    Explore Aokigahara, the Sea of Beautiful Trees! Very glad that I booked this tour. My tour guide was Yuji. He's very helpful from the start and give me a heads up about the traffic for the day so I could get there on time and actually enjoy the tour without any rush. The weather was perfect and the view is absolutely stunning! Yuji is obviously knows so much about Aokigahara and I learned lots of new things I wouldn't know before if it wasn't for him. I'll definitely recommend this tour to my peers and hoping to come back soon!

    Explore Aokigahara, the Sea of Beautiful Trees! I booked a day trip to the Sea of Trees with Voyagin and was matched with Tomomi, my guide for the day. Tomomi was wonderful. Tomomi was very communicative leading up to the trip and made sure I got to the meeting point on time and without trouble from Tokyo. She speaks fantastic English, is knowledgable about the forest, knows all the paths, and is very accommodating. She is personable, very lovely, and was a pleasure to spend the day with.

    But Tomomi goes above and beyond what is expected of her, which is what makes her an EXCELLENT guide.

    Firstly, it was a cloudy day when I visited. As I'm photographer, I had expressed interest in visiting a vantage point where I could get some nice pictures of Mount Fuji. Unfortunately, because of the clouds, when we started our hike, Mount Fuji was obstructed and barely viewable. This, of course, was disappointing. However, at the end of our hike through the Sea of Trees, Tomomi, knowing I was upset for not seeing the iconic mountain, brought me to another vantage point AFTER our tour was over. This was not expected of her, as our time together had come to an end, but she insisted. And to both our surprises, Mount Fuji had appeared and I was able to take some nice photos, before she went into hiding behind the clouds again. Not only this, but in my photographic frenzy, I dropped and lost my pair of expensive sunglasses. Noticing this after we left the site, she brought be back and helped me find them. In addition to all this, Tomomi, although she is not a photographer herself, took my camera—after some instruction on how to use it — and photographed me in the forest for a few nice portraits. This was a tremendous added bonus

    Tomomi is passionate about her job and cares deeply about the people she hosts. She wants them to have a great time and showcase her country with grace and professionalism. Highly recommended. If you book this trip with Voyagin, request Tomomi!
