Tony was an exceptional guide for the day. We had planned and booked for a specific day.

I can’t say I have ever had that happen! He picked us up in a very comfortable vehicle which made the day’s travel very easy.

His insight about the area and the history was tremendous and added gre ..read more

This is our first trip to Mt Fuji. We were there with 2 families with children and stayed in Hakone for 2 nights. On the first day, we visited the Hakone shrine and took a battleship cruise in Lake Ashi. The surrounding scenery was serene and awe-inspiring. On the second day, we visited a ski resort at Mt Fuji.
