A good tour is only half as good as your guide so we were very fortunate to have the guide that we did. She was new to the job but knowledgeable, passionate about she is doing for a living and offered many factoids about the places we visited.
The weather conditions were perfect on the way to and on arrival to Fuji-san. We were able to see the peak in all its glory and to take myriads of photos which were crystal clear. The stay on the fifth station could have been longer but it was definitely not a deal breaker for me.
The coach was incredibly clean and we made frequent stops for food and toilet breaks. The driver was an expert and not once did I feel we were in any kind of danger.
Hakone and lake Ashi are breathtaking and the view from the mountain is absolutely incredible. If you are lucky, you can see Mt. Fuji in the background so it's another great opportunity for taking photos.
All in all, a wonderful experience for a very well organised tour!
