“ a tour guide you can trust for a fabulous experience ”

Chinami Mam has been a pleasure to deal with right from day 1. we entrusted her with a group of ours and she handled our query with utmost patience. I was worried that due to so many changes and small requests made to her but she was always cheerful and accommodating. I strongly recommend her and you may blindly trust her suggestions.


Dear Varun I am so happy you wrote a good review.We had a lot of photoes at 5th station of Mt Fuji and went the resrurant that they wanted. I hope you are satisfied the tour with me.Thank you again. Chinami

“ Chinami will make sure you have a perfect day! ”

Chinami was an outstanding guide and I could not recommend her more highly! She knows the Fuji and Yamanashi area incredibly well - particularly the nature, food and wineries which were of interest to us. She was very helpful before our tour, helping us plan what to do - she made excellent recommendations but was also very aware and receptive to what we wanted to do. Her English is very good and she is very kind and fun. We really enjoyed our time with her and hope to visit again so we can see more of the area with her - there is so much to do!!! Thanks Chinami!!!


Dear Jen Thank you for your review! I am so happy that you enjoyed the tour. We saw beasutiful Mt Fuji all day long, which was one of the best part. Also, you had good wine and sake, didn't you? All of you were interested in many thing, so I had wonderful time with you as well. As I said, there are so many things to see and to do depending on seasons. I really hope that you would come to Yamanashi in the future! Thank you very much again Chinami

She was very knowledgeable and even had drawing she drew herself fantastic. I will be booking she again the next time I’m in japan and need a guide to visit. Thank you so much!

I would like to show you around Mt Fuji area again since there are many places to see! Untill then I try to blush up my English as I said. Hope to see you in the near future!

“ Behold - Mt Fuji! ”

After spending 5 days in Tokyo, it was time for me to leave the city and visit Mt. Fuji and Aokigahara, the sea of trees. It was so nice to get out in nature. Chinami was a great guide. I still can't believe we managed to visit so many beautiful places in such a short time. She did a great job of scheduling everything which is no small feat with the different train and bus schedules to keep track of. We got some great hiking in including seeing some amazing shrines, beautiful caves, and of course the spectacular views of Mt Fuji along the way. Chinami was so knowledgeable about the history of the land and the people and I learned so much while having so much fun. Thank you!!! I can't wait to visit again. :)


Thak you very much, Bill! I feel sorry that I sometimes made you in rush.However, I am so happy that you seem to enjoy going around Mt Fuji area. We did have perfect weather, didn't we? I hope you will come to climb Mt Fuji in summer next time!
