“ Wonderful Day ”

One of my life dreams was to see Mt Fuji and I am so grateful to Chinami to fulfill this dream. Chinami is a terrific guide - very knowledgeable and passionate about Mt Fuji - history, nature and worship. We met at Shimoyoshida station in the morning, visited Churieto, pilgrims accommodations, Oshinohakkai, Kitaguchi hogu Fuji Sengen shrine and had a very delicious lunch. Chinami was very thoughtful to recommend me the best option for travel from Tokyo, gave very clear directions on which train to take and also put me on the highway bus back to Tokyo (as there's no traffic jam on that day). I can't wait to be back and explore the Mt Fuji area with Chinami.


Dear Olga Thank you for writing review.I feel sorry I made some mistakes while guiding you.But you seemed to enjoy the tour.We had a woderful day and saw some new year decolation in Kitaguchi Hongu shrine.You must be tired because we walk a lot.Mt Fuji and the area has dififferent aspects in four seasons.So please come back to Japan and Mt Fuji again near future. By the way, how were strawberries? Chinami

“ Amazing hike through Aokigahara ”

Chinami was a friendly and very knowledgeable guide. She knows alot about the history of the place and carefully explained it to us. She even provides us with nicely drawn illustrations to make it easier for us to understand. We had an extremely enjoyable time hiking through the forest. We would be happy to re-engage her as our guide if we visit Japan again in the future! Thank you Chinami for such a memorable experience! ❤️


Thank you for warmful review! Your comment is so kind. I am so happy that you enjoyed the tour and had good time in Mt Fuji area. Please visit Japan near future so that I can take you to another cave and different places. Good luck on your job and take care
