This tour takes you more closer to Mt.Fuji, visiting Fujinomiya, which is 30km east of Shimizu port. This city is located on the southern foot of Mt.Fuji, being away only 20km from the top. There are so many spots worth seeing gifted from Mt.Fuji. Also, the gorgeous view of the mountain is always at the side of you. For going to and from there, we can take the local railways, which must be a fun experience, too.

Motoyuki H. Japan Tour Reviews

Shimizu/Mt. Fuji

We had an excellent day chasing the perfect view of Mt. Fuji with the very knowledgeable guide Moto. He is also a hiking guide for those who want to climb the mountain. We could only recommend him as a guide!

Great day out with a great guide!

We took a car in from Tokyo to meet up with Moto for a trip to Aokigahara Forest and some views of Fuji. This was my first time using this site and I was a little hesitant at first, but after a few back and forth e-mails I was feeling more comfortable. We met Moto at the train station and started our journey. On the way to our first stop, the Wind Cave in Aokigahara Moto noticed that there was a good view forming of Mt Fuji. He turned around into a viewing spot and we ended up having the best picture and view of Fuji of the whole day. We continued on to the Wind Cave and Ice Cave which were very cool (pun intended). We love caves and these were pretty awesome. We did take about a 20 min walk through the forest to get from one cave to the other which was plenty to get the feel of it that we were looking for. So isolated feeling and quiet. After the caves we went to a couple more viewing spots by the lakes and then stopped for a nice lunch. Then on to the top of the Hill to see the Chureito Pagoda. This is the Pagoda where you can get a great picture with Mt Fuji in the background. We couldn't see as much of Mt Fuji as we did in the morning but enough. To end the trip we made a stop at a nice little Sake Brewery, Ide-Jozoten. It had been cloudy for a couple of days and raining at the start of our day going there. We had no expectations of seeing Mt Fuji, but we did! Moto was so concerned about making sure we had views of Fuji and wanted everything to be great for us. He did a fantastic job showing us around and the stops that he picked were great. Couldn't have asked for a better day out or a better guide. Thank you Moto san!

Thanks for your review. Even though it is hard to view the mountain in this period of the year, we could find the beautiful summit capped by the snow! Assuming that Mount Fuji has promised your fortune in the future. Bless you!

Seeking the elusive mt Fuji

As a small group of 8 our tour with Motoyuki was a wonderful mix of beauty, experience and knowledge. We were taken to Lake Motosu, the shiraito falls a lovely tea house and sake tasting. We found Motoyuki knowledgeable, kind and a great tour guide. I would highly recommend him.
