Thank You For Giving Us A Good Day In Mount Fuji

Booking a tour far in advance to Mount Fuji is a hit or miss, as the viewing times are a toss up and it is hard to tell when you will be able to see it. Unfortunately, the day my mother and I went it was pouring rain, and Mount Fuji was hiding. This doesn't change the fact that Nobu was a good guide and got us around efficiently. We had a good lunch and enjoyed our conversations with Nobu. The day may have not went exactly how we planned, but our guide still made a memorable day for us.

Nobu S.

Thank you very much for your review. It was a pity that I could not show you and your mother the beautiful Mt. Fuji, but I am glad to know that you still enjoyed the tour. As I told you, it is a message from Mt. Fuji to come to Japan again to see her. I am looking forward to meeting you and your mother again in the future. Nobu
