Excellent Service
Our guide Takashi-san has excellent command of English and share with us a lot of information on Mount Fuji, wind/ice cave. He led us to each location and explain clearly. Our driver(Toshi-san) is extremely professional, patiently waiting in the car for us at each site. As we did not manage to catch sunset over Mount Fuji due to bad weather, he volunteer to send us some pictures which he has taken a week earlier. Overall my family enjoyed the trip and the professionalism of both the guide and driver.

Mt Fuji Day Tour with English Speaking Guide
My tour guide was very nice and very knowledgeable of the history of Mt Fuji and the surrounding area. Even though some places are closed due to the state of emergency, I still had a great time and would reccomend him to anyone looking to visit Mt Fuji.

Private Full Day Sightseeing Tour to Mount Fuji and Hakone
My guide, Khizar, loved to talk about all aspects of Japan. He was so knowledgable and explained everything to me to put it all into context. The day tour was just right, not so much that it was rushed but enough to move at a gentle pace and take it all in. Mt. Fuji is spectacular and Lake Kawaguchiko is beautiful. The 30 minute cruise on the lake is definitely worth it. The tour was a great way to see the area and Khizar made it easy and efficient. I would recommend him as a tour guide to anyone visiting the Tokyo area.

Private Mt Fuji and the Gotemba Outlet in One Day from Tokyo
Good tour , they contact me the day before to ask me what we wanted to do . They pick up us in the hotel and take us where we wanted. As we were a group of 8 the guide accompanied my father to si some shopping in the mall and help him with the translation. He was very kind. Due to the they take us to a snow resort which wasn’t in the itinerary , that was great ! Excellent tour

My wife and I toured Japan for 20 days using 9 guides. Zia was by far the best guide we had during our trip. He was prompt, made feel comfortable throughout the trip including tourist sites and lunch. His driving habits, knowledge and english are excellent. We had a great day and came away as friends. I would recommend to all.

Full Day Mt Fuji Lake Kawaguchiko Tour and shopping at Gotemba Premium Outlet
We had a semi private tour booked, ended up we were the only family on the trip, so it was entirely private trip, which was wonderful. The tour guide/driver was excellent, knew exactly where and what to show us. Very fortunate to see clear view of Mt Fuji, even the driver drove us to a nearby site to take a beautiful scenery of Mt Fuji with clear reflection on the lake, just like a postcard picture. Highly recommended for this trip.

Private Tour: Chartered Car to Mt. Fuji Lake Kawaguchiko or Hakone and Lake Ashi
We spent a great day with Takashi (guide) and Toshi (driver) in the 5 lakes region. They planned the whole day according to our preferences. We got spectacular views of Mt. Fuji from the different sites. Traffic was very bad coming back due to culture day weekend, but they kept their positive attitude throughout.

Private Tour: Chartered Car to Mt. Fuji Lake Kawaguchiko or Hakone and Lake Ashi
our guide Teddy (Tetsuya Ishida) was wonderful and so was the driver. They picked us up at our hotel in a comfortable minivan. They took us as close to Mt. Fuji as possible and the weather was gorgeous so we were able to see Mt. Fuij and take great pictures. The place he took us for lunch (special Hoto Noodle Soup) was in a high elevation with great views of mt. Fuji, and the noodle soup was delicious. We would highly recommend him and his driver.

1 Day Private Mt Fuji Tour (Charter) - English Speaking Driver
Saqib was very accommodating about our needs and was flexible with time. We went with his recommendation about the ninja show and the kids loved it and the restaurant was yummy. Mt Fuji refused to come out, however, but the tour was enjoyable despite that. Traffic was heavy on the return. Need to figure that in next time to avoid overtime charge. Anyway, it turned out to be a city night tour. Will book with this tour operator again.

When to Get There

Climbing season at Mt. Fuji falls in July and August when the weather is mildest and snow is limited. The mountain is at its most crowded during this time. If you're not climbing, clearer spring skies give the best views of Mt. Fuji's snow-capped peak.

Where to Find Great Views of Mt. Fuji

Lake Kawaguchi, one of the Mt. Fuji five lakes, provides some of the best unobstructed views of the mountain. Another popular viewing spot is Hakone, a resort town famous for its onsen, ryokan, and ropeway, where you'll find the best views. A walk on the beaches of Kamakura yields spectacular views of the mountain in the distance, and on a clear day, it's even possible to spot the peak from the top of Tokyo Sky Tree.
