Chris is fantastic and you are going to love his tours of Fuji Five Lakes. He’s a local and he is going to show you all the amazing things you didn’t know you wanted to see. Just trust Chris and he will let the group set the pace. We went with a 2.5 year old and Chris showed infinite patience. He has a great spirit and when it was over, we felt like we were saying farewell to a friend.

Chris is really a great guy. He and his tour are everything you are looking for to see what the area is truly about: the nature, the breathtaking sights, smells, and sounds, and above all, the wonderful people. There is no better way to spend a day in natural Japan.

My husband and I wanted to have a nice get away from Tokyo, and we happened to meet Chris on our last day in Fujikawaguchiko. He was very nice, knew a lot about the area, kept us entertained, and took us to the best burger spot we’ve ever been to in Japan. He took us to the best spots and all the areas were gorgeous. Chris if you read this message, Ricardo and I will definitely be back the end of December! Hope to see you and your wife! 😊

Aja, I appreciate your kind review. Such fine weather on an Autumn Day with lovely people. Special. Waiting here at the mountain base for your return and some longer walks in the Forest of Trees. The ice stalactites and stalagmites will be spectacular when we visit some of my secret caves in December. Until then. Chris

I met Chris by chance (lucky me) near Kawaguchi ko train station and the result was to spend quality time seeing some of the best of the 5 lakes area. We gained more ground, views, and experiences in the 4 hours I had, than I could have in 4 days.
Immersed in earthly nature, spiritual nature, and human nature. Great value for my yen. Chris is very knowledgeable, intelligent, interesting, and friendly guy. Thoroughly recommended.

Hey Chris, as my return train moved away I got some images of 'Fuji san' peak as the cloud shifted enough, and just in time for me.

Kenny, Memorable hours in good company. Thanks for the kind words. Later, reviewing the day, I remarked; this is someone I hope visits again. Really enjoyed sharing nature and talking with you, and pleased Fuji san revealed herself at the right moments. Come back and explore more. Chris

I'm normally skeptical about travel guides and hesitant to use them but Chris was completely out of the ordinary. Not only did he take us to some local, little known spots around the area, we also met his local friends who happen to own a great little restaurant and market, our two year old adored him, and he made us feel like we'd known him for a long time. Strongly recommend him if you're up in the area.

Chris was a spectacular guide in this area, he knew a lot of the local history and culture behind all the shrines, forests, restaurants, and lakes that he brought my friend and I to. Being an only English speaking tourist it was a great comfort to have someone with my native language, who can also interact with the locals(as he is one) and be driven around in comfort. Definitely will do another tour when I decide to come back to the area!!!

Josh, Thank you for sharing a fine day around the Lakes and Mountains and your kind review. The air was especially fresh that day around Kawaguchiko and Saiko and the Sea of Trees extra peaceful. I hope you will come back soon to explore more. All the best. Chris

I met Chris by chance as I was going around Kawaguchiko and he hooked us up in a minute by his energetic and very alive presence.

He brought us all around the area, in the forests, the Lake, temples and shrines and, as a great lover of Nature it all felt like a perfect alignement.
His guiding opened the doors to the real and deep experience of the Fujigoko area, to an extent that is even a Spiritual lesson to me 🙏

Now, everytime I go there I see Chris again, and visiting around without him has a totally different taste.
His passion and energy makes the whole experience so much more profound and intimate. He is like an extension of the Spirit of the place, and a great guide, a highway to the most soulful experience of this unbelivable place.

Beyond recommandation!

See you next time again 🙏

My Above the Clouds hike is one you would surely enjoy. All the best. Chris

A long time resident of the Fuji five lakes area, Chris is a personable and generous guide to the area. He provided a wealth of information on local history, culture, ecology and geology as he took us around the lakes, mountain valleys, and local sites including a historic shrine, nearby waterfall, and the Dragon Cave. We particularly appreciated his eye-opening tour of the Aokigahara Sea of Trees area -- sometimes referred to in English as the "suicide forest." Chris showed us that it was so much more than that and drew our attention to the unique ecology of a dense forest shallowly rooted into hardened lava.

Part of the pleasure of travelling with Chris is the chance encounters with local people along the way -- it feels a bit like travelling with a celebrity. As Chris is a longtime resident and seems to know almost everybody, the tour was a great opportunity to meet others and gain a sense of the local community.

Chris came equipped with fold-up chairs to soak in views of Mt. Fuji from various vantage points, as well as binoculars and hiking boots of all sizes. The van is spacious, had plenty of room for our belongings, and he drove us to our hotel when the tour was finished.

Overall, the tour was excellent and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Without Chris as our guide, we surely would not have been able to locate or navigate to many of these unique sites.

We are looking forward to returning for an Autumn tour of the changing leaves!

D & Y, Your review of our tour is really nice and thoughtful. Good memories of our time together. Thank you for such kind words, good conversation, and interest in the local scene and Culture. My secret cave with the last of Winters stalagmites was great to share with you. See you this Autumn. All the best. Chris
