What people are saying about Shizuoka Prefecture

I enjoyed on this activity as the trip was smooth and weather is perfect. I saw a lot of picturesque view. The group is also very considerate unlike my other experience on a group tour, most of the time we wait for late comers. In addition the tour guide is very accommodating and funny . thanks for great experience Domo Arigato

Pirate ship was pretty cool, though unfortunately it was too foggy that day to see Mt. Fuji. Very much enjoyed hot springs at Hakone. Ride back took 3 hours due to traffic so don't count on being back in Tokyo on time. Tour guide was very nice.

Excellent service which allows you to have a wide range of landscapes and activities I highly recommend you

Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Stunning sights, great food and good options for onsen and shopping.

Excellent day trip - glad we chose the private onsen option, the onsen room was facing Mt Fuji
