What to Expect

・It takes 50 to 60 minutes from Shimizu Port by car to reach the main area of the tour. Since we get very close to Mt. Fuji, we can see it prominently in front of us if the weather is fine. (But please do not hold high expectations for viewing Mt. Fuji because we can not see it well when the weather is bad.)
・At Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha, the guide will tell you how this beautiful World Heritage shrine has been closely related to Mt. Fuji since ancient times.
・Shiraito Falls is also one of the highlights of this area. Mt. Fuji's ground water gushes out from the rock layers, which is a wonderful sight to see.
・If you are interested in sake (Japanese rice wine), I will try to book a free brewery tour at Takasago Sake Brewery.
・Lake Tanuki is also optional. If the weather is fine, you might have a chance to see the famous "postcard-like view" of Mt. Fuji and its reflection on the lake.


What‘s included

Guide fee, tour guide's transportation fees

What‘s not included

・Rental car fee. (This is only for a party of 5 or more people excluding the tour guide. The price varies according to the conditions, but the average price is about 15,000 yen.)
・Food or drink the guests might buy on the way

Important

1. If your party is made up of 5 people or more, I need to use a large-sized rental car as a main method of transportation. The price of a rental car varies according to the conditions, such as the type of car and the rental car company. When the particular car we will use is decided, I will tell you the price.
2. This is a 5-hour tour, but we need to drive for almost an hour to reach the main area of the tour, and the roads in Fuji City are likely to be congested (especially in the evenings). That is why sometimes it may be a little difficult for me to adjust the tour time and finish the tour exactly in 5 hours. So please allow for a little extra time due to the traffic conditions, in which case I will not charge you any extra fees. If you definitely need to keep the tour time to 5 hours, please mention that to me beforehand so I can adjust the tour accordingly.
3. You need to walk down a considerable number of stone steps to reach the basin of the Shiraito Falls, and there are no elevators or paths. So please tell me beforehand if that's going to be a problem.

“ A pleasant, flexible tour ”

This is a new tour Koji has produced, focussed especially on cruise ship passengers on shore excursions from Shimizu. Its main advantage is its flexibility, since the fickle weather makes planning rigidly in advance somewhat risky. Within reason, Koji will tweak the tour to fit the weather. Also, he takes you with his car to the sites, thus beating the big groups to what are essentially small sites, thus enhancing their charm. Koji himself is very pleasant and personable. Notwithstanding the horrible weather we had, we enjoyed our morning with Koji a lot.

Koji:
Dear Alisa, Thank you very much for your kind words about my tour. I also had a lot of fun spending time with you and your husband. You talked to me a lot about your home country, and it was very interesting to me to know about those cultural differences. I hope that you will revisit Japan in the future with your children who you said are interested in Japan, and that you will see a magnificent view of Mt. Fuji under a clear blue sky next time!
