When people hear "aokigahara" most of them think of a spooky, dangerous place. Tomomiさん showed me the beauty of the forest, it's unique nature. In advanced we talked about what I was interested in and she modified the trip she normally does, so it fitted right into what I wanted to do/see. Tomomiさん explained everything from interest and could answer the questions I had sovereign. It was very interesting listening to her and to learn about the area. I had a lot of fun and I hope I can have a tour with Tomomiさん when I come back to Japan with my family. Thank you very much for the awesome time, Tomomi さん!
Thank you so much for your great review, Sarahさん！It was a great pleasure for me to show you around the Aokigahara area and meet your satisfaction. I really had a wonderful time sharing what we are interested in during the tour. Your deep insight into nature and all living things was quite impressive. The four-hour hike just went so fast because I had so much fun with you. Hope you’ll come back to Japan with your family and enjoy rich nature on the foot of Mt. Fuji. Sarahさん, your Japanese was excellent. Please keep it up!
The whole experience with Tomomi san is just top notch, from very quick response time to insanely detailed suggestions. She speaks fluent English, extyremely friendly and very considerate. My girl friend and myself had a wonderful time, all thanks to Tomomi san. We went to a very nice trail, had some very good local food and she try her best to accommodate all our requests, to the point it was past the hiring time and she even help us to arrange transportation on days we didn’t hire her. We recommend her with zero hesitation, she will make sure you have a wonderful time around Mount Fuji! Thanks again, Tomomi san!
Thank you so much again for having me as your guide! It is a great joy for me to have taken you to the Ochudo trail since that area is definitely worth visiting though it isn’t well-known! You guys were very friendly and considerate to me throughout the tour, so that hearty atmosphere allowed me to guide you around the Mt. Fuji area with relax. The great success in your private tour was actually attributed to you! I really appreciated it.
Tomomi was a great guide with tons of knowledge about the forest and the caves. She adjusted the tour for our needs perfectly. Her English was great and was a very pleasant guide. She is highly recommended.
A three-hour hike through the forest went by so quickly since the time I shared with you guys was enjoyable and fulfilling. I was very happy to see you having fun with what you discovered in the forest such as a tiny beetle, beautiful mosses and leftovers of squirrels. Mt. Fuji has the different faces though the seasons, so she welcomes your visit any time! Thank you very much again for joining the tour, Timothy and Nova!!
Our trip through Aokigahara was fantastic! We asked her a lot of questions and Tomomi answered all of them. We saw amazing nature and the Saiko Bat cave. She was very friendly and talking to her felt natural and nice. I would highly recommend a tour with her!
Thank you again for joining the tour! I’m really happy to have shown you and your friends from Germany around the Aokigahara forest. You guys asked me many questions about the various things about Japan as well as Aokigahara and Mt. Fuji. I felt rewarding as a guide because I could help you have the deeper understanding of different aspects of Japan during the tour. Hope you’ll come back here again in the different seasons. There are lots of things around the foot of Mt. Fuji that will attract you!
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. ... read more
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! Plea... read more
