This tour includes the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji from Miho no Matsubara and Nihondaira, and a georgius and vivid vermillion collared shrine called Kunozan Toshogu where you will feel Japanese artisan sprit and their masterpieces. Visiting the port seamen's inn will give you an image of how Japanese lived in the Meiji Restoration period about 150 years ago.

It is rare to see Mt. Fuji clearly even if the weather is fine. We have more chance to see it in the morning when the air is clear, therefore it is better to arrive at Mino no Matsubara, the first sightseeing spot, possibly early in the morning.
You also see it from Shinkansen bullet train on the way to JR Shizuoka Station.
In order to enjoy the beauty and history of Kunozan Toshogu, it would be better to have some idea about Japanese feudal times and the great achievement of Tokugawa Ieyasu, which I will explain you on the way to Kunozan Toshogu.
There is another "Toshogu" in Nikko which is very famous not only for Japanese but also overseas visitors. Kunozan Toshogu was built in 1617, just one year after Ieyasu died. Nikko Toshogu was built later than that. I will tell you the similarities and differences between two Toshogus from various angles such as architecture, sculpture and historical importance, which may lead you more interest in Japanese architectures and history. read more

Macky took me to multiple places around Mt Fuji I would have never know about. Several great views of Mt Fuji from the various stops. He was very kind and informative. I can't imagine how I could have made the day any better!
Our day with Macky was excellent. In every way, Macky delivered. We had a full itinerary planned, and even with a last minute request to change one of our stops from a bike ride to a winery visit, Macky was able to accommodate. If you are looking for a guide that will find a way to squeeze in all that you want to do within a short time frame without sacrificing the integrity of your trip, Macky is your guide. Prior to our tour, Macky sent us a detailed itinerary down to the hour (while also allowing for flexibility). He really listened to what we wanted to do and what we wanted to accomplish in one day and he made it all happen. Macky is a great tour guide with a wealth of knowledge about Japan who will work with your requests and make sure your day/tour is time extremely well-spent. Thank... read more
