  • Enjoyed the trip.

  • The activity is recommended for families. We loved the cruise, the shabu shabu lunch, the trip going to the second station with the views of the majestic Mt. Fuji and of course the shopping at Gotemba. We did not go to the fifth station but then we went to Yeti ski park located at the second station. It was so much fun esp. for first timers as we all rode the sled. It was so nice to play and it felt that we were children once again. We took a lot of family pictures with the Mt. Fuji as our background. Highly recommended

    We were picked up late at the Gracery Hotel in Shinjuku and were asked to walk about three blocks before boarding the tourist bus. We were not told the reason why, as the guide who fetched us could barely speak and understand English. She was nice but not dressed for the yeti park adventure as she was only wearing pants, a blazer and dress shoes with heels. Our guess was she just pitched in for some tourist guide who did not show up that day She was with another guide, a younger one, but could also speak and understand so little English. Both of them are so disorganized since they do not have a banner nor signage that they could hold up so we would know where to locate them. This took so much of our time just waiting for others and cannot proceed with the activities, since some tourists do not show up on time and these guides have to look for them every time we have to board the bus again.

    But overall, it was FUN!

  • The day was cloudy which meant our itinerary changed. This tour was just a shopping centre trip. The only good thing about this was the Shabu-Shabu hot pot and the boat trip on Lake Ashi. The bus took us to a very dilapidated snow resort where the warmest place was in the shop. If you wanted a coffee then walk for 5 minutes in the bitterly cold weather. After we then went for 2 hours to a shopping centre! We didnt want to go shopping- we wanted to see Mount Fuji.
    We had no commentary from our guide along the way. I would NOT recommend this tour to anyone considering it cost 160AUD.

  • Overall an enjoyable trip, unfortunately the closure of Mt.Fuji 5th station wasn't expected by the organizer is a bit surprise to me. Are we the only group visiting Mt.Fuji 5th station in that week? There should be a bottle of mineral water given by the organizer unfortunately perhaps everyone too excited and forget about it.

  • It is only this cource that can go to Hakone pirates ship,Mt fuji new 5th station and Gotemba outlet, my recommendation !

  • Mt.fuji,hakone,outlet,
    This tour only to go to this three spots .

  • I enjoyed the tour and we could see Mt. Fuji as the weather was good

  • I am satisfied with the tour, as the content is rich enough.
    I am able to went to Mt. Fuji, Hakone and outlet in just one day, which I think only this tour can make it like this!
    Because I can not speak Japanese, so I was a little nervous.
    But there was no problem at all, as the guide has an i-pad for translation service. An interpreter will come out on the screen of i-pad, which is very efficient.

  • The trip itself was great. Here are the things to remember while going on this trip.
    The pick up point was far from the Shinkunju station which is huge and complicated and involved considerable walking distance.
    The tour guides had no knowledge of English and most of the communication was done through an iPad. On the day of the tour,
    there was rain and it was foggy. So we could not see anything of Mt. Fuji, nothing at all. The Gotemba Premium Outlets were not
    any attraction to tourists from the USA and prices were not cheap either. We still enjoyed the trip though.

  • I booked this tour because of the rave reviews, especially where it stated that the tour guides spoke English.
    First of all, no one spoke English. They had interpreters on an iPad and they didn't even speak English very well which meant that we couldn't even ask our guide any questions. I booked the pirate ship tour because I thought it would be more enjoyable for my 8 year old granddaughter. The ride was maybe 20 minutes and we had to stand because there were not enough seats. There was another room full of seats available for an additional 5 per person.
    During the lunch portion of the tour, the guides took us to a buffet style restaurant where you cooked your own food at your table. We had no idea and only were able to figure that out by watching other people in the restaurant. All of the food was labeled in Japanese and we were basically lost because our tour guides could not help us.
    We were unable to see Mt. Fuji due to the fog, which was not their fault. We did get some pictures though.
    The outlet mall was disappointing. None of the stores offered any Mt. Fuji souvenirs. Instead, they were just normal stores that you could find at any mall in the US. I would not recommend this trip.
