Wonderful day in Fuji Five Lakes

Chinami is a pleasure to spend a day with! We are a family of 4 with grown daughters and enjoyed a day which includes the ice and wind caves, walking at the nature trails, Lake Saito and Kawaguchiko. She gave us good advice to visit the Kubota Itchiku Museum the day before. Filled with knowledge about Mt Fuji and attentive to our needs and bus schedules to minimize waiting. Highly recommend!

Chinami N.

Thank you very much for the good review. The weather was not good in the morning, however, I was so glad that you could see Mt Fuji in lake Saiko area. I was impressed all of you are good shape. I recommend that you walk other trails in the forest and hike other mountains, including 1~5 th station of Mt Fuji. Please take care yourselves and keep in touch Chinami

A Wonderful Time in Kawaguchiko

We had an amazing time with Chinami-san :) She was incredibly helpful and patient with helping us navigate our way to Kawaguchiko and, upon arriving, she was so so nice and a wonderful guide. She not only showed us an excellent glimpse into the history and site of Kawaguchiko/Fuji, but also was just an overall very friendly and personable companion to have along the way. She was always mindful of our time and energy and we’d 100% recommend her as a guide for anyone visiting this beautiful place.

Chinami N.

Thank you so much for the good review. I am happy that you enjoyed the tour. Mt Fuji area is one of the most popular destinations, which you knew now. Please spend at least one night in different season next time. Also try to get on highway bus! Take care and keep in touch Chinami

Strolling around Yamanashi wineries in a relaxing mood

Trying Japanese wine while visiting the area of Yamanashi has always been into my interests. I was lucky to make my trip with Chinami-san. She could organize everything, and arranged all the logistics (would have been impossible to visit all the winery area without a car). Everything was done without rush, in a very relaxed mood. She was knowledgeable, but also curious about my interests. We had “hoto” ramen in a fascinating atmosphere. Time flew fast while we had meaningful conversations! I can’t praise enough her, and will be my first choice for a future trip in the region.

Chinami N.

Thank you very much for the good review. I am glad that you enjoyed the tour. We could visit several wineries including Miyakoen, which is one of my favorite places in the area. Please come back in Autumn and I suggest joining a tour of the wineries next time. Have a great time in Tokyo. I hope we see each other in near future. Chao! Chinami
