All year


Join me for a beautiful hiking trip in the Fuji Hakone Izu National Park and enjoy stunning views of the most iconic mountain in Japan: Mount Fuji.

Hakone is an area inside the Fuji Hakone Izu National Park. Only 100 kilometers away from Tokyo, it’s a very popular destination that offers several hiking trails and famous hot springs.

During this trip, we’ll follow a mountain trail through a forest that will lead us to Mount Kintoki. This place is considered one of the best panoramic view points of Mount Fuji and lake Ashi. However, seeing Mt Fuji depends on weather conditions and requires a clear day.

In the afternoon, the tour will continue with the visit of some sightseeing places. I was born and raised in Hakone and an experienced nationally Licensed English Tour Guide, so I can share with you the history, culture and stories of the area through my special sightseeing trip! Finally, we’ll relax at one of the best open air hot springs in the area.

Are you organizing a trip to Japan? Please contact me if you want to enjoy an incredible journey in the Fuji Hakone Izu National Park! I will be happy to share with you my favorite spots in this area I know so well.

I’m currently living here, so I can show you many good sightseeing spots upon your requests. Trekking and experiencing the beautiful nature of the national park, visiting special spots for sunrise/sunset of Mt.Fuji, and exploring secret hot-springs are some of the activities I offer.

I'm a licensed Tourist Guide that speaks English and a Mountain Guide Stage II by Japan Mountain Guides Association (JMGA). Besides, I have a license in Wilderness First Aid by the Wilderness Medical Associates Japan.

I spent 6 years in France and 5 years in U.S.A when I was a student so I know both Japanese and Western cultures well.

I’m looking forward to seeing you in Hakone!
