Ukiyo-e Tour in the Old Town of Yui

Shimizu
4 hours

Great Guide and Great Weather

Thank you for taking me on the Ukiyo-e Tour of Kanbara, Yui and up Satta Toge. I was especially pleased we saw Fuji-san clearly. I appreciated your guiding style. I found you organised, considerate and knowledgeable. I enjoyed the experience and your company. The tour is a highlight of my 3 week vacation in Japan. I would recommend it to people with an interest in the Edo period and Hiroshige's "53 Stations on the Tokaido" ukiyo-e.

Neville H.

Dear Neville-san, Many thanks for your warm comment! I also thank you for telling me a lot of interesting things during the tour. I thought that your idea of following Hiroshige's footsteps though the small towns of Yui and Kanbara was very interesting, and it actually rekindled my interest in the historical Tokaido Road. Well, of the 53 shuku (old post stations), you have visited two so far. How about exploring other interesting shuku sites next time? I will continue to study, and by the time you revisit Japan, I should be ready.

The main destinations of this tour are located in the downtown area of Shizuoka City, which is about a 30 to 40-minute drive from Shimizu Port. I made this small-group taxi tour mainly with clients arriving at Shimizu Port in mind, but I can also accomodate people travelling in the Shizuoka City area.
