Mt. Fuji and Outlet Shopping Tour
My guests of the day were a group of three from Florida, USA. One of my guests was a repeat guest, and he had visited Japan the previous July with his wife. This time, he was visiting Japan with his mother and his mother’s friend. My guest sent me an email three weeks before coming and said he would like to show his mother Mt. Fuji.
After our delightful reunion at my guests’ hotel, we headed to Mt. Fuji. My guests enjoyed the 3D Mt. Fuji map, the world heritage magazines as well as the snacks during the ride. I explained some details to my guests about the local specialties and the maglev train testing facility in the area.
First, we visited the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center, and my guests bought many local gifts there. Then I took my guest to the Mt. Fuji fifth station. I brought postcards for my guests, and they mailed them out to their family and friends from the mountain. I gave my guests the unique gift of wooden postcards as well.
After the quick visit to the fifth station of the mountain, we headed to Lake Kawaguchiko. We had a great photo session by the Lake, with the beautiful mountain in the background. We also took some funny photos together with silly hats, of course!
For our last stop, we went to the Gotemba Premium Outlets. My guests had some private shopping time there. Then we headed back to Tokyo. It made me glad to hear that my guests felt very satisfied after the tour. I thanked my guests for the fun day and wished them safe travels for the rest of their trip.
