Important

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.

“ 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!

Yuki:
DEar Dalilah, Thank you very much for your quick and great review. The view of Mt.Fuji was just mangificent as we have switched the date of our tour. It was my first time to use a tour taxi and it made our tour very efficient. This tour helps me to improve my tour, too. Please come to Japan in other season.

“ Great Tour of Tokyo's Highlights ”

Mr. Yuki did a great job customizing a tour for us. A week prior to our trip, we decided on three spots together based on our interests. Mr. Yuki replied to his emails almost immediately, which made this process so much easier. At the last minute, we had to change our meeting location but Mr. Yuki was very understanding. He lent us subway cards for the day which made traveling between sites so much easier. We weren't familiar with Japanese traditions at all. He did a great job explaining Japan's history, customs and traditions. He was very knowledgeable. He patiently answered all of the questions we had about Japan. This was an all day tour and we had a lot of questions! Also, we wanted to have lunch specifically at the Palace Hotel and he was very accommodating about that too. At the end of the tour, I felt that we learned more about Tokyo than we could have ever figured out ourselves by going to the sites with just a travel book. We definitely recommend Mr. Yuki. We only had one day to spend in Tokyo, but he made sure that day was spent productively.

Yuki:
Dear Zeynep, Thank you so much for writing such a specific review. It was my pleasure answering guestions about Japan. I am very glad that you learned something through my tour. There are too many places to visit on a day, please come again during other seasons. Please give my best regards to your family.

“ Fun in Japan ”

We did two tours with Yuki and he was great for both. Yuki was very patient and accommodating as we shopped - our favorite thing to do. He customized our tours according to our preferences and even took us to places not included on his regular tour. We enjoyed his company so much that by the second day, Yuki felt like part of our family. Thanks, Yuki. Hope you enjoyed the chocolate macadamia nut treats from Hawaii!

Yuki:
Thank you for your review, Laurie. I was very happy to see your family enjoy shopping at Kuratsukuri street in Kawagoe and at Komachi strret in Kamakura. Sorry for the long wait for eel lunch and for the hot Indian curry for your mother. Please give my best regards to your family.

“ First Day in Tokyo ”

We hired Yuki to meet us at Haneda Airport and help us navigate the public transit system to our AirBnB. He helped us get settled, purchase public transit cards, and reviewed our itinerary so that we would know how to get around for the remainder of our trip. He also helped us make reservations and picked up tickets for us for later in our trip. He also took us to a few tourist locations. Meeting with Yuki on our first day made us feel comfortable and settled in for the rest of the trip.

Yuki:
Dear Judy, Thank you for your review. It was my first time to pickup at Haneda and to visit Tsukiji fishmarket in the morning. I was very happy when your family enjoyed shopping and tried many Japanese food there. Since you had asked me many places you wanted visit, I had not decided places for the afternoon. After eating Ramen, I took you to the observatory in Shinjuku and your sister liked the toy park very much and you found a free market near by. It was a great time for me, too. Best regards, Yuki.
