What people are saying about Kantō Region

... great trip ... Beautiful weather and very nice locations. The lake was nice but windy, shame it was just 1/2 hour. The location of the hill with te pagode was on my list for a long time ... very nice view of Fuju in every way. Just get good shoes and good condition. The ponds where also nice and beautiful location again ... rather had 2 hours to visit all 8, just mised one due to time. The Peace Park was ok, liked the valley of the Kannon statues and the garden ... had luck to see and hear the Monks pray. Only downpoint was traffic to Fuji and back. But the day made it ok.

Tour was fantastic! Naow was a great guide - informative, kind, great English, very helpful and went out of her way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves such as by being our personal photographer!! We were very lucky with the weather and had great views - would recommend checking the weather in advance to booking. Ps. At the lake, get bento boxes or the like from a 7 eleven and enjoy the views of the mountain whilst eating!! Better than the restaurant!

This was a wonderful day trip with extraordinary sights of breathtaking Mt. Fugi. Even though our driver Was limited English speaking, (private van tour) he was kind and caring beyond belief.

My Fuji was spine tingling amazing to see - the bus journey and the guide and the stops at various observation locations was all wonderful- thankyou for the great day :)

The spots our guide took us to we're amazing. We took lots of pictures and hope to go back and see a few more.
