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.

Dear Mrs. Camille, Thank you very much for your warm comments. I am so glad that you, your husband and Charles enjoyed the tour and made a great memories of Izu.It was a lovely tour for me, too. Your baby ,Charles, is so quite and very good boy. You all are still vacation in Philippines so please enjoy there and I am looking forward to hearing about your wasabi growing in January. Thank you again. I hope to see you in the future. Best regards, Hiroko

Toshogu Shrine, Shimizu Sushi Museum & Lunchcover image

Toshogu Shrine, Shimizu Sushi Museum & Lunch

Other Shizuoka Locations
5 hours

Kunosan Toshogu shrine is one of the most popular historical sites in Shizuoka city. The first shogun of the Edo feudal government, Ieyasu Tokugawa was enshrined here about 400 years ago. I think he is the most famous shogun in Japanese history, because he united the nation for the first time. After he retired from the position of shogun, he spent his last years in Sumpu, the former name of Shizuoka because he loved the place very much. When he died in 1616, according to his living will, he was buried on the top of Mt. Kuno and Toshogu shrine was built the following year to enshrine his deified spirit. The main building was designated as a national treasure in 2010. The beautiful building is worth seeing and its design also exemplifies Ieyasu Tokugawa’s message of peace. I think you will find out why he wanted to be buried there and understand his spirit for pursuing peace. After visiting Toshogu shrine, you can fully enjoy a panoramic view of the Shimizu port, Miho pine grove and Mt. Fuji, if the weather allows. We can visit Sushi Museum in the Shimizu Dream Plaza(which includes a shopping mall, a movie theater, museums, restaurants etc.). There are some good sushi restaurants around the port and a sushi lunch there is recommended since it boasts Japan’s largest catch of tuna. You will love the fresh seafood there! ☆ As an option, you can visit the fish market near the Shimizu port as well. ☆ If you are interested in other places in Shizuoka, I can add it to your itinerary. Please don’t hesitate to ask.
