What you’ll do

You’ll spend a day with one of our hosts getting lost (figuratively) in the magical resort town of Kawaguchi-ko. This quaint mountain town is the ideal base from which to get clear views of the famous Mount Fuji. It also is placed right in the center of the Five Lakes District, and has a wealth of natural resources for you to enjoy - from blankets of lush moss phlox to the calming lavender and blueberry fields. Weave your way through the town and depending on the season, you’ll be able to enjoy the stunning autumn colors, cherry blossoms or flower festival. Wander through the Kawaguchiko Natural Living Centre, be enticed by a music forest or visit an art museum where you’ll learn all about the ancient craft of fabric dyeing. Whatever your preferences, be they active and outdoorsy, or cozy and historic, your host will have you covered! Perhaps you’d like to enjoy a soak in a world-renowned onsen (natural hot spring). Picture this: Warm, pristine mountain water, you, some sake and Mount Fuji in the background.

TOKYO, DAY TRIP TO KAWAGUCHI-KO, FUJI’S NEIGHBORDania

5 average | 3 reviews

April 2019

Kawaguchiko Japan custom tour

This was an awesome day spent in picturesque Kawaguchiko with Dania. Past the delay in hearing from the selected host to 2 days before my trip, Dania was very accommodating, flexible, kind, fun, humble, gracious, took many excellent souvenir photos, and was honest in saying this was also her first trip to the area. She even pre-purchased our bus tickets so we didn’t have to wait in line on travel day. I have many wonderful memories at each stop we went to and indeed it was like traveling with a friend. I would highly recommend this tour and Dania to anyone wanting to enjoy nature near Tokyo.
