“ Awesome Mt. Fuji Tour ”

Akira (aka Arti) is a great guide. Very knowledgable of the area, kept on schedule, and provided us all of the points in the itinerary. He had fun stories and was great with conversation. He even provided some pointers for shopping for specific souvenir items. Although it is an extra few hundred dollars, the private taxi is worth his recommendation for the Mt. Fuji area - we wouldn't have been able to see everything without it.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my efforts to make my tours even better for the future.

“ Day trip to Mt Fuji ”

What an amazing day and what and amazing Tour Guide. We met Akira on the train and he had arranged a private driver and car as per our request. Akira made the day so run smoothly and made the day very interesting. He was happy to answer all our questions and more than happy to make changes during the day as the weather was spectacular. We were a group of 4 adults who enjoy seeing the amazing mountains. Our tour meant that we did not see many other tours despite it being peak season which just made the day all the more special.

Akira.K:

Thank you very much for your favorable comments. I will make my future tours even better.

“ Great Tour with a Local ”

Arti provided much in depth information for first timers taking the train from Tokyo which made it easy for us to purchase the right tickets and meet him at the meeting point. During the tour, he shared history and was quick to answer any questions we had. Touring with a local was an excellent experience, so different from the standard group tours and Arti brought us to shop from the source rather than souvenir shops. We totally enjoyed the tour with Arti and highly recommend him!

Akira.K:

Thank you Dixie san and Gen san for your favorable commets. I also enjoyed our tour and sharing the thoughts with you two. I will make my maximum efforts to make my tour even better.
