Great time with Kochi-san. Well planned day in Hakone. The rain that fell did not dampen our time. Kochi was informative, enthusiastic, and courteous. Lunch at a charming local spot was delicious. I would highly recommend Kochi.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with "Kochi". He was very good at navigating the day in a smoothe an efficient manner. He was very knowledgeable and gave us a good and interesting historical perspective of the area.
Susan-san. Thank you for your kind comment. After typhoon, Hakone had big damage. Railway is now closed by the land slide and will take a few months to be recovered. You are the last visitors before that. Enjoy the rest of your journey. -Kochi
What a wonderful day we had seeing the sights around Hakone. Lots of messages to and from with Junichiro to ensure we were doing what we wanted to do, and working out what was best in the time we had. Our day included a tea ceremony and private onsen. Stunning part of the world with a a friendly and knowledgeable guide who went out of his way to give us a superb day. Thank you
