The perfect day with Motoyuki in the five lakes area!

Motoyuki was kind enough to pick us up from our hotel. He then guided us through many sights in the Aokigahara forest and had lots of useful history and information to share. We were very lucky to be with him in the forest because it's easy to get lost. He also showed us Mount Fuji from many beautiful angels and we enjoyed great conversation over lunch. I highly recommend everyone book with him when they are sightseeing in this area.

A guide that really cares about your experience in Japan

Motoyuki is fantastic. It was a great tour but even more important was he went way out of his way to help us. I was with my elderly mother and he went to a lot of effort beyond what could be expected to help make things easier on her. I have stayed at some very high end resorts and the customer service from Motoyuki was even better. He is not only a good tour guide but such a calm and caring man. Looking forward to seeing him again next time I am in the area.

Aokigahara Forrest, Mt Fuji and Arakurayama Shrine

Moto is a fantastic guide, he was happy to share his local knowledge of Mt Fuji, the Forrest, and the Shrine which was exactly what we were looking for. Moto was able to accomodate my slow walking and extra stops for viewing My Fuji. I would book Moto again in a heart beat, he's amazing :)

Best day in Japan seeing Mount Fuji and Aokigahara Forest!

We had the absolute best day with Motoyuki! He was so fantastic and kind right from the pick up and made everything easy for us with helping figure out transport of where to meet him and he planned one of our most memorable days in Japan. Our itinerary on our limited time in the Fuji area he was able to show us some amazing viewpoints at the Fuji 5 lakes and took us into Aokigahara forest to the ice caves which was incredible and even to a Japanese onsen with views of Mount Fuji from the indoor and outdoor hot springs. Lunch was also amazing and we were able to try some local delicacies to the area. I highly recommend a day tour with him! Incredibly great value in hiring him as our private guide to take us to this area as having done it by ourselves would have been difficult and not nearly as efficient as it was being able to have him plan our day for us and guide us all around. Looking forward to coming back to Japan someday and being able to hire him to take us to another area of Japan for another memorable day. Thank you Moto for giving us such a perfect day of adventure in Fuji region!
