Great tour guide except she did not speak English. I am sure it is a great tour for the locals and those who understands the Japanese. Trip to Mt. Asahidake was disappointing as the weather was bad with low clouds and crystallized snow. The visit to flower garden saved the day.

Hi thank you for contributing the review! Weather on Mt. Asahidake can be chilly, and we hope you kept warm while making the trip. This tour is not guided in English, so it may be not enough for non-Japanese speaking travelers. We hope to be able to provide more if possible but all English speaking guides for tours are difficult now. Thank you for the feedback! Best wishes for future travel!

This tour leaves from the bus station adjacent to the JR train station and the JR Tower Hotel. The guide on the bus speaks only Japanese and there is no translation...with the exception of a laminated sheet they pass for you to read with instructions to not talk on your cell

Hi, thank you very much for the review! We really appreciate your shared the tour experience in details with us; we felt somehow regretful for the instruction sheet or the guide's "sour" look but above all hope it was a not bad trip for you. This tour may be a bit more difficult than the other one you wrote about, especially the hiking part; other travelers who view this can definitely find a reference from your feedback and have a safe trip. Yes like you mentioned, weather there at the top of mountain is colder than city area- say in the middle of August can be between 15 to 18 degrees (65 Fahrenheit as said), preparing a jacket is such a good advice. Many thanks again for the review. Cheers!

It was a really good tour. Although I made the mistake of booking this tour- because it was only japanese speaking, the tour guide was very accommodating. It was good tour, my father and uncle has a very good time. The lunch was super filling. It was definitely a worthwhile tour
