Awesome Forest Tour!!

I and my friend very enjoy with this trip. Chinami was a very great guide. She know a lot of history of the place, the picture that she draw by herself can make me understand more about the mountain. She also help me organize all thing from booking taxi from hotel, how to go back and arrange a very nice lunch. I really really really recommend her. Don’t hesitant to choose her to be your guide for a good memory day :)

Chinami N.

Thank you for the good review. I am so happy that you enjoyed the tour. Especially, you could see Mt Fuji from the lake side of SAIKO, which is my favorite spot in the forest. I also appreciated everything you have done for me. I hope you walk other trails next time. Take care and good luck on your business. Chinami

A well organized day in viewing Mt Fuji

We had a really nice day with Chinami san. She really knows the area extremely well, and planned a nicely paced itinerary for us to cover the most important areas of the Kawaguchiko area. Lunch at Oshino Hakkai was delicious, and the places we visited were beautiful. Chinami, thanks for the beautiful day!

Chinami N.

Dear Kenneth Thank you very much for the review. I am so happy that you had great views for Mt Fuji from Chureito. Mt Fuji area are full of historical places, which we couldn't cover this time. And as I showed you photos, Mt Fuji area is more beautiful in April since you can see Mt Fuji covered with snow and Cherry blossoms everywhere. So, I hope you visit the area in the future. I appreciated everything you have done for me as well. Take care, Chinami

Amazing tour of Mt Fuji area!!

Our guide Chinami (Cindy) was awesome. She took us far into the bat caves and explained the history of the multiple mountains. She was very knowledgeable and friendly. She also took us on several trails that most tourists don’t go on. We could see many beautiful areas and lakes. Thank you Chinami for a great tour!

Chinami N.

Dear Gerenna and everyone, Thank you for good review. I enjoyed guiding you since all of you are friend, too. We were not able to see Mt Fuji from the lake side, but I think you felt the nature in the forest. I would like you to walk other trails next time (you need to stay in the area longer?) as well. I hope you come to the area near future. Take care, Chinami Chinami

Fun trip with breathtaking views

I would like to thank Chinami for an excellent experience. She communicated a lot prior to the tour and helped modify the day to accommodate a delayed started. She also provided useful direction on the easiest way to get to Lake Kawaguchiko. This was one tour I did not give much thought to, but Chinami had it under control and filled out the day nicely and took us to some amazing spots. She also researched useful background information on the Mt Fuji area. I strongly recommend Chinami for your next tour.

Chinami N.

Thank very much for great review. Did you go back home safely? I am so glad that you spent relax outside town, and enjoyed the Ice cream that your daughter had ever had! I wonder she also could find a good capsule toy in Kawaguchiko station... I hope you come back to Mt Fuji area again near future and stay overnight next time. Thanks a lot ! Take care.
