Kawaguchiko is the most popular lake among five lakes at the foot of Mt Fuji.There are many places to go in all seasons.You see Mt Fuji from different directions.Not only enjoying sceanery, but also you have great tour at the sake brewery.
Meet you at Kawaguchiko station (The terminal of train and highway bus in Mt Fuji area)
The Sake brewery use the spring water from Mt Fuji. You taste several sake after the formative tour about sake making.
You take the rope sway called Fuji Panoramic Ropeway. You see whole Mt Fuji from the top of mountain if the weather permits. You also see Lake Kawaguchiko from there.
I suggest that you have local noodles called Hoto. Hoto includes a lot of vegetables with Miso soup.
You enjoy cruising by APPARE(means well done!) in lake Kawaguchiko. The sight seeing ship is traditional and similar one used during the warring States period.
There are many different type of flowers depending on seasons. You can shop, have food or drinks as well as a good view of Mt Fuji at the end of the tour.
See you off there
transportation fee about 800 yen (you and guide), lunch, ropeway and cruise 1600 yen per person (you)
I can guide you in Shizuoka and Nagano if you pay for my transportation fee (and accommodation depending on time a tour starts and where).
If you would like me to pick up in Tokyo, I have to ask you pick up fee as well.
However, when we meet at a station, I won't charge any extra fee.
If you can not arrive at Kawaguchiko station around 9, I will change the tour in order to fit your plan.
I might change the itinerary if we expect bad weather. In that case, I will tell you in advance.
I recommend you go to the world heritage center or Kubota Ichiku art museum instead.
Ms Chinami is the best private tour guide we have ever met. She is very friendly and her English is good. She has tailor-made our itinerary according to our preference, and has shown us the most beautiful scenery near the Kawaguchiko area. We had very nice local lunch (Houtou noodles and tempura) and visited some good souvenir shops too! Everything is perfect and we are grateful to have Ms Chinami with us! Thank you!
Thank you very much for such a nice review! I am so happy that you had good time in Mt Fuji. We could see all day long and just nice weather. I am also glad that you enjoy lunch. As you know Mt Fuji are is huge and we just went to Lake Kawaguchiko area this time. I would like you to visit another four lakes. Depending on season, you can see different flowers and events such as fire works. I hope we see each other near future. Thanks again. Good luck on your job! Chinami
We had the best day with Chinami at Lake Kawaguchiko/Mt Fuji. Chinami organised a personalised itinerary based on our interests. We gained so much knowledge about the rich culture and history of the landmarks we visited, an added bonus to the picturesque scenery. She also has some great food recommendations! Chinami was prompt, knowledgeable, kind and friendly plus her English was excellent. We highly recommend Chinami for a private tour of the Mt Fuji area! An experience we will never forget!
Thank you so much for the review. Since we started to the tour earlier, so we managed to go many places by public transportation. I am impressed with your interest for Japanese culture and history. I enjoyed guiding you, too. Please come back to the area near future! Thanks again and take care. Chinami
Chinami was an excellent choice as a tour guide. She went above and beyond throughout the process, beginning when she worked with me in recommending places at Mt Fuji for my proposal to my fiancé. Chinami recommended excellent options and did this all before I had paid for a booking. She helped me pick transport towards Mt Fuji and met me and my partner off of the bus. Chinami is incredibly knowledgeable of the area, both because she is local and understands the little intricacies of the town and because she has studied to know so much about the area. She was able to relate facts about history and how it has impacted Japanese customs in the area. Chinami is also very keen to give you the best experience possible, she helped us find a chemist and spoke to the staff to help us find the products we needed, and she would speak and work out problems for us without a second thought (even when we said it was fine), at one point asking why an area for viewing Mt Fuji was closed off and had it opened to us, all the way to helping us reorganise our return bus journey so we could sit next to one another. Chinami helped me make memories that will last a lifetime and will forever be special to me and my partner because of how she conducted herself. If you have a chance to book her, do. Thank you Chinami!
Thank you so much for such a great review! I wonder I could record the video on the phone properly when you proposed. If not(even it is OK ), please come back to Mt Fuji area in different season for honeymoon, as I said. You can spend a week! Anyway, congratulations on your engagement. Please keep in touch and good luck on teaching! Chinami
Chinami was a fantastic guide. She was very good at answering all my emails and questions beforehand. She modified the tour to my needs based on my disability. I highly recommend her as your guide! Thank you so much!!!
Thank you very much for the good review. It was pity that we couldn't make the tour as I have planted because of many seasons, but now you know the forest and caves are now. I wanted to talk with all of you since you are such a cheerful people. I hope you come back to Mt Fuji near future. Take care and keep in touch Chinami
