Memories to last a lifetime!
Nov 2019
Thank you Taka for the amazing tour of the Kawaguchiko area! You made our tour so unforgettable with special attention to all our needs and tailoring the tour to suit our interests and the weather (foggy and wet). Although it was not a day for seeing even a glimpse of Mt Fuji, we were treated to beautiful sights and experiences that will live in my memories forever. You can see how much Taka loves his job and the places he shares with his customers. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Five Lakes region and I would not hesitate to book with Taka again in the future! Good Luck Taka and hope to see you again!

The valuable tour by Taka San
Mar 2020
We went to many secret places with cannot be reached by public transports. Some places we really need a local driver such as Aokigahara Forest and Mount Fuji View Point. Even though some places can be reached by public transports, we might not understand the culture and history in detail due to lack of strong Japanese communication with local people and we cannot read Kanji. Therefore, Taka San is necessary and he did a great job to explain to us. Besides this, his hospitality is amazing, he try to entertain us and help us everything. If we have an opportunity to bring our family to travel to Mt Fuji area again, we will definitely use this private tour.

Notes : Please visit the website hokuroku-works for more detail of the tour, and you can choose more options of the tour than tripadvisor.

The best tour!
We had an amazing tour around the area and Taka is a great guide! He accommodated all of our wishes and had a very good tour planned. He has great knowledge about the area and the history and he knows all the good spots. We have only good things to say about our tour!

We also wanted to visit a ryokan but wasn’t sure which one. Taka was very helpful and went the ekstra mile to give us all of his best recommendations - both in relation to ryokans, food and attractions.

Don’t hesitate to book this tour. You won’t be disappointed!

The best Mt. Fuji Tour you can get
Feb 2020 • Family
We decided for the private Mt. Fuji Tour due to the short time we had in Kawaguchiko. And it was the best choice we could have made.

Taka picked us up from our Hotel and was from the very beginning extremely friendly and helpful. He was very attentive and asked what we would like to do and recommend what we could do accordingly to our wishes.
He brought us to the best spots to see the Mt. Fuji and we were able to take great pictures. We were able to experience the shrine culture and the nature around the Mt. Fuji. And experienced as well the history of the area.

Furthermore we were able to ask Taka all our questions. Not only about the Mt. Fuji but also about the japanese culture in general.

We were so happy with the 2 hour tour with him that we asked if he would be available for 2 more hours. Even though it was on a short notice he agreed and we were able to see even more.

For a short break he took us to a wonderful and real japanese lunch place where we were able to enjoy a wonderful lunch.

We can just highly recommend this private Tour to anyone who really wants to experience the Mt. Fuji.

BEST TOUR for Mt Fuji!!!
Feb 2020
Taka is an amazing guide, and if you are going to see Mt. Fuji I would highly recommend taking this tour. We had wanted to view Mt. Fuji at a particular spot which we requested, and he was able to take us there as well as to other fantastic viewpoints we wouldn't have known about if he hadn't shown us. He also brought us to a beautiful waterfall and showed us the caves in the forest.

He's completely fluent in English and the whole tour felt very personable. Taka shared a lot of local insights with us, both on the history and culture of the area as well as personal stories of the town. It is clear that he truly loves the area and wants to share the beauty of it with others from around the world.

***** HOW GREAT TAKA REALLY IS: *****

My friend and I had mentioned during the tour that we were planning on visiting the new fish market the next day. After the tour was over, Taka not only sent us the retouched photos super fast, he actually helped us check the opening times for the fish market and let us know that it was closed the next day, and gave us many other recommended places to visit in Tokyo instead!!

Taka really goes the extra mile to not only be a fantastic guide, but also an awesome new friend. If I were you, I wouldn't bother looking for other tours, just choose this one because it's the best.

Highlight of our trip to Japan! Taka is the best! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Dec 2019
If you are going to Japan, then you have to book this tour with Taka. My family was hesitant about traveling to Fuji since we didn't know what to expect. You have to go on this tour, or your trip is not complete. Fuji is a gorgeous area, but if you don't have a guide you will not be able to get around easily. Also, if you go by yourself you will end up going to overpopulated, generic tourist spots. You need a local. You need an English-speaking guide. You need comfortable transportation. You need someone to take your pictures. You want the best spots. TAKA DOES ALL OF THIS! We have been all over the world, and have seen many tour guides. TAKA IS SIMPLY THE BEST! He will pick you up right at the train station, and then make a custom tour for you. He knows all the local spots. Why go to that generic spot where all the tourists are, when you go to a peaceful lake or local area and get a better picture of Fuji? Also, most google searches tell you to go to the ice cave or bat cave. Nope. Go to the Dragon Cave. Taka will take you there. This was our favorite part of Tokyo. The only bad part - we couldn't take Taka home with us :(

Fluent English speaking guided tour Mt Fuji
Taka was wonderful the tour was perfect for our needs. He drove 4 of us around the beautiful area of Fuji five lakes. I don’t enjoy bus tours where you can only go where they take you.
Taka took us off to places where the tour buses can’t go.
Highly recommended! Affordable and informative with very good English.
Book early to avoid disappointment.

Amazing Tour
Jan 2020 • Couples
Taka-san took us to some very beautiful locations around the Fuji area. All with great views and felt less touristy since it was not crowded at all. He was very knowledgeable and great fun. We highly recommend this tour package.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED GUIDE
We would like to thank Mr Taka for making our visit to the Kawaguchiko area memorable. Our guide is passionate about the place, professional, friendly and accomodating. We had a few lakes that we specifically wanted to see, and he made our trip more enriching by getting us to the less trodden spots that offered scenic panoramic views and also showed us other very specific unique features. He shared with us about Japanese language and culture and life in Japan. He is very easy to get along with and makes his guests feel very comfortable talking with him. We could not have experiences the lakes area like this if we took the tour bus routes. We saw the charm of the lakes area and the majesty of Mt Fuji throughout that clear morning. Knowing that we were headed back to Tokyo, our guide suggested what other places to visit and things to do, and helped us with common phrases we could use :) . We left knowing that if we came again, we would want him as our guide as well. We wish Mr Taka and his family the very best !
