Views of Mount Fuji: A Day Trip to Hakone | TokyoReview by: Adelle T
Dream come true!
We were so lucky to go to Hakone on a clear day as I got to fulfill my dream of seeing Mount Fuji in all its splendor! Hakone is such a beautiful place and Hiroshi was the perfect guide. He gave us great insights of the local culture and history and it really was just the perfect thing to do to escape the hustle and bustle of busy Tokyo. Thank you, Hiroshi-san for the wonderful experience and for being the highlight of our trip!

This personalized tour was an excellent experience. Our guide Noriko was great and even suggested we changed the tour date so we could have good weather. She was so knowledgeable and gave us great insights into Japanese way of life. She was also able to accommodate all our family needs and experience the wonderful site of Mt Fuji from extraordinary places around this area. Arigato!

The tour was great as well as the host. I would suggest to do this tour in two days. For one day to get there and back is to far. But overall a great experience.
