... great trip ... Beautiful weather and very nice locations. The lake was nice but windy, shame it was just 1/2 hour. The location of the hill with te pagode was on my list for a long time ... very nice view of Fuju in every way. Just get good shoes and good condition. The ponds where also nice and beautiful location again ... rather had 2 hours to visit all 8, just mised one due to time. The Peace Park was ok, liked the valley of the Kannon statues and the garden ... had luck to see and hear the Monks pray. Only downpoint was traffic to Fuji and back. But the day made it ok.

Great fun tour that is well taken care of. Cheerful supervisor who tells a lot and gives you enough freedom. At the end you choose either shopping or going to the park. Great definitely recommended

Very nice trip. Central entry point in Shinjuku and on a beautiful day you will get beautiful views of Mt. Fuji! Definitely worth it and a must do if you want a side trip!

My Fuji was spine tingling amazing to see - the bus journey and the guide and the stops at various observation locations was all wonderful- thankyou for the great day :)

Great tour! Fortunately, the weather was sunny and I took nice pics
