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.

“ Great Day - Great Guide ”

I wanted to see Mt Fuji, the ice caves and walk through the woods. Prior before the tour, Yuki made us aware that the weather might be very bad and if I want I can change the date for the tour. As I could not change the date, I confirmed that I still want to do the planned tour. Unfortunately the weather was so bad, that we were not able to go up Mt Fuji. Yuki made us aware during our train ride. He was so pro active and creating an instand change in the tour that we got the most out of the day. We saw the caves, a little original village, great original food, and a fantastic walk through the forrest. He was very knowledgeable and it was fun to be with him. I would recommend him as a tour guide and book him anytime again. Thank you Yuki for a great day

Yuki:
Dear Karin, Thank you very much for your great review ! I am glad you enjoyed my tour although we can not see Mt.Fuji. It was my first time to visit the caves and Aokigahara forest. You helped me to expand my tour. Please give my best regards to your husband. Yuki

“ BIRTHDAY TRIP @ HAKONE ”

He is smart and patient. He was super helpful especially when we needed to retrieve our bags left at the Shinkansen train. He is honest. What should I expect on our trip was been discussed in our emails. Specifically, the value of our Hakone trip with Yuki-san is cheaper than other tourist guide.

(57) Reviews

Hakone is very popular for one day trip from Tokyo. There are nice parks and museums with scenic view. We will take a mountain railway, a rope way and cruise Lake Ashi by the Pirate ship. Hakone is famous for hot public baths, you can try one if you want. If you are lucky, you can enjoy the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji.
