Susan-san. Thank you for your kind comment. After typhoon, Hakone had big damage. Railway is now closed by the land slide and will take a few months to be recovered. You are the last visitors before that. Enjoy the rest of your journey. -Kochi
What a wonderful day we had seeing the sights around Hakone. Lots of messages to and from with Junichiro to ensure we were doing what we wanted to do, and working out what was best in the time we had. Our day included a tea ceremony and private onsen. Stunning part of the world with a a friendly and knowledgeable guide who went out of his way to give us a superb day. Thank you

Thank you for your appraisal and kind message. Enjoy the rest of you and Vimal’s tour in Japan.
The day was wonderfully planned. We got to see what was planned ahead. Kochi is a wonderful guide! We had enough time to do all the itinerary for the day with no rush. He’s friendly and warm. We will definitely recommend him to anyone who wish to have a private guide. Warmest greetings from Singapore, Lucy n Joshua
