A Recent Review of this tour

Mr. Shin was an exceptional tour guide who made sure he med our needs:Mt. Fuji. He introduced us to the treasures of HAKONE and explained the rich historical background of the town. We went to the iconic old teahouse that served travelers during the Edo Period and had the pleasure of meeting the Yamamoto family who are still serving travelers of today. It was a pleasure to meet Shin. HAKONE will be one of my favorite places. I pray that it will continue to flourish as they preserve their history.
