    Explore Aokigahara, the Sea of Beautiful Trees!

    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!

    Explore Aokigahara, the Sea of Beautiful Trees! If you're a nature lover I would definetely recommend this. The forest is very tranquil and absolutely beautiful. Yuji was also a fantastic tour guide who went above and beyond to guide me to my other destinations on my itinerary that day.

    Explore Aokigahara, the Sea of Beautiful Trees!

    Explore Aokigahara, the Sea of Beautiful Trees! Our guide, Estuo was great. He had a good knowledge of the track and history of this area. We did a two hour walk and enjoyed the hidden beauty of this forest. An easy walk, however beware there is no signage in English. Thank you Etsuo for an enjoyable afternoon.
