The majestic and incomparable Mount Fuji and its surroundings
, Feb 2020
Visiting Mount Fuji is part of the must-do visits when travelling around Japan and it was an immense privilege to have reached the 4th station @2020m in the year of the 2020 Olympics. The discovery of the Akashi/Ashinoko Lakes on a pirate boat and the volcanic area as well as the black egg was an unforgettable experience. Japan has very multi-faceted sceneries, from mountainous landscapes to sandy beaches, from forests to volcanic areas. Visiting these different areas is important for international visitors so as to understand more Japan. Our driver, Take is a very friendly and helpful person who has made our dream to catch a glimpse/to have a full view of the Mount Fuji come true during our trip to Japan. He also drove us to the Jigokudani Yaen Kōen Park to discover the snow monkeys and to the Karuizawa outlet mall for a shopping session. Our warmest thanks to Take for having safely taken us to these wonderful places and made memorable and precious photos for us.
Hi, Lyra-san and Mantra-san. We were very lucky. Because it was a sunny day. Basically, Mt. Fuji is shy, so she doesn't like to show herself to the public. But the day we visited her was really fine day. I believe that the bless was attributed to the good-doings that you two are behaving every day. And the lamen, or chinese noodles on our lunch was also good.
Guide Mt. Shishiba is a very professional guide. Even though we couldn’t see the Mt. Fuji due to very cloudy weather, he took us to the old Japanese village, traditional market, Hakone, and old Shrines etc. We are very satisfied with his excellent job! Thanks Mr. Shishiba san !
Good morning, Jung san, Young san, Susan san, and Kyung san. How is cruise travel ? It should be comfortable. Thank you so much for your heart-warming review. Unfortunately though it hit the big typhoon while you were staying, the wonderful four sisters know how to have a good time very well. And I'm proud of taking them here and there in Japan. I really hope to meet you all again.
