Mt.Fuji, the symbol of Japan. In this tour, I'd like to suggest visiting around Lake Kawaguchi to see Mt.Fuji because there are many other nice visiting spots. If you would like to climb up to the fifth station of Mt.Fuji, it's possible to do by taxi. Basically, we use public transportation from Tokyo to Mt.Fuji area, then take a private taxi to move in the area. Let's discuss about it together!
Feel free to personalize this offer with YUKIKO.
Mt.Fuji, the symbol of Japan and Its beautiful feature attracts so many people since ancient times. The view of Mt.Fuji can be enjoyed in a clear sunny day, especially from the middle of autumn to winter season. In this Private tour, I'd like to suggest visiting around Lake Kawaguchi to see Mt.Fuji because there are many other nice visiting spots in this area. If you request me to climb up to the fifth station of Mt.Fuji, I'll arrange it. (I'm sorry that I'm not available to climb up to the summit.) Because each spot is not always close each other, we need to discuss about our visiting spots well while considering the weather condition, season and your physical condition. Basically, we use public transportation from Tokyo to Mt.Fuji area, then take a private taxi to move in the area.read more

Yukiko gave me plenty of time and suggestions to enable me to decide where and what I wanted to see in Tokyo prior to my arrival. She arrived early to my hotel for our days tour and was extremely well prepared. We covered all we had planned to do and more. Yukiko has a very good command of english and spoke clearly. She was able to impart a sense of the japanese way of life by talking about some of the meanings for their many rituals and traditions. We were able to compare these to life in my home country which gave the day so much meaning for me. On the practical side I was a capable user of the rail system by the end of the day which set me up for the rest of my sole sightseeing days in Tokyo. I would highly recommend Yukiko as your travel guide, I was very impressed.
We had a great day with Yukiko. She planned a great day for us. We hiked a few kilometres of the old Tokyo to Kyoto path after visiting the old tea room. Saw everything on our list. She is very friendly and easy to work with. Two of our party were nurses in Australia so it was great to learn about the Japanese health system from her.
Thank you for your wonderful review, Jackie!! On our trip in Hakone, we felt beautiful nature of the mountains and history with all our senses while hiking on Hakone old road. I'm glad that our tour was not only just visiting popular places in Hakone but also experiencing its nature. I also enjoyed to talk about health care system about our countries. There are many beautiful nature that I would like to introduce for you. I hope we will meet again. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

I couldn’t ask for better guide. My first time in Tokyo and had a great n valuable time. Use a scooter to move around and she helped all the time. I learned a lot she is very knowledgeable and very respectful. She takes you where you wish to go and creates wonderful itinerary
Thank you so much for choosing me as your guide for your trip, Nicole! I appreciated your heartfelt review and taking your time to write it. I understand that it was a challenging to move around using scooter in Tokyo, especially we used public transportation such as subway and train all the time. However, we could felt people's hospitality and kindness at each station, restaurants and shops. When we used Shibuya station, three station stuff helped us to make a way on the platform and supported to ride on a train, I thought it was very kind. I'm so pleased to hear that you had a great time in the tour. I know that well preparation and consideration are very much important for mobile challenged clients. I definitely would be happy to be your guide in other cities for your next trip to Jap... read more
We booked Yukiko months ahead of our trip and we had lots of contact before meeting her. When we met her, she was even lovelier as our contact had us believe. She gave us so much information about basic day to day Japanese life, Japanese history, where and what to eat and all about how to ride the trains (which advice is gold dust for any traveller). All this was given in excellent English. We visited Temples, markets and palace gardens. Yukiko even phoned a shop for us as we needed to purchase a plug. Yukiko went above and beyond for us, we will always remember and look back on our time with smiles on our faces. Throughout our time together, Yukiko was helpful, funny and so very charming.....a total joy. She even had a little present for us at the end. We can not recommend Yukiko highl... read more
