Spending the day with Tomomi was like spending a day with a family friend. From the time I signed up for the tour she was helping me all the way from booking bus tickets from Tokyo to the list of places we can see in a day. She gave various options for planning the tour to see places around Mt.Fuji. Our highlight of the visit was the Ice cave and Aokigahara Forest which we would have never attempted on our own. Thank you Tomomi for your kindness and hospitality and making this Mt. Fuji trip unforgettable. I am going to recommend Tomomi as their guide to all my friends when they visit Mt.Fuji.
Thank you so much for your warm review. It was a great pleasure for me to have showed you and your family around the Mt. Fuji area. I also felt like you were my old friend when I first met you as we had exchanged lots of messages and come to know well each other before meeting. Your husband and daughter were so friendly and kind that I could enjoy chatting with laughter all the way through the tour. I really appreciate your consideration. It was a perfect day to see magnificent view of Mt. Fuji from all places we visited, so Mt. Fuji welcomed your visit! She wasn’t shy luckily. Hope the photos you took during the tour remind you of the good memories you had with me!
Tomomi san was so sweet and an excellent tour guide. She also helped me to plan the tour in the limited time. My husband and stepson were very pleased with her knowledge. I would have her again and again when I come back to Mt. Fuji area. I know my stepson will have her for sure in the near future.
Thank you so much for your great review. It was a perfect day to enjoy the breathtaking views of Mt. Fuji at all places we visited! Mt. Fuji from the Fifth Station was just magnificent. The beautiful conical shape of Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchiko was stunning and delighted our eyes. I’m very happy that you all seemed satisfied with a day-trip around the Mt. Fuji area. Thanks to the friendly atmosphere you all created, I had a lot of fun chatting with you with laugher! I really appreciate your consideration for me. Hope Ryan will come back to the Mt. Fuji area for Mt. Fuji-climbing!
Tomomi is a great guide with passion and good knowledge. She is very helpful, her English is very good. If you really want to experience something special beyond just sightseeing, then Tomomi is a perfect choice. I would highly recommend Tomomi as a guide. Thanks Tomomi, i did have a fantastic trip.
Hi Hung-san! Thank you so much for giving me such a great review. I’m very happy that you all had a lot of fun experiencing what you wanted to do on the foot of Mt. Fuji. Lots of photos of the beautiful autumn leaves you took will remind you of the wonderful memories you had there. Next time you come to the Mt. Fuji area, the spring is definitely recommended! You can take a bunch of photos with cherry blossoms and Mt. Fuji in the background. Thank you again for having me as your guide. The time I shared with you all was so precious and fulfilling that I won’t forget it!
Tomomi-san was a great guide! The tour she gave us was as interesting and informative, and her English was very good. Highly recommended.
Thank you very much for your great review. I’m pleased that you enjoyed exploring the beautiful forest and the stunning view of Mt. Fuji at the lakeside. I had a lot of fun spending some time with you as you guys were so friendly and cheerful. I felt like we were long-time friends. Hope you’ll come back to the Mt. Fuji area to discover something interesting and fascinating other than Mt. Fuji!
Tomomi was terrific from the moment my family and I stepped off the bus! There was an accident in route and so we were late on arrival but Tomomi shuffled things around and we were still able to do all that we wanted. She is excellent as a tour guide! She is extremely knowledgeable and her English is perfect! I wouldn't hesitate to book her again! We have made a lifelong friend! Aloha! Sheila Nagaji-Santos
Thank you for your great review. It will definitely encourage me to make more efforts to become a better guide until next time I see you! You all were so kind and friendly that I really enjoyed guiding you around the Kawaguchiko area. The time we spent together was quite short. However, it was precious and brought me a lot of pleasure. The wonderful photos you sent me will always remind me of the great memories of the trip I had with you. Hope I come to your place sometime very soon in the future. I’m also happy to have made lifelong friends!
