From Tokyo: Mt. Fuji Full-Day Sightseeing Trip
- Duration: 10 hours
Start your tour by walking through the busy streets of Shinjuku heading straight for Omoide Yokocho (literally “Memory Lane”) as your first stop. Omoide Yokocho is rightfully named as it is littered with rustic bars from the 1950s. Anyone of the older generation will feel as if they stepped back in time to the middle of the 20th century. Many of these bars still stay true to their roots, serving roasted giblets with beef and pork, which was a staple when food was scarce after World War II. From there you will make your way to Kabukicho, Asia’s largest, yet safest, red light district stopping at a kushikatsu stall for some authentic regional cuisine called kushikatsu (specialty food from Osaka of deep-fried skewered meat and vegetables). Each of the guests will get 4 kushikatsu and 1 drink. From here you will walk through the rest of Kabukicho, weaving in and out to give guests a sense o...
The food and history lessons were great! The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Only wish it had been easier to find the guide outside the station, but overall great experience!

If you're looking to escape the tourist hubs and get a real local insight into the neighbourhoods of Tokyo, Andy's bike tour is a must! I really enjoyed exploring the back streets and hearing about life in the different neighbourhoods we ventured through. The selection of food was both authentic and delicious, and the stop at the standing noodle bar for lunch was quite the experience. Andy does a great job making everyone feel welcome and connects to the group on a personal level. One of favourite memories from the trip, highly recommended!

An excellent walking tour that covered key elements of the history and culture behind specific cuisines, culinary techniques and establishment types. The insights were terrific and the food was outstanding!
See maybe one of the most touristic places in Tokyo is Asakusa. It's traditional town from 7th century and this certainly remains in the atmosphere with Sensoji Temple, the biggest temple in Tokyo, being here. Due to this, Asakusa is very famous and many tourists come out here in the daytime, but how about at nighttime? In the evening, very few foreigners walk around Asakusa and many Japanese people come out. After work, Japanese "salary-men" come to Asakusa to drink, laugh and chat. Let's drink local alcohol and eat delicious Izakaya food as locals with our professional and friendly guide! The menu is as follows： -Sake (Japanese rice wine) -Typical Izakaya foods and drinks (Japanese local food) -Japanese savory pancakes(Okonomiyaki or Monja yaki)

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.
