Several days of trekking and cultural discoveries around Mount Fuji, in Kamakura, Hakone, Izu, Minobu and Misaka, with a JMGA certified mountain guide.
May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep
Join me for a trip around the most beautiful places for trekking in Honshu, the main island of Japan. We’ll be traversing many spots near Mount Fuji (3776 m), like Kamakura, Hakone, Izu, Minobu and Misaka.
These breathtaking landscapes have inspired the Ukiyo-e, the traditional japanese paintings, realized by Katsushika Hokusai.
Each day we’ll walk from 4 to 6 hours, and go from one place to another by train or car. This will let us to enjoy the best places of this area only in a few days.
Besides, we can adapt the program according to the available time you have in Japan. Actually, we can also mix this tour with the ascent of Mount Fuji.
Mount Fuji area is probably one of the most beautiful places of Japan. I strongly recommend you to go there if you have few days to spent near Tokyo. Furthermore, leaving with a Japanese guide will enable you to visit the right spots and learn about our culture.
If you are interested in this adventure adventure that mixes hiking and cultural sightseeing, please contact me. It will be my pleasure to guide and take care of you during this short trip.

Jun is an outstanding guide, a true expert in his field. He was attentive to our needs and desires and very ably provided us with a fantastic experience skiing in the Asahikawa area backcountry. I will book other trips with him and highly recommend him to others!
We had a fantastic and unforgettable trip to the top of Mt. Yotei with Jun-san. He was very friendly, helpful and also flexible. Hope to do another trip with him soon!

The weather was perfect and I trekked according to my plan. Guide Jun is patient and knowledgeable.
Amazing experience. Took 5hrs to summit. Cloudy and little wind made it easier. Skies opened up 100M from the top. We summited and then we skied fresh powder into the crater. Well worth it.
We had an excellent time hiking up to the summit of Mt Kurodake. Jun gave us a good intro to the flora and fauna on the way up and regaled us with stories all the way up. He set a pace suitable for us and ensured our safety throughout. Jun comes highly recommended!
The trip was great. The views are extrodinary.
Wow what a Tour! Jun guided us perfectly, we made it to the top of yotei. An Incredible experience!
Jun Is An excellent and cheerful guide who will help you find the skiing you want what ever your level

Jun was an excellent guide! He took us to some fantastic tree skiing on Yotei and we got to do a few laps since the weather did not allow us to summit. We had a really great trip and would highly recommend Jun as a guide.
Jun did an incredible job guiding us through Daisetsuzan National Park. He was attentive, friendly and courteous. His knowledge of the local flora, fauna, and landscape was superb (that rock garden in particular left a deep impression on me). His cooking was superb. And, we felt like we experienced aspects of the Japanese outdoors and Japanese culture that are very hard to reach.

It was a great experience and with Jun we had a fabulous guide. We hope he will be a guide for much longer to join him again. Thanks a lot Jun, どもありがとうございます
Jun is a responsible and reliable guide. He is also knowledgeable on the local flora and fauna and managed to show us quite a few interesting alpine flowers, birds and animals. He is kind and helpful and converses well in English. I will not hesitate to recommend him to any anyone needing an English speaking guide in Japan.
Thanks to www.explore-share.com, we added a hiking to Mount Fuji to our trip in Japan. We found Jun, our guide through explore-share and had a great time going to the top of Mount Fuji and then hiking in Hakone. This was a clear highlight of our all trip and we would not have done it if explore-share had not facilitated finding a guide like they did.
Really enjoyed the experience of skiing in Hokkaido. Loved the Onsens after the skiing and for me the highlight of the trip was staying in the Riokan for 4 nights and being able to ski in and out of our delightful lodging. Jun was truly adorable and extremely competent. Always good natured and ready to help and make our stay enjoyable. Unfortunately my japanese is limited but Jun made a great effort to communicate in English and made himself understood. A great trip and a big thank you to Jun who organised everything smoothly with no stress.

A discovery of a new country, a very nice guide, very different food - with all the trimmings! The transfers in mini bus are longer than we are used to. As an older couple, some of the days are a bit too long. But the choice of 3 different ski areas, many onsens (hot bathes) after each ski day, and the willingness of Jun to accommodate our wishes helped us to fully enjoy this experience. One person had the flu, and that hampered our style a bit, otherwise, a fun experience! An incredible light deep snow. Very friendly people. A worthwhile adventure. Take 5 days in Tokyo and Kyoto before, like we did, to overcome jet-lag. Makes it so much nicer!
It was an amazing experience to see the Mt Fuji from different sides and to imagine how the great painter Hokusai got his inspiration! The walking days were never too long and well adjusted to the capacity of the group. The accomodation was very comfortable and the food well adapted to the trekking. Our guide Jun is very professional and make you feeling safe. He was always making sure that everybody is fine and enjoy the journey. I am looking for to go again with Jun in Hokkaido next February for a touring ski tour!
