Although yasuko was a great guide we spent far much time travelling and very little time at the 2 sights we visited
Thank you for writing a review. It was really beautiful weather, so you could see a view of Mt. Fuji from these sites we visited. I hope you would enjoy the view and waterfalls, shrine and a bullet train. I'm afraid too much bus and train were tired of you.
Yasuko was a great guide, understood what we wanted to see and made sure we did everything on the list. She was very informative about everything we saw and was a lot of fun to be with, highly recommend Yasuko as a guide
William-san, thank you so much for writing a good review. I'm so happy to hear that you all enjoyed my tour. It was a quite lucky day you could see a view of Mt. Fuji and the autumn festival of the shrine as well. Your all members are really nice persons, that's why I really had a good time guiding you, also our driver was so nice person, too. Enjoy cruising in Japan after Shimizu. Regards Yasuko
Lovely personality, great flexibility with the group and constant contact with everyone. Very good English, easy to understand. Very good itinerary, and she picked a great lunch place. Mt. Fuji Center and the special shrine we visited were fascinating. Would definitely use her again!!
Thank you Bob for a good review. I'm so happy to hear that you all enjoyed with me for visiting Mt. Fuji area. Only we could see a view of Mt. Fuji at the pier and on the local train. I also really had a good time with you all, so friendly persons. See you sometime in Japan.
I enjoyed two full-day tours with Yasuko visiting beautiful places in the vicinity of Mount Fuji. Yasuko was agreeable company and her well planned itinerary was responsive to the requirements I had requested as well as including surprises such as Mishima springs and vegetarian lunch (not so easy to find in Japan) at a small boutique restaurant.
Mark-san Thanks for writing a review. I'm so happy to be enjoyed these two-days tours around Mt.Fuji. Especially vegetarian lunch cafe named bain-marie in Mishima, because the chef, who worried about the dishes. So I will let him know about this. You will be back in Japan when you can see the view of Mt. Fuji. Thank you.
