A Recent Review of this tour

I had a specific tour request to focus on photography. Yoshi was great in watching the weather forecast and adjusting the schedule to maximize the chance of getting good shots of Mt. Fuji. He also put together a route plan to take in all five lakes surrounding Fuji. The weather cooperated and we had a great day of touring and photos.
