Sometimes it is difficult to get seats on the bus to Lake Chuzenji (Kegon Falls), so smaller group is preferable.

We will walk a lot, so please wear walking shoes like sneakers. You will need to take off your shoes several times.

There is no way of avoiding stairs. The Accessibility of the World Heritage is extremely low.

Nikko is coldler than Tokyo.

Important message from the guide

GoWithGuideFind your perfect tour guide at GoWithGuide. Relax and cherish unforgettable tours with loved ones. Create personalized tours for a truly memorable trip!

It will be first booked, first served basis, but could you make inquiries before booking?


If you're interested in TOKYO, MOUNT FUJI, or NIKKO, please CHECK the TOURS before you make inquiries.


(Some transportation for Mount Fuji or Nikko might be fully booked if you do last minute booking.)


I could also guide KYOTO, HIMEJI etc. if you will cover my transportation fare round trip from Tokyo.


If you'd like a car chartered, please check the PRIVATE CARS TOUR by yourself.

It's concerned with your budget, so I'm afraid I cannot make arrangements for that, but I will be happy to guide you with the car you chartered.


It's impossible to make quotes without knowing the spots you would like to visit.

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

Tokyo is not a compact city, but a huge one.


If you have difficulties with stairs, please tell me in your message. Thank you.

Knowledgeable and flexible

Yoko was very knowledgeable about everyplace we visited. She was also understanding of my slower walking pace. I knit and crochet and she helped me find some Made in Japan yarns I can't find in the USA. Thank-you for the history lessons and fun quizzes!

Katie B.

Thank you for a great review, Katie san.  I glad you could have a good Okonomiyaki that you have dreamt of. Even it was a windy day, I enjoyed talking with you. I hope you can knit something special with the Japanese yarns. I hope you enjoy your cruise!!

Excellent tour and excellent guide.

Yoko was an amazing guide! She was lovely to spend the day with and the amount of knowledge she has about Japan is impressive. We would have never been able to see so much of Tokyo in 8 hours if it wasn’t for her. We also had an authentic Japanese lunch and managed to also attend a matcha tea ceremony. Thank you Yoko for a lovely day!

Sarah K.

Thank you so much for the sweet day and an amazing review. I'm glad you'd like the washoku set meal and the tea ceremony. The restaurant I recommend at Tsukiji serves a very reasonable lunch with the best misoshiru I know so far so when you come back to Tokyo please give it a try. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan. Thank you again. It was so lovely meeting both of you!!

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.

Mount Fuji
10 hours

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.
