  • 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.

  • Travelled in small bus.

  • the overall trip is fine. Unfortunately the day that we visit Mt Fuji was raining heavily so we are not able to have any chance to have a good view of the Mt Muji accept we can only have a little feel of the cold air and everything is just so cloudy.

    For Lunch - Pork Shabu Shabu we think that the time given is a little too rush and we should have a little more time so that we can really enjoy the hotpot!

  • it was very good that I could go to Mt fuj. Hakone and outlet. All you can eat Shabu-shabu lunch is very delicious. This is the best tour to get if you're a first timer in Japan

  • 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.
