What a marvellous tour!
Pick up from Shinjuku, Keiko Plaza Hotel.
Firstly had a lovely guide Yuki. She gave lots of interesting information about Mount Fuji and Japanese culture on the journey. Very friendly and personable.
A lot of the day is spent on a coach, as other reviewers noted, however unlike other comments this for me was an opportunity to see a rural Japan. Passing paddy fields, green mountains and residential areas was just part of the joy of the day.... plenty of photo opportunities on the bus inuding mount Fuji at s distance.
Mount Fuji itself was magnificent. We did only have 35 mins there however I stood on the observation tower, prayed at the shrine and got my souvenirs! Got lots of photos and enjoyed every second. The shrine in particular was very atmospheric. There was only a few of the many vistors seeming to chose to go there. here was cloud descending while there and I guess later in the day it would be cloud covered which was frustrating for other reviewers. However while I could imagine total cloud cover would be disappointing it is nature and not something the tour could ever possibly control.... you are high above sea level and nature cannot be tamed.
We then had lunch at the ninja resort for 45mins. Very pleasant buffet style. Tasty and lots to chose from.
Next was Lake Ashi..... pleasant 15 min cruise with sights including a shrine to a great dragon!
Finally we were unable to go on the cable cars due to wind.... again hardly the tour's fault.... mother nature again. Instead quickly went to the nearby Aquarium. I will admit I would have preferred the cable car and the enclosures sadly seemed very small..... probably this was the lower point of the day but was bucked up by having the chance to buy a Hakone wooden box. The wood carving of this area is stunning take a look at the shops nearby!
Final back to Shinjuku station by our bus. Very happy indeed!
A wonderful and delightful tour - highly recommended it. Kumiko was excellent. Very personal and terrific throughout the whole day. She did an outstanding job. Her English was perfect. We highly recommend this tour.
Was a very enjoyable trip, guide was experienced and friendly, ride was very comfortable!
Very good tour with the guide Kats being very informative throughout the trp. Enjoyed his comments about the facts of the region. If you have a chance I would would highly recommend that you do this tour.
Amazing! Was perfect start to finish! Definitely recommend
It was so easy to meet up at the bus station and head off to Mt. Fuji for the 2 hour ride. On the ride the tour guide gave us lots of information that we would never have known. The day was also beautiful, which topped it all of and the view from the top of the gondola was spectacular.
This tour was fantastic! Although a little rushed, it was a great way to visit Mt Fuji and Mt Hakone. Our tour guide was fantastic and very entertaining. I would highly recommend taking the lunch option with the tour. The food was amazing.
