Mt. Fuji, Lake Kawaguchi and Oshino Ninja Village Bus Tour from Tokyo

Guide was really nice!

Reviewed by: Queensland, 2017/08/12

Although it took almost double time to get to the first destination because the day we attended tour was just before holiday and everyone went their hometown, the guide Hiroshi-san was entertaining us and taught us many aspects of Japan!
That was shame that at some destination we had only a half of normal time, so we had to rush seeing the places, but that's due to the traffic jam and couldn't be helped.
Thanks to guide's tip, we were able to get a good blueberry ice cream!

Great Trip

Reviewed by: Ailis Hughes, 2017/07/30

Really great tour. We got picked up on time from a hotel near to where we were staying which was very handy and well organised. Our guide, Levin, had perfect English, was very helpful and informative and made the tour extremely enjoyable. There were plenty of break stops along the way and the bus was very comfortable. Due to unforeseen traffic our itinerary changed however this was handled really well and we still got to make each stop as planned. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great but Levin still made each stop fun and interesting. The lunch provided was excellent food and we got to experience the traditional Japanese culture. We didn't have much expectations for the 4D experience but it was actually brilliant and we really enjoyed it. Overall it was a really great trip and we would highly recommend it to anyone who's thinking of doing the Mount Fuji tour.

Fun tour great day trip

Reviewed by: Emily , 2017/07/27

Booked this tour in the hope to see Mt. Fuji. Every destination point you visit will have advantage points to see Mt.Fuji. The only thing you need is good weather and clear visibility! This sadly isn't guaranteed but what you can expect is a great tour Leader, smooth bus journey to and from each destination and a fun day out. Our tour Leader Levin was really funny and charming. He told us information about Mt.Fuji, Japanese culture and the language. Definitely made the trip!

Great tour of Mt. Fuji

Reviewed by: Anders Reimer, 2017/07/03

My girlfriend and I were very happy about the tour of Mt. Fuji, which also took us to a beautiful lake, a ninja village and another nice little village where we could fill our bottles with natural Mt. Fuji water. We booked a tour, because it seemed a hassle getting to the mountain ourselves. Luckily for us we found this company. The guides spoke english and were very friendly. The bus ride was comfortable. We were lucky that the weather was clear and sunny. We don't regret a thing booking from this company.

best day in tokyo so far!

Reviewed by: Marco Cossu, 2017/07/02

This was 100% worth more than the cost, you see loads of different views and stores, great time to get all your souvenirs as i was struggling to find any good ones in the 5 days i have been here.
Theres loads of different stops at landmarks where you can get all sorts of different food, ice cream (blueberry!!) which is very nice. The ninja village and the 4d experience was the highlight of me and my friends trip, the food was a buffet of all sorts of food which as very nice and can eat till your belly pops and then we ent to the ninja garden to do ninja activities where you can participate in; trick room which is like an indoor puzzle, ninja training (forgot the name) where you either use bow and arrow, blowdart or shurikens to hit wooden targets, or a ninja obstacle course. btw it costs 400-500 yen to participate and i only know if you win a price for the training event.

we participated in throwing real shurikens and won plastic ninja shurikens (which is the lowest score) but you can win all sorts of different prizes depending on your score.
Also the 4d experience literally blew our minds because we didnt think highly of it but i dont ant to say too much because it will take from the experience but it was a very good day out, the best so far in the time that i have been here.

ps the guide and driver are very friendly

Mt Fuji Day Tour

Reviewed by: Ruth, 2017/06/14

We originally book our tour on a Thursday but checked the weather the day before and it was rainy so we called and changed it to Friday, customers service was nice and helpful.
We were at the designated pick up point by 8am. Our tour guide Levin was on time. He was nice and funny. He's knowledgeable and even taught us basic Japanese words/phrases. Our first stop was Lake Kawaguchi. It was still early so we didnt get to see the full view of Mt Fuji and reflection against the lake as it was a bit cloudy. Levin recommended to try the blueberry soft cream. 'Twas delicious! Next stop was Oshino Hakkai where we strolled through the village and saw 8 ponds, and this time we saw Mt Fuji clearly. It was beautiful. Almost lunch time and we headed to our third spot, the Ninja Village. We had Japanese-style food for lunch. Food was delish! Then off to our fourth stop, Mt Fuji Fifth Station. We got up close to Mt Fuji. We enjoyed the views and the little shrine. However it was freezing cold. We didnt stay there for long as we had the 4D Fuji Airways schedule. This was one of the best 4D's we've seen as it was so realistic.Really enjoyed it! We headed home and got dropped off at Shinjuku station as our last stop.
Over all it was an amazing experience!

Mount Fuji Tour

Reviewed by: Livia, 2017/06/06

We had a great day at the Mount Fuji. The pick up was on time at the estimated point. The tour was good organized and our friendly guide Levin explained everything at least twice ;-)
The first stop at the Lake Kawaguchi-ko was a good break for a blueberry soft-ice, which Levin recommended us and which was really tasty. Unfortunately we couldn't see the Mt. Fuji from there, because the Mountain was in the clouds. Oshino Hakkai with it's ponds was touristic, but nice. We took the path next to the small river back to the bus, which was really nice! The lunch at Oshino Ninja Village was excellent and the garden is really beautiful! We whished we could spend a little more time there. On the fifth station of the Mt. Fuji we were finally lucky to see the top of the mountain. The last stop, the Fuji Airways was pretty cool, so we were able to see the mountain in different seasons and special sceneries.
I would recommend the trip to see something more than Tokyo, but go sure that you'll have good weather conditions to see the mountain in all it's beauty. It's worth a visit!

Mt. Fuji, Lake Kawaguchi and Oshino Ninja Village Bus Tour from Tokyo with Lunch

Reviewed by: Joo, 2017/05/29

I like this tour very much. In the morning, I had a hiccup to find out the meeting place and immediately called the emergency line. She asked me to get a taxi and explained the details to the taxi driver on how to go the meeting place so that we did not miss the trip.
Our tour guide was Kim and he was very friendly and helpful. During on the way to Mt Fuji, Kim explained about the formation of Mt Fuji and a little bit about Japanese culture especially about the differences between shrine and temple.
Our first stop was Lake Kawaguchi-ko and we had opportunity to taste the blueberry soft ice-cream. Unfortunately we was not able to view clearly at Mt Fuji as it was covered by cloud. Then we went to the 8 ponds in Oshino Hakkai and it was a traditional Japanese village. I heard a lot about the wonder of Mt Fuji water and took the first chance to drink a youthful Mt Fuji water.
Our next stop was a ninja village where we had Japanese style lunch. After the lunch, we visited Japanese Garden and took a few picture of very beautiful flowers in blossoms as we had missed Sakura flower session in Tokyo. After that, the most important place to visit is the 5th station of Mt Fuji. It is a fantastic and beautiful. Well! It is worth the trip.
We did not expect much on the last stop on the 4d movie simulation on Mt Fuji. But It is very real and nice. We wish we could go the second view of it.
We strongly recommend for this tour.

My Fuji

Reviewed by: Kim, 2017/05/21

It was amazing to see everything! However it was really rushed, by the time you finished the toilet break you had to quickly walk around and get photos, than straight back on the bus to the next place.
