Nice trip to area around Fuji
Mt. Fuji, Lake Kawaguchi, Oshino Hakkai & Gotemba Premium Outlets with Lunch | feb 2020
We had very nice Tour Guide. She was very friendly, helpful and patient during all day (Fluent English speaking). Nice that they thought about safety and insisted on using disinfection spray provided each time when entering the bus, because at this time people around Asia were aware of virus coming from China side. Bus was big enough, My travel was on Saturday and weather was good enough, at least the first part of the day to see Mount Fuji. Unfortunately we did not get to the 5th station as road was closed and Guide told that actually there are only few month during the summer when You can get there as all other Year time roads are closed because of heavy snow. (This is probably something what should be included in Tour description, that You can reach 5th station only during the summer). Otherwise all the trip was good, we had some nice stops where to enjoy some Fabulous views, we spent some time at the village not far away from the Mount. That village gets water from the mount and it is very clean, there are several water pounds with crystal clean water and exotic fishes in it. You cant swim there but You can drink that water. Last few hours we spent at the shopping center and this is probably tho most disappointing part, because we had to leave early the water pound village where we could nicely walk, do some nice local shopping, drinking water, etc., but instead of that we had to go to shopping center and buy nothing, because all is to expensive and actually You can find all products in standart shopping center at Your own town or even any town in Japan. Beside that we had very good lunch (included) nearby the famous Cawaguchiko lake and later had a chance to taste Japanese traditional green tee (included) at special place near by the same lake. Later after shopping center we went back to Tokyo which took around 2h even if the traffic supposed to be bad. Our meeting and leaving point was the same at the Cocoon Tower near Shinjuku station. It is easy to find if just walk around the building until find bunch of Tour guides and people hanging around. Just have to ask and find Your Guide ;-) This trip definitely worth that money You will pay for it especially if You get chance to get to 5th station, but that can happen only at Summer time.
Many thanks for this Tour and attitude while having it ;-)
With the Best wishes, Janis (From Riga)...Meer lezen
