    Really well organised trip which visited really excellent locations at a bargain price. Fuji views were awesome. We were left in no doubt as to what time to meet back at the mini bus too during stops. I would suggest though dropping the trip to the shopping outlet as it meant that those of us who went to the peace shrine instead had less time there and it was rushed. It also took nearly four hours to get back to Tokyo, which was a shame. This was caused by a car accident, so it was out of anyone's control.

What people are saying about Shinjuku City

Good value for money. We were very lucky to have an excellent full view of Mt Fuji the entire day. Among the places we went to Arakurayama Sengen Park was the best, Lake Kawaguchi came second, but it was a little too much time given to that place. Guide Ai was very polite; they provided disinfectant at the bus, which was very appropriate as I was a little nervous about going on a bus trip at the time of an outbreak. They changed the last stop to another village because the one on the original itinerary was temporarily closed. Overall it felt a little too long for such an easy tour, but I was satisfied thanks to great weather and perfect views of Mt Fuji.

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!

It was an amazing one day trip from Tokyo to see the places around Mt.Fuji. especially the view near lake Kawaguchiko was amazing. it was a clear sunny day for us and the view was really good. Our tour guide was really helpful in coordinating the whole trip and was really helpful in giving us lots of information during the entire trip.

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.

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.
