Easy day trip from Tokyo and Yokohama area. If love hiking, it is must-try tour. The name "Takatori-yama" means "Hawk caught mountain" and dates to the Edo period (17th to 19th centuries). Everybody from kids to adults can enjoy fresh air and breath-taking views.

Almost all of the route is easy but there is one spot where need to should climb up while holding onto a chain. You can check the picture. If you'd like to have lunch outside, please bring it with you. Lunch is not included.
Note that we may need to cancel this tour if the weather is bad.
Yes, I can but an additional fee may apply.
For example, it costs about 1,000JPY from Tokyo station to Zushi station by JR. This is one way. If you have "Japan Rail Pass for Tokyo wide", it can be used.
Don't worry. There are convenience stores around stations. You can buy sandwiches, Onigiri (rice balls) and bento boxes. We can buy them together when we meet.
Eiichi was very friendly and came well prepared for everything I had communicated to him that I wanted to see and do. His English is excellent and I never felt embarrassed to ask him to repeat or to repeat my questions. I HIGHLY recommend Eiichi to anyone, especially those English speakers, that want a private guide and are interested in Japanese culture.
Scott, thank you for your review. I really enjoyed the tour with you since you helped me a lot. The weather was not so cooperative but I hope you could touch a little bit different aspect of Japan.
