An experienced and flexible guide to tailor the experience for you

Chinami is a very agreeable person and has a lot of knowledge about the area. She is very kind and helpful and will do the extra step to ensure you are pleased with the experience. We visited places that we would not have seen by ourselves, and we were very pleased with the experience. This is the first time I hire a guide and it is very refreshing to be able to rely on someone to show you the region and what is interesting to see. You don't need to spend hours on google looking for the perfect itinerary. Chinami tailored the experience to our family with youg kids.

Chinami N.

Thank you vary much for the good review. I had such a nice day with all of the family members. I am so glad to manage to go where you wanted to experience this time of time of year. I am sure that the photos we took will be good memories in Mt Fuji area. I hope we see each other near future since the area differs from seasons. Please take care and live safely in Japan. Thank you again.

Enjoyable and Engaging Tour

I only had a few hours to spend at Mt. Fugi and wanted to experience the beauty of the area. This tour perfectly satisfied my desire. Chinami speaks great English and is a joy to talk to. As a native of the area, she was able to answer the many inquisitive questions I had about the area, history, and culture (in addition to engaging in some good conversations around current affairs). I was traveling alone and didn't know the area, so having Chinami as my guide helped ensure I made efficient use of my time. In addition, I really appreciated how much Chinami cared about my entire experience, communicating with me during all of my travels out and back to ensure I was not lost and safe. Thank you, Chinami!

There are so many things to se and to do. Thanks again!Take care! Chinami

Seeing the Mt Fuji area with Chinami

From the day I first enquired about a tour with Chinami she could not have been more helpful & even sent messages advising us that it was a busy time of year & to book our train tickets ASAP. She met us at the Otsuki train station & we had a wonderful day exploring the Ice & Wind caves & lunch at a local village. When the kids spotted an amusement park near Mt Fuji she was very obliging to change the itinerary so they could fit in a couple of rides. This was an absolute highlight for them. Thank you Chinami for sharing your love of the Mt Fuji area with us all, we really enjoyed the day we spent with you ?

Chinami N.

Thank you very much, Wendy and everyone. I had a great time with you. the weather was perfect, wasn't it?I am so happy to show you around under that sunny. However one regret was your young people didn't have enough time to spent at the amusement park. Please come back mt Fuji area again, There are more to see and to do. Chinami

Chinami Tour Guide Extraordinaire

After leaving Tokyo, I booked Chinami for 6 hours because I wanted to get far out into nature. She filled the entire time with her wealth of expertise and even brought hand-drawn diagrams to visually explain as well. She was totally accomodating to what I hoped to accomplish in the day and knowledgeable on many topics. Now I plan to return one summer to climb the summit of Mt. Fuji and Chinami will be my first call to be my guide. Much thanks!

Chinami N.
