Kiyosumi garden is the best traditional Japanese garden in Tokyo. The garden was first made in 1880 by Yataro Iwasaki who was the founder of Mitsubish Zaibatsu. It is a strolling type garden with a pond and three islands in harmony with pine trees and lawns. There are many large stones displayed all aound the garden which were collected from all over Japan. You can walk very close to the water as a parts of the pavements are made of large stones and placed in the water. Many flowers bloom in spring including Azalea and Iris. The garden is not so popular, a kind of secret spots for those taking pictures of the scenery without crowds.

I wanted to see Mt Fuji, the ice caves and walk through the woods. Prior before the tour, Yuki made us aware that the weather might be very bad and if I want I can change the date for the tour. As I could not change the date, I confirmed that I still want to do the planned tour. Unfortunately the weather was so bad, that we were not able to go up Mt Fuji. Yuki made us aware during our train ride. He was so pro active and creating an instand change in the tour that we got the most out of the day. We saw the caves, a little original village, great original food, and a fantastic walk through the forrest. He was very knowledgeable and it was fun to be with him. I would recommend him as a tour guide and book him anytime again. Thank you Yuki for a great day
Yuki is very nice and very passionate about his work. He answered all our questions.
He is smart and patient. He was super helpful especially when we needed to retrieve our bags left at the Shinkansen train. He is honest. What should I expect on our trip was been discussed in our emails. Specifically, the value of our Hakone trip with Yuki-san is cheaper than other tourist guide.
Yuki led a very good tour and provide many interesting points about the culture as we visited the temple, garden, learned the train system, and saw other sights. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide.
Yuki was very accommodating to the needs of my family, he adjusted our itinerary as we went along. Yuki was also very knowledgeable and his English was very good.
Hakone is very popular for one day trip from Tokyo. There are nice parks and museums with scenic view. We will take a mountain railway, a rope way and cruise Lake Ashi by the Pirate ship. Hakone is famous for hot public baths, you can try one if you want. If you are lucky, you can enjoy the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji.
