I am Tomomi Yuyama, a nationally certified English-speaking tour guide.
I was born and raised on the foot of Mt. Fuji which embraces great nature and wildlife on its base.
As the local guide familiar with the historic sites related to Mt. Fuji and its natural beauty, I can make your trip more fascinating and enjoyable. It is a great joy for me to help you have amazing experiences and unforgettable memories.
As the certified nature guide, I can arrange trekking tours in Aokigahara forest, "Sea of Trees" and cutomize tours according to your interests.
I love to interact with people from the different cultural backgrounds as the cultural exchanges with them enrich my life. Through various activities in my tours, I would like you to feel closer to Japan and its people!

My family and I had a day and half in Kawaguchiko. To maximize the experience, we retained the service of Ms. Tomomi as our guide for a one-day tour. It was a very rewarding experience. Ms. Tomomi was very responsive in the pre-trip correspondences. After knowing the type of activities we were interested in, she put together a proposed plan for the day trip. We toured around Kawaguchiko and Saiko areas -- visited Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine, checked out Bat Cave, walked through Aokigahara forest, and visited Saiko Iyashi no sato Nemba. Ms. Tomomi was punctual and knowledgeable with very good English. She's engaging and considerate when she noticed that we might want to spend more time in a particular area so that she could make quick adjustments to the plan. All said, I am very happy that I came across this site and found Ms. Tomomi to be our guide. It was a really fun day for myself, my sister, and my mom! I would highly recommend anyone planning to visit Mt. Fuji area to retain the service of Ms. Tomomi. She's fantastic!
Hi Vickie, Thank you very much for giving me such a great review. It was a great pleasure that I could show you and your family (Bridie and Tammy) around the places you were really interested in. Thanks to your kindness and patience, the tour proceed smoothly. I was happy that your first choice of a place to visit was “Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Jinja Shrine” because I would really like tourists to visit historical spots spreading on the food of Mt. Fuji other than its natural beauty. I felt really close to you all as you were very friendly and cheerful. The pleasant time I spent with you passed by so quickly that I wished I could have been with you guys more. Thank you very much again for joining the tour. Hope you’ll come back again to the Mt. Fuji area at the different seasons! Please say hi to Birdie and Tammy. Best regards, Tomomi
