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 but if you choose both Chureito Pagoda and Nemba, you might not be able to choose the other options unless you are willing to use taxis.

Tour Important Information

Till approximately July 20, it will be RAINY SEASON. The visibility of Mount Fuji drops seriously.


10 hours include the time from/to Tokyo, not 10 hours starting from Mount Fuji area. NOT ON WEEKENDS. I recommend a Tokyo tour for weekends.


GOTEMBA PREMIUM OUTLET, Aokigahara, the caves are NOT INCLUDED in this tour. Please contact other guides for them.


We have rainy seasons from Mid June to around July 20. During that period, the chances of seeing Mount Fuji could be very low.


CHECK THE WEATHER FORECAST of LAKE KAWAGUCHIKO AREA ONLINE, please.

Also could you check the live cameras I wrote in my blog.


I'll keep my fingers crossed, but you can NOT ALWAYS have the view of Mt. Fuji.


Also TRY TO AVOID WEEKENDS if you can unless you love to wait in lines.


We will have better chances if you stay till twilight at the Lake area, so I wish you wouldn't have dinner reservation or other reservations afterward.


Chuo Highway buses are less expensive and reasonable, basically punctual but sometimes might get jammed.

Some are fully booked up, so ADVANCE BOOKING IS NECESSARY.

I would call them and book them. At the vending machine, you could use your credit card if you know your four-digit PIN No.


It is impossible to go to all of the eight options in a day.


#1, Saiko Iyashi no Sato Nemba takes 40 minutes from Kawaguchiko Station and the bus comes only every 30 minute, so if you choose #1, we can only visit a few more spots.


#7, Kawaguchiko Music Forest Museum will be closed at 18:00.


WEARING WALKING SHOES/SNEAKERS are recommendable, whichever options you choose.

It's a little chilly during the Lake Cruise, you will appreciate a nice jacket to keep you warm.


We will basically use buses around Lake Kawaguchi unless you're willing to pay for cabs.

The loop buses run approximately every twenty minutes.


If you hope the tour to start or end around Kawaguchiko/Fujisan area, I will send you a new itinerary after your inquiries, so please let me know.

You need the transportation fare shown at EXCLUSION and check the highlights for admission. Kawaguchiko Museum of Art and Kubota Ichiku Kimono Museum are closed on Tuesdays.

Nikko and Mount Fuji are approximately two hours on Limited Express from Shinjuku or Asakusa.

Mount Fuji Tour Reviews

Great Tour of Tokyo

We had a lovely guide in Tokyo, Yoko, who was with us for two days. Her English was impeccable. The first day she took us to the main shrines Meiji - Jingu ( where we saw several wedding parties) and Senso-ji along with teaching us how to navigate the metro and train system! We wanted ramen for lunch and Yoko delivered! We found Yoko easy to be with and full of energy - she gave information easily without having to prompt her. She never wearies of questions either! We were familiar with the shogunate eras but she was able to fill in all the blanks for us without drowning us in facts and numbers as well as our “knowledge” of the yakuza from “Tokyo Vice”! We enjoyed her so much we asked to book her for a second day while she guided us through the Imperial Gardens. She not only knows her history but also the names of plants and trees to help understand the beautiful gardens. We mentioned that we wanted to buy a knife and go to the Tsukiji market. She mentioned a free event at the Anakusa Cultural Tourist Center where we were able to see geishas perform traditional dances and one of the 6 houkan ( male counterpoint to the geisha) left in Japan. In order to attend the event I had to cancel my tickets to the Yayoi Kusama museum and Yoko found a different time that I could repurchase my tickets so that we could do it all. She reworked our schedule so that we could do it all!! She took us to a nice restaurant for lunch that was superb and a favorite of locals. She was so helpful with information regarding other things we had planned and would readily share travel information and other ideas for our remaining days in Tokyo! If only we could have had her travel to Kyoto with us too! My husband and I highly recommend Yoko but I warn you - you better have your walking shoes on or you will not be able to keep up with her!!

Robert G.

Martha san, thank you so much for writing such an incredible review. I deeply appreciate both you and Robert san enjoyed Japanese culture and cuisines so much. I had a great time talking with both of you. I also wanted to show you interesting spots in Yanaka besides Yanaka Ginza so sorry we ran out of time. As you often have a business trip to Japan, I will hope I can show you around the gorgeous, artistic World Heritage Nikko some day soon. Thank you again for such a lovely heartful review and your generosity. I hope you have a nice flight back to the States.

Action packed fun day!

We had a great time with Yoko, it was an action-packed day with a combination of history, architecture, and fun. Yoko is very knowledgeable and planned a great itinerary. While I won't go into too much detail of our itinerary--she hit all the points we planned and was flexible in including some fun stops--including the free view of the city, rainbow cotton candy and even dropping us off at the sushi restaurant at the end of our day. We are a family of 4 with two kids 11 and 9, she balanced our itinerary so that it was both fun and informative. When booking recommend doing it earlier in your trip--she has some great tips on travel, saving money and other sights. Highly recommend!

Adel H.

Thank you so much for a great review, Adel san!!  I was impressed that you'd like to have the educational part for your lovely kids. Connor and Audrey. I was wondering if Connor could walk thru the Meiji Jingu Shrine when he complained about walking another hour but he did it!! It was such a lovely day meeting all of you. I was amazed with Audrey not only being cute but smart like her parents. The kids seemed to be too young to enjoy the sushi yet but I was happy to share the moments enjoying the huge cotton candies and the fun day together. I'll be looking forward to seeing you again soon. Thank you again for the great day and a wonderful review.

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.

Lake Kawaguchi is the most popular place to view Mt. Fuji. I will take you to Arakurayama Park, which is the most popular place to take the picture of Mt. Fuji with the Pagoda. We will take a direct express train from Shinjuku in Tokyo to Lake Kawaguchi to avoid the traffic jam by a highway bus. The place is now overcrowded with foreign visitors so I will choose places not so busy yet. In case of unfavorable weather to view the mountain, I will propose other places.
