Take was a first rate guide! Great day trip out of Toyko, plenty too see and do. Got to see Mt Fuji after the clouds burned off.
We had a very interesting and informative guide who made this trip very worthwhile.
Fabulous informative tour, mountain was covered in cloud so that was disappointing but not something that can be controlled.
Excellent Tour, and especially our tour guide Yukiko Kubo. She definitely made the tour interesting. She went the extra mile to make sure we made it on the bullet train, and even confirmed with my hotel the best way to get back to the airport.
Ellie was a fantastic tor guide and the day was brilliant. Despite the fog stopping us having the best view of Mt Fuji, the day was not spoiled. There is so much more to the tour than just this. The Japanese lunch was amazing, lots of choice for less adventurous pallets!
We went on a bus tour from Tokyo to Mount Fuji. We went to the fifth station and were able to see the peak of the mountain from that point. We had the opportunity to walk around at the fifth station and to see the shrine. We had a Japanese lunch at a very nice hotel. We then took a very short 15 minute boat ride on Lake Hakon-en to the ropeway for Mount Hakon-en. It was a very cloudy day and we were not able to see anything from the mountaintop. We then took the bullet train back to Tokyo. Our guide was very professional and spoke English very well.
Darn the fog otherwise we really loved our trip to Mount Fugi and the other attached activities. Our guide did a magnificent job including great instructions on how to return to our hotel on the subway.
Despite being a semi-long bus ride to Mt. Fuji our tour guide gave us mini informative lessons on Japan, Japanese culture, language, and even some fun games. She was super knowledgeable and helpful and made the entire trip a delight.
Tour guide was great, very knowledgable and funny. Tour itself was amazing, shame the weather turned half way through but would recommend it to anyone nevertheless. Very good value for money.
A tour bus picked us up from the hotel to go to the bus depot. Once there, you will find the real bus for your tour. The bus ride to Mt Fuji is long, about 2 hours, but our guide was informative and her English is good enough. Even though that day was cloudy, she was very concerned for us whether we will see Mt Fuji's top. Both her and the driver intentionally looked out for us. They purposefully stopped and let the whole bus out for the 5 minute window when the clouds parted to let us see and take pictures of the mountain top. Once at 5th station, we stopped and buy souvenirs. Afterward, we had an authentic Japanese lunch. If you don't eat fish, don't order the lunch because that is the main lunch, it is one whole piece of rainbow trout from head to tail. The lunch was definitely tasty and authentic though. There is a side chicken dish too, with soba, some vegetable tempura and miso soup. We then went to Hakone and on the boat. The boat is not the pirate boat, so a little bit disappointing, but still a good ride. Then we got on the gondola to go to the top. They packed us quite tight in the gondola, so not too enjoyable. That day was very foggy too, so we couldn't see anything while at the top of the mountain here. The guide tried to teach us a Japanese song and also how to fold Mount Fuji using origami paper. We left to go back to Tokyo on the bullet train. The guide even taught us how to get back to the hotel from Tokyo station. It was definitely a full and long day of fun. We didn't get back to Tokyo till about 7 pm. I would definitely recommend anyone who what to see Mount Fuji, just pray for good weather on your day.
This tour was one of the best I have ever taken. The staff was very kind, nice and helpful. The bus ride filled with great information about the surrounding area and Japan in general. It was really 11 hours of constant enjoyment.
So much fun. One of our fa visited days of the trip. Myka (Mikah?) Was so pleasant and helpful!! We loved every second of this excursion.
My partner and I aren't usually tour people and prefer to do our own thing when travelling, however, we definitely recommend this tour. Marie the tour guide is a wealth of knowledge and has a very good sense of humor. The tour itself is well set out and includes the beautiful Hakone. Lunch was FANTASTIC with a chankonabe-like dish. Highly recommend!
The tour was a brilliant way to conclude our trip. Our tour guide, Makota (or something :-/ ) was brilliant. He was hilarious and knew so much, definitely made the experience. The day was well planned and we had a great time. Definitely recommend!
Now this is a trip that is far better than the description! The 5th station was a waste of time however since you just go to a souvenir shop and buy junk - but the rest of the trip was fantastic. The Mt Komagatake Ropeway offers unbelievable views of Mt Fuji - picture perfect views atop a mountain that is near Mt Fuji. You will be above the clouds and the views of the summit of Mt. Fuji are spectacular. You are not going to climb Mt Fuji though of course - but surely the views of Mt Fuji from the top of Mt Fuji are not going to be very good!

This trip has a lot of time spent on the bus, but you do learn a lot while on your way to the locations. The locations are great and the event for Lake Ashi is amazing! The bullet train back is a great way to travel and shows you the difference in speed to locations.
The tour was excellent. Our tour guide Shima was terrific. She was helpful, knowledgeable and funny and made the tour a pleasure. We were picked up at our hotel even though it was not on the list which took a huge amount of anxiety away as I was concerned about getting to the meeting spot. I would definitely book this tour again.
There was some sort of mix up before the tour began causing us to leave late but after this one glitch, everything was wonderful. Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly, the sites visited were gorgeous, and the food was unique and delicious.
Had a great day on this tour. We managed to get to the 5th station. Had an excellent Japanese lunch and the ride on the bullet train was fantastic. Would do this trip again. So much more to see.
