  • Very disappointed with this tour and not recommend this tour to any one. First of all the tour guide spoke no English which made the entire tour very frustrating. Ever one on this tour were English speaking . The guide tried to use video translation which worked a few times but it definitely not the same as having an English speaking guide. There was no introduction , we don't even know her name. We could have done this trip all on our own without the guide.
    Secondly, when advertising a tour with a visit to Mt Fuji 5th Station, You need to specify WHICH 5th station is being visited, as there are many. The Mount Fuji 5TH station that we stopped at was a visit to a PARKING LOT with a hiking trail. It should have been name a Hiking trip. OK, Mt Fuji was yes behind the clouds but that is not what I expected. Let me clarify, we visit Mt Fuji 5th station 2 years ago with a tour that Viator offered and it was an excellent tour. This time we though we would try a different Mt Fuji 5th station tour but to our surprise it was not worth it. Again as the guide spoke no English, we were basically on our own. The Pirate ship ride was just a ferry ride, again we could have done this on our own. The Shopping trip was OK ...a shopping trip. The only good thing about this tour was the buffet lunch at there restaurant.
    Definitely a tour not worth the time or money.

  • Excellent Guides!

  • This tour was amazing!

  • Great Shabu-Shabu Buffet Lunch!
    Udon, Ramen, Curry are also available, really fill up my stomach.
    Dessert buffet was also great.

  • I was a vegetarian, so I cannot eat meat.
    But I notified the staff by e-mail before reservation so I got my menu changed.

  • It is cheaper and easier to join the bus tour than checking all the stuff by myself.
    It is highly recommended! I am happy to see Mt. Fuji here.
    I also enjoyed shopping at the outlets.

  • A day trip going to Mt. Fuji, Hakone Pirate Ship and Gotemba Premium Outlets!
    I think the content of the tour is rich. Only this tour has such offer in Japan. I was satisfied very much.

  • I think this tour is a wonderful tour that can take you to many great sightseeing spots efficiently within a day.
    The bus which I had ride on was a relaxing large bus.
    The scenery from the Hakone pirate ship was awesome, I am really satisfied with this sightseeing spot.
    After that you can have a all-you-can-eat pork shabu-shabu hotpot as lunch! There are Udon noodles and other vegetables as well. Ice-cream and soft drinks are available, it was really good!
    Besides, I also went to the Mt.Fuji New 5th Station and I was able to see a wonderful scenery here!
    Finally I also went to Gotemba Premium Outlets and enjoyed shopping for a while. Mt. Fuji can also be seen here just nearby.
    I think other tour suppliers do not offer such rich content one day tour as this one, therefore I would like to recommend this one to everyone.

  • This day trip is highly recommended!
    Gathering location is near Shinjuku station, which is extremely convenient.
    The tour bus and guide bring us to have sightseeing in Mt. Fuji and Hakone directly, and of course back to Shinjuku station after the tour.
    Therefore we can join with no worry and no need to plan in advance. I will still join other tours next time.

  • A lot of time spent on the bus, the 2 Japanese tour guides did not say a single word , lunch was an hour late(because restaurant wasn and #39;t ready) and because of that , they announced that there was only an hour left for the Gotemba outlets. The worst tour ever which is sad bec we love Japan.
