We were very lucky when we took this tour because despite the cloudy day, the sun came out when we reached Mt. Fuji. Our tourguide and bus driver were kind enough to stop the bus at roadside to get a good angle of the mountain even before our main stop. Props to our tourguide for bringing colored papers ang gave us lessons on how to do an origami of Mt. Fuji.
The cruise of Lake Ashi at Hakone was surreal.
I highly suggest taking the bullet train going back because traffic is unpredictable going back to the city.
Take this tour to see the sights and sounds of Kyoto the way the locals do. Our tourguides Hiro and Jagna took us around Kyoto by means of train and we went to see the beautiful Fuishimi Inari Shrine and Tofukuji Temple. Our tour highlight was when we went to the Geisha Districts and was able to see about 12 geishas about to go out for the night. The tour felt like we were sightseeing with friends and not with a tour guide. I highly recommend it!
One tip though, the tourguide will meet you at the designated meeting point so don't look for an establishment :o)
