This was a great day visiting the 5 lakes of mt Fuji. Yoshi was great guide with terrific knowledge of area. Highly recommend touring with Yoshi
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The lakes showed us different landscapes with Mt. Fuji at at each location with less tourists. Thank you very much for touring with me at the end of the season of snow-capped Mt. Fuji.
Yoshi said finding our way around Tokyo station unaided would be really easy. WRONG. Before we met he sent an email showing clearly he had confused us with someone else. We were to sail on Lake Kawaguchiko; taken the ropeway to Kachikachiyama Mountain. Yoshi said the queues were too long. Neither happened. We got to watch him eat a huge lunch at our expense. He never got tired of talking about himself and his music. We DID get to Kawaguchiko Music Museum. THAT was worth putting up with the rest.

Excellent in every aspect including help with booking further travel. Tour altered to suit weather conditions and guide positive throughout. Great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We were able to view cherry blossoms in Iyashi-no-sato village that just bloomed on the previous day of out visit. Unfortunately it was cloudy though we toured on the alternative date monitoring the local weather forecast. But I really appreciate your cooperation. Thank you.
Yoshi was an incredibly accommodating and competent guide. From the beginning of the tour inquiry procedure to the tour around Mt. Fuji itself, Yoshi made sure we were comfortable with the itinerary and all of the necessary arrangements. Our tour was custom-made, with a drive through a rustic peach and farming community, strawberry picking, different (I.e. less known and less touristy) views of the mountain, an ice cave visit, and a delicious sampling of local cuisine. Would book a tour with him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We have unexpectedly enjoyed viewing peach blossoms in Fuefuki Town on the way to the strawberry farm as well as cherry blossoms around Mt. Fuji in a day. I appreciate your request that let me tailor and experience this special tour with you.
Yoshi san has been a great tour guide. We manage to view Mt Fuji for all sides in one trip. All amazing views. And I had the best noodle ever, the Hoto Noodle.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We have visited four of the Fuji Five Lakes. Thanks to the previous heavy snow fall and the fine weather, they showed us the distinctive landscapes of Mt. Fuji in the background with much more snow on it than usual. Thank you!
Yoshi is an excellent guide and we had a fabulous two days with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, thanks to the perfect weather, our two-day tour visiting all of the Fuji Five Lakes was successful to capture the beautiful pictures of the magnificent view of Mount Fuji and the lakes. Thank you!
This personalised tour was an excellent experience through some wonderful sites around Mt Fuji. Yoshihide was able to accommodate all our family needs and offer a rich, full day experience that included a veriety of things to do, cultural places and customary experiences to participate in and experience the wonderful site of Mt Fuji from extraordinary places around this area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We have experienced the special occasion of New Year Holidays in Japan including mochi rice cake pounding at Saiko Iyashino Sato village and the brilliant decoration at Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine. We were lucky to view the clear landscape of Mt. Fuji which is said to be luckiest item to see in the first dream of the year in Japan. Thank you!

Yoshi is a first-rate tour guide. He took us to places around Lake Kawaguchiko with magnificent views of Mount Fuji that we never would have discovered on our own. He is a really interesting person and because he is completely fluent in English, you can have conversations about Japan beyond the usual tourist questions, which comes in handy on an all-day tour. This is the perfect itinerary for enjoying the area and we highly recommend that you hire Yoshi to show you around.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The weather was perfect to view Mt. Fuji from Lakes Kawagchiko, Saiko and the onsen bath. We enjoyed conversation about Japanese culture and language that your kids are learning as well. Thank you.

