kyoto from Tokyo (approx.28,000 JPY in total) in addition to the usual guide fee, transportation and meals during the tour.

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 that of music boxes instead of Arakurayama park and Mt.KachiKachi.
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.

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 express train for Lake Kawaguchi departing from Shinjuku station at 8:30.
Please find your hotels near the station.

Why we take trains instead of a highway bus?

Highways are sometimes very crowded and there is little flexibility in time and places.
Trains are more expensive but you will save your time which is more important for travelers, isn't it?
There are many trains for return trip which give you more flexibility in time.

Why we use a tour taxi for some places ?

It takes time to visit Oshino hakkai and 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.

“ 3 Days with Yuki ”

We spent 3 days with Yuki in Tokyo. We were lucky to see Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchi when the clouds lifted. What a spectacular sight! We visited the East Garden of the Imperial Palace, and Yuki was very informative about Japanese history as we walked the area. We also visited the Samurai Museum, Meiji Shrine, and Sengakuji Temple. The Tsukiji sushi lunch was the best! During the planning process for these 3 days, Yuki was very helpful, flexible, and accommodating. He responded to my questions promptly and even went out of his way to find a specialty nori for us. Thank you, Yuki, for showing us Tokyo and Lake Kawaguchi.

“ Beyond expectations ”

Thank you Yuki san for making our Mt Fuji trip so memorable. As a first time visitor of Tokyo, Yuki took care of everything and all we had to do was show up at the lobby. Learning what we wanted to do and see, Yuki was very accommodating and even suggested other things we could do whilst in Tokyo, getting the details for us. Without these tips we could have missed more! Thank you Yuki, I'll look you up again when I visit Tokyo next time!
