Please noted:

The road and the cable car to Owaku valley has been currently closed due to the increasing sulfer emissions ( as of July , 2019).

Hakone Tour Reviews

Well-organized, very welcoming and warm

Our visit with Hiroko to the wasabi fields in Izu was an amazing experience from the moment we met her at the station. She was very welcoming and provided a warm, happy tour for our family. Everything was very well organized and she took special care to spend extra time seeing things that we were interested in. We would highly recommend her if you are looking for a special experience in Japan.

Kyle K.

Dear Mr. Kyle and Mr. Kyle’s parents, Thank you so much for your warm comments. I am so glad to know that you and your parents enjoyed the tour surrounded by peaceful and beautiful nature of Izu with no tourists. And I appreciate your friendliness and kindness. I hope that you and your parents stay fine and happy. Please give my regards to your parents. Thank you very much again. I am lo forward to meeting you all again in the future. Best regards, Hiroko

Amazing Mount Fiji

My mother and I travelled to Shizuoka and enjoyed a wonderful day with Hiroko. Absolutely recommend her as a guide if you are in the Fuji area.

Gordon A.

Dear Mr. Gordon, Thank you very much for your warm comment on the tour. I am so glad that you and your mother enjoy the tour and saw magnificent view of Mt. Fuji. It was a wonderful day for me throughout the tour, too but we really had great walk in Miho Pine grove. I hope that you and your mother will stay well and happy. Thank you again for everything and I hope to see you again in the future. Best regards, Hiroko

Awesome day visiting a wasabi farm and tea plantation

Hiroko was an awesome guide. We were travelling with a 4 month old and we forgot his formula. She brought us to a drugstore so we can get formula so we can continue our trip. It was a bit challenging travelling with a 4 month old but she made it easy for us. She did a customized tour for us, first to a wasabi farm where she gave us information on how wasabi is grown, then after that we went to a short hike to view a waterfalls. After that she brought us to a tea farm. Where we picked tea leaves and tasted green tea. We enjoyed our tour wih Hiroko. It was a perfect day for us.

Camille A.

Thank you again. I hope to see you in the future. Best regards, Hiroko

We will visit the charming traditional and historical town of Shuzenji, located at the all lmost center of Izu Peninshula, the oldest hot springs resort in Izu, which is only less than 2 hours from Tokyo by train. Shuzenji is discribed as "little Kyoto" that attracts many visitors from inside and outside from the country, celebrated for beautiful mountains, hot springs, historical sites associated with the Genjinsajurai clan. When you are in Shuzenj, you will find Shuzenji very different from other hot spring resorts as the town remainds quaint and relaxed atmosphere of old Japan. Because of this distinctively nostalgic and elegant atmosphere, many famouse novelists and artists such as Ryunosuke Akutagawa, Yasunari Kawabata and others created their master pieces there . We visit very attractive spots such as a historical temple of Shuzenji Temple, Shigetsu den known as the oldest wooden structure in Izu and very elegant atmosphere of Bamboo Forest Path .All of them were disignated as one of the beautiful spots in Japan by "Michelin Green Guide Japan". Walking through the bamboo Forest Path, listening to the sound of birds. Why not trying Japanese Kimono? There is a shop you can rent Japanese traditional Kimono ,and you can strall around the town. When you get tired, you can stop at "Ashiyu"-foot bath along the revier, too. Before leaving Izu, you may want to try delicious food in Izu, such as fresh Japanese noodle with the best Wasabi in this area, Sushi and others. I can arrange your lunch for you uopn your request ! You will enjoy freshest seafood from the Suruga bay for Sushi but what is more fun is the time you share with the owner of the sushi restaurant. At the counter with its friendly atmosphere you feel as if you were their regular customer! - Shuzenji is known as the best spot for " autumn leaves" and " cherry blossom ". The season of autumn leaves starts from the end of October till the end of November. The season of cherry blossom starts from the end of March to April. However, it differs depending on the weather and temperature . You enjoy meeting with the local people, visiting local craft and ceramic shops and trying delicious food and sweet to add your great memories. Upon your request, we can visit wasabi field and great view spots of Mt. Fuji. I am happy to create your original tour, too. So Please come and visit Shuzenji ! This is something you can not miss and I am so happy to show you around my favorite town!
