As a day trip from Tokyo to view Mount Fuji, I strongly recommend taking my Mt. Fuji's View from Lake Kawaguchiko Up-to-You Tour instead.

This tour is suitable for JR PASS holders. We will start from Tokyo or from your hotel in Hakone area and visit the highlights near Lake Ashi. We will finish our tour at your hotel in the Hakone area/at the entrance of Hakone Open Air Museum/at the Shinkansen platform of Odawara/ other places in Hakone.

Great day out

Great day out visiting Mount Fuji. Yoko was very helpful with the booking and anticipating all needs prior to the tour. On the day, Yoko met us at the lobby of our hotel and off we went to see Mt Fuji! Great day with the weather on our side. Yoko was very knowledgable, thank you for sharing your experience with us! I was traveling with my 7 year old son, we both really enjoy the day out and everything went smoothly. If you want a personalised tour, go for it, it makes a huge difference with no hassle, great learning experience, worth everything. Yoko is very flexible. Merci beaucoup Yoko!

Yoko T.

Ne de rien!! Thank you so much for such a great review, Sophie. The pleasure was mine that I could share the great view of Mount Fuji from Lake Kawaguchiko. I enjoyed the conversation with you a lot about France, UK and yourself even the temperature difference seemed to be quite tough for Rye. I hope you and Rye remember how to do the origami of Kabuto, the samurai helmet. I will practice the frog based on the site you told me. I hope you're enjoying Kyoto and please enjoy the rest of your stay. Merci beaucoup et à bientôt!!

Fabulous tour with Yoko!

Yoko was an excellent tour guide. She devised a tour with our interests as well as “must sees” as a newbie to Japan. Yoko is extremely organized and knowledgeable. Our time with her was well spent. We learned a lot and would definitely recommend Yoko for an enjoyable tour of Tokyo.

Yoko T.

Thank you for a wonderful review. I had a great day with both of you. When I see works of Yayoi Kusama, I will remember you and the wonderful conversations we had that day. Nikko is also an amazing place to visit for an art fan like you, so please come again. Thank you again!!

Yoko T.

Thank you so much for your review, Mr. McGuire. It was a great pleasure for me to guide you, Kelly, Kirsten and Jordan, Tokyo, Nikko and Lake Kawaguchiko. All of you were so intelligent, beautiful and so sweet, so I had a great time during the three days. I'll be looking forward to seeing you coming back with them or your other grandchildren. Please take care till then. Thank you again for the wonderful days!!

Japan Overview

We had a good day with Yoko exploring all aspects of our local surroundings as per an itinerary we had designed. The day was cold and eventually wet, but we continued through our itinerary despite the elements. It was a long day but we managed to see everything that we had set out to see and explore. Yoko was very knowledgeable and was able to provide the context details that made the journey more interesting.

Yoko T.

Thank you very much for your review. It was too bad it started to rain but we dropped by to get umbrellas even though some of you didn't like to use them. I hope you could find something interesting at Sekaido and enjoyed your stay in Japan. Sakura (Cherry blossoms) are very beautiful in Spring, so please come to see them in the future. Please take care!!

Tokyo Up-to-You Tour

Tokyo
8 hours

I recommend ending up the day with the night view of the Rainbow Bridge and the Tokyo Bay, the most beautiful night view in Tokyo I would like you to see. We will visit the spots you would like to in Tokyo.I will make an itinerary based on your choices and requests. (The popular highlights will be Meiji Jingu Shrine, East Gardens and Asakusa with Nakamise Souvenir Shopping Streets.) Sightseeing spots in Tokyo is widely spread, so I guess we can only visit three or four spots a day.

Mt. Fuji's View from Lake Kawaguchiko Up-to-You Tour

Mt. Fuji isn't always visible, especially when it's hazy. Please choose the spots in the highlights you would like to visit around Kawaguchiko/ Mt. Fuji, based on your interest/preferences, your physical condition and the weather. It depends on which ones you choose, but I'll do my best to arrange it the way you can visit more than three of them.
