What To Expect

Meet up with your private guide at Kawaguchiko Station in the morning. Depending on the itinerary you’ve arranged for the day your exploration could take you in any number of directions.

Head to Mt. Kachikachi Ropeway for a 1.5-hour visit, or enjoy the views of Japan’s most famous mountain at the Mt. Fuji Viewdeck. You might even head to the idyllic Aokigahara Forest, where you can check out the interior of a 1,100-year-old ice cave (3 hours), or stop by a sake brewery, where you can take a closer look at the process of producing this Japanese-style spirit from pure melted water from Mt. Fuji. At some point you’ll also stop for a traditional Japanese lunch (own expense, 1-hour).

An alternative itinerary offers some additional opportunities. On this second private tour schedule you’ll get to choose among attractions like Kawaguchi Lake, Oishi Park (1.5 hours), or Kuroda Itchiku Kimono Museum (1 hour). There’s also Arakura Sengen Shrine, home to Chureito pagoda (2.5 hours). Whatever option you choose, you’ll be dropped off back at Kawaguchiko Station in the late afternoon.

Best day in Mt. Fuji 🗻
Prachi_I, June 2023
We had the best day exploring around Mt Fuji! Yumiko was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed a lot! She customized the tour with our needs and that was perfect for us! Thank you Yumiko!
Great tour; outstanding guide
DEAN_B, May 2023
Yumiko was an excellent guide with great knowledge and insight of the area and its history. She knows the best places to eat, and took us to a place for local Hoto soup. Very attentive and flexible and showed us several nature sights off the beaten path. Was very accommodating and gave great advice and assistance for the following day. Highly recommended!
A perfect day in the Mt. Fuji area
Mark_H, May 2023
Our day with Yumiko-san was absolutely wonderful! We experienced so many incredible things: Aokigihara forest, the Narusawa Ice/Wind caves, corn ice cream, the world-class Kimono museum, delicious Hoto noodles and sake tasting. It was a day we will never forget. We had a blast with Yumiko-san. Her English is excellent and she taught us so many things about Mt. Fuji. We will definitely do this tour again on our next trip to Japan!
