An indelible impression was made by Mount Fuji and everything that was connected with it, a walk along the lake, a funicular on this sunny day it was clearly visible from everywhere and from all angles it looked majestic. On the volcano, they tried local delicacies that are offered to tourists and, well-fed and satisfied, went shopping in Gotemba, the shopaholic has where to hang himself, time flew by. The tour left a very pleasant impression, despite the fact that we spoke different languages with our guide, we did not get lost and enjoyed the splendor of Fuji.

We were very lucky to be able to see Mount Fuji since according to statistics it can only be seen 80 days a year. The guide was super good in his explanations and comments. I believe that in the advertising of the tour it is necessary to warn that you should wear mountain clothing (hat, gloves, scarf and a good jacket) to withstand the strong gusts that occur in the viewpoint. A visit to the mall seems unnecessary.

absolutely LOVED the tour! Got to see so much of the main tourist attractions in one day and was back in Shinjuku by 6pm! would recommend 100%

The day trip was perfect, could also see Mount Fuji very well

Very punctual in all activities and very friendly guide