Yoshi has been a wonderful guide from beginning to end. He made the whole trip a memorable one. We had asked him to show us the best spots to view Mt Fuji from the many lakes around this beautiful mountain, and he did such a marvellous job that we got all the beautiful pictures we wanted. My kids simply enjoyed the day. My wife and I had great day to remember. Thanks Yoshi, for making that day a great day for my family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, we have visited Lake Kawaguchiko, Saiko, Shojiko and Motosuko in a day. Thanks to the perfect weather without cloud, we have captured the images at the best view spots of Mt. Fuji and each lake including Shojiko with the reflection of the mountain on the surface. Thank you for touring with me!
From the time Yoshi met us at our agreed meeting place to the time he dropped us off, there was nothing short of fantastic. The tour to Mount Fuji was superb. It was personalised to our liking, especially the car ride to lake Saito where we had a clear view of the majestic Mount Fuji at a close distance. Yoshi had planned an amazing tour for me and my friends. To top it all off we had a delicious halal Japanese meal at a local and friendly restaurant. Thank you for a truly memorable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The weather helped our great experience with the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji, which made the tour so memorable for me as well. Thank you!
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The photographing tour to all of the Fuji Five Lakes was memorable for me as well. The weather was fine and the Lake Kawaguchiko Autumn Leaves Festival showed us beautiful scenery with the leaves in red and snow-capped Mt. Fuji.

My 16 year old daughter received a one day tour of the Mt. Fuji area from Yoshi. She had a great time. Yoshi is very meticulous and detailed in preparation; which is reassuring considering the tour was for my young daughter. Yet, Yoshi personable and accommodating. His knowledge of the area, sites to see, and things to do amazed us. We will be referring him to our friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We were lucky to view the summit of Mt. Fuji clearly just 10 minutes before leaving the site. I am happy to hear that your young daughter enjoyed the tour. I hope you will be back to Japan again with all your family members. Thank you!

Yoshi was a wonderful and informative guide. He worked with me to develop a tour that was personal and interesting for our group of 6 adults who wanted to see Mt. Fuji and the Hakone area. We liked that he adjusted the tour to accommodate the cold weather and cloudy skies and tried to get us the best vantage locations for what we wanted to see. His personal knowledge of the area made the day very enjoyable. His English is exceptional. Will definitely request him again when we go back.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Unfortunately Mt. Fuji was partially visible due to cloudy weather. However you were encouraging the guide and positive to enjoy the tour all day long. I hope it was memorable for you, too. Thank you!
Yoshi was a wonderfully accommodating guide. He meticulously planned our day and was flexible on the day according to weather. His commitment to his customers is incredible. His communication prior to our tour was impeccable, he answered all my questions quickly and courteously. He accommodated a few changes I required with ease. We had a wonderful day out and if you are considering a day out then you will not be sorry if you book Yoshi. Our party of 8 highly recommend Yoshi, thank you Yoshi :)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Our tour went on well as initially planned though Mt. Fuji was partially covered with clouds. I appreciate your cooperation with booking your green car seats as well as mine and accepting all my proposal regarding your itinerary. Thank you!
Our tour went smoothly that day bec the weather cooperated. We were able to see Mt Fuji clearly with no clouds at all. The weather cool but not too cold. Yoshi san took us to his perfect private spot for our photos & it was simply breathtaking. We learned about Shinto religion & experienced wearing kimono too. Yoshi San was very helpful with information around Tokyo too. He quickly replies to your email. He is very flexible & we highly recommend him to everyone & speaks good english.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We were so lucky for being able to view magnificent Mt. Fuji from Lake Kawaguchiko thanks to the perfect weather. I was happy to see you enjoy the samurai-era kimono costume at "Saiko Iyashino-Sato Nenba" old folk village. The tour with you was so memorable for me, too. Thank you!

Yoshi was friendly and knowleadgable about the stuff in Mount Fuji. He also went beyond his scope and was very helpful as I was travelling with 4 kiddos and a grandma on wheelchair. Yoshi was also a great detailed planner. Customizing the whole trip to also fitthe kids... they loved the ninja camp and riding the amphibian vehicle + playing snow on the fourth station of Mount Fuji.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was really happy to see your family excited with their first experience to play in the snow at Mount Fuji. Thank you very much!
