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 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.

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.

Is the price per person or per group?

“ Day trip to Kamakura from Tokyo ”

Four of us had a fantastic day touring the sights of Kamakura. Yuki met us at our hotel and that helped streamline our day so we didn’t have to figure out navigating through the train stations. Yuki was very informative in regards to the history at the sights we visited. I would highly recommend Yuki as a tour guide as our day was fun and full of Japanese history. Excellent day tour with Yuki from Tokyo to Kamakura.

Very Good
