Everything is perfect

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!

Chinami N.

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

Best Private Tour of the Mt Fuji/Lake Kawaguchiko area with 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!

Chinami N.

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

Professional, personal and precise

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!

Chinami N.

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
