We had a wonderful day with Takashi as our guide. We visited Arakura Sengen Park and Shrine, 4th Station, Wind and Ice Caves, Mt Fuji Panoramic Ropeway and Oishi Park. We were very lucky and got to see Mt. Fuji all day. Takashi was very knowledgeable about all sites and the

Dear David and Kim Thank you very much for your kind comments. It was our pleasure to guide the lovely honeymoon couple from Australia around the fourth station of Mt. Fuji as well as Lake Shoji and Lake Kawaguchi. Toshi the driver and I are very happy to know that you enjoyed our tour, especially thinking that you came to visit Japan during the challenging period of the coronavirus crisis. The weather was fantastic. You were extremely lucky as you saw the full view of Mt. Fuji all day from different sites in the region such as Arakura-Sengen Park, the fourth station of Mt. Fuji, Lake Shoji and Lake Kawaguchi. Not many people are as lucky as you. This is because Mt. Fuji is often hiding behind low hanging cloud. I think that it was a gift for you from the goddess of Mt. Fuji, Princess Sakuya, as you are such a wonderful couple. I am sure that you remember the story that the 398 stone steps in the Arakura- Sengen park was made on purpose in association with the name of Princess Sakuya. I wish you all the best for your future. Best regards, Takashi

Dear Kylie, Thank you so much for your wonderful reviews. The driver, Toshi and I were very happy to know that all the members of your party fully enjoyed the tour in the Mt. Fuji area. We were blessed with the nice weather in the morning, especially. You could get a stunning view of snow-covered Mt. Fuji and a five-storied pagoda at "Chureito" Pagoda site. After an aerial travel of the cable car, you could have a panoramic view of Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchiko. Before boarding the cable car, we had to wait for a long queue. Still, thanks for your patience and understanding, we finally got on the cable car. So you deserved that fantastic view. In the latter part of the tour, we explored a lava tree mold which was formed by the volcanic activities of Mt. Fuji. Hopefully, you felt reborn by going through the spiritual lava tunnel. Unfortunately, we were not able to see a Diamond Fuji at Lake Yamanakako due to the weather condition. Instead, we visited the local "sake" brewery and had a chance to talk with the 21st generation owner in person. Thanks to your cooperation, understanding and flexibility made our tour go smoothly. I appreciated that very much. All the members of your two families were just beautiful and cheerful. I enjoyed listening to jokes from your children and gentlemen! Well, I learned a lot from you and it was a great pleasure to meet you and guide you all. Thank you very much for using us. All the best wishes for you and the rest of your party. Yuko

Dear Melanie Thank you very much for your kind comments on our tour. Both Tak and I were very happy to hear that we made contributions for your good time in Japan. It was our pleasure to work for such a lovely family as yours. We very much enjoyed nice conversation with all of you throughout the tour. It was awesome that your children, wearing kimono and samurai costumes, got through cultural experience of pounding mochi(steamed rice)as a new year event in Healing Village Nenba. As tradition is dying in Japan the same as elsewhere in the world, we currently have many Japanese children who have never pounded mochi. It has become a truly memorable new year day for us, too. Thank you very much! All the best wishes to you and your family, Takashi

I needed a stress-free day trip for my family (my parents, brother, husband and 4-year-old son) to Mt. Fuji from Tokyo. As this would be my 2nd time, I knew using the public transport will not help us with that. I stumbled upon this tour in TripAdvisor, and I'm glad I did! Taiji

Dear Joan Thank you very much for your kind comments. It was our pleasure to guide such a nice family as yours to the fifth station of Mt. Fuji and Lake Kawaguchi. The weather was fantastic. You were extremely lucky as you saw a full view of Mt. Fuji all day from different angles in the region. Not many people are as lucky as you. This is because Mt. Fuji is often hiding behind low hanging cloud. As the Chureito Pagoda is located at 398 stone steps from the bottom of Arakurayama Sengen Park, I was initially thinking that it was too challenging for your parents to walk up there. However, they made it. It was worthy as all of you saw a spectacular view of a five-storied pagoda and Mt. Fuji together, whose pictures are often used for cover pages of guidebooks on Japan. In the fifth station of Mt. Fuji, you got a magnificent view of the top of Mt. Fuji as well as a great view of Japan`s Southern Alps. In Oishi Park, you got a panoramic view of Lake Kawaguchi and Mt. Fuji all at once. We shared such a great day! We were very happy in our contribution to your having a stress-free day trip in the region for your family as you had expected. As you mentioned in your comments, it is not easy to move from one site to another in the region with public transport. Thank you very much for using us! Please give our best regards to the rest of the family. Best wishes, Takashi
