I can guide you in Shizuoka and Nagano if you pay for my transportation fee (and accommodation depending on time a tour starts and where).
If you would like to me pick up in Tokyo, I have to ask you pick up fee as well.
However,when we meet at a station,I won't charge any extra fee.

Guests have to come to a bus stop by themselves.
I will tell how to get to there, even from Tokyo.
However, if you worry about getting to,I will meet at Kawaguchiko station, which is the terminal of train and highway bus.

“ Fantastic guide with excellent knowledge ”

Chinami is a very experienced and candid guide who never fails to make us feel engaged and welcome, right to the extend that we felt a close friendship instead of a guide-customer relationship. Right from before the start of the trip, she provided much needed assistance with our plans regarding Mt Fuji and the region, as well as knowledge and guide for our itinerary. She went beyond the call of duty to provide timely updates periodically so that we are able to plan our itinerary better, right up to the day when we travel. On the day for the guided tour, she texted and assisted us alot, before, during and after the guide, even to the extend to ensure that we catch our bus and train on time back to Tokyo. During the tour, she provided detailed explanations and clearly showed high knowledge o... read more

“ Tour through the Sea of Trees and bat cave ”

Chinami was so helpful organising a trip through the forest and bat cave. She was very friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable before we even arrived in Japan, easily contactable through emails and worked with us to arrange a personalised tour. We would recommend Chinami to anyone looking to tour around the Mt Fuji area, it was a very fun day and amazing to see such a beautiful area with an experienced guide. Paris (from Australia)


Dear Paris Thank you very much for the good review. I am so glad to know that you had good time in Aokigahara Forest.We visited different types of caves and see Mt Fuji from the lake side.I hope you come to Mt Fuji area to spend more time with your baby next time. There are many things to see and to do this area.Take care and enjoy yourself in Osaka as well. Chinami

“ Wonderful day in Yamanashi with a great tour guide ”

We hired Chinami for one day in Tokyo and one day in Yamanashi. Chinami was very good at communication from the time we booked until the very end of our tour. For Tokyo: She gave great suggeation on Teamlab Planet. We all loved it. she took our family to a very nice owl cafe where we felt like we had a private visit. We wanted to do a little celebration for our daughter's birthday at the cafe. Though it was not easy to do, she managed to make that happen. For Yamanshi: She organized a private bus for our group of 17 people. She took us to a beautiful village where we put on kinomo and walk around taking pictures for only 1000Yen. It was also here that we had the best ramen and udon for just about 5000 yen. She knows Yamanashi area very well and arranged the itenarary in such... read more


Thank for the review. I am glad to know that all of you seem to enjoy the tour in Tokyo and Mt Fuji. We have exchanged massages 185 times! I hope you will come back to Chureito where we couldn't make it since we didn't have time in the future. Chinami

“ Amazing Tour of Aokigahara Forest and Saiko Bat Cave ”

Chinami is an A+++ Tour Guide. Starting from the booking process all the way until the end of our tour, she was extremely helpful, kind and thoughtful in every way you'd hope a guide would be. Chinami is incredibly knowledgeable in so many subject matters and we learned so much from her in one day. Aokigahara is incredibly beautiful, but unfortunately we could only be there for one day. Wish we had more time in the area. I look forward to coming back one day to explore more with Chinami as our guide!


Dear Jacqueline Thank you for kind comment. I wanted you to see another area in Aikigahara and Lake saiko area, but we could see beautiful cherry blossom, too.Well I hope you come back to Japan again different season! I will guide you in Tokyo next time for Gibri museum! Chinami
