awesome Mt Fuji

This was an amazing trip. Our guide spoke great English and Japanese. The highlight was him asking the maiden to ask the priest to give us a blessing, which I was able to pass onto my son. His lunch selection was great. We loved the railway and boat ride.
Excellent tour. Our guide, Silvia...

Excellent tour. Our guide, Silvia, was very knowledgable and our meeting with the priest at the Sengen Shrine was amazing.

Meg was our guide, and she is terrific. The day was cold, snowy/rainy, and very overcast, so we thought there was no chance we would get to see Mt. Fuji. With a little patience, however, we did get a peek from station 4, and then another peek from a nearby crafts village. Because it is a private tour, there is flexibility in what you do and how much time you spend doing it. That flexibility is especially helpful when the weather is not cooperating, as was the case with us. Meg is such a pleasant tour guide, and we felt entirely comfortable expressing our thoughts on different activities we could do. FYI, we are a family of four, 2 parents and two teenagers, and everyone had a great time.

This tour was one of the highlights of an amazing vacation.Although it is a longish day every moment was special.We felt so well cared for by both our guide and our driver in The Mt Fuji area.The train ride was fun and sometimes scenic during which our amazing guide Sylvia gave us history and information that enhanced the trip greatly.The mountain itself was spectacular and we lucked out with perfect weather.The views were amazing.My only comment is that the promised meeting with the monk was nothing like it was described in the brochure.Minor but worth noting.Although it was disappointing it in no way deterred from an amazing day that our incredible guide Sylvia provided for us.

The exclusive visit with priests did not go as expected. I was expecting some private moments with a priest. Yet I was only offered to take part in a ceremony. Disappointed, but the overall experience is great.
