About Tour Guide Koji I.

Since 2007 I have been an English-speaking tour guide, visiting most of the major sightseeing spots in Japan with international travelers. At the same time I have been working as an translator, mainly dealing with technical documents.

Shizuoka prefecture has a number of spots for sightseeing, but they have not been fully covered in English-language travel books or on the Internet. So, as a local tour guide, through the TripleLights services, I am hoping to introduce some of the attractiveness of this region to the international visitors.

Important

Please refrain from resorting to the "direct booking." I hope you will book after we reach an agreement over the total price (including the taxi fare) through the exchange of text messages.

Private Tour from Shimizu Port #1

Shimizu
4 hours

This is a small-group taxi tour for cruise ship passengers anchored in Shimizu Port. Although several bus tours might be offered for them on the ship, some people still prefer flexibility of a small group. If you are traveling by land, a taxi can also pick you up in the Shizuoka City area.

This is a small-group taxi tour for cruise ship passengers anchored in Shimizu Port. Although several bus tours might be offered to them on the ship, some people still prefer flexibility of a small group. If you are traveling by land, a taxi can also pick you up in the Shizuoka City or Fuji City areas.

Shizuoka Town History Tour

Shimizu
4 hours

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.

Ukiyo-e Tour in the Old Town of Yui

Shimizu
4 hours

Yui is a small fishing town in Shizuoka City, and it is not so far from Shimizu Port by taxi. On this tour, we will mainly follow the footsteps of Hiroshige, a renowned ukiyo-e artist from the early 19th century, through the old, narrow streets of Yui.

Kakegawa Historical Walking Tour

Other Shizuoka Locations
4 hours

Kakegawa is a middle-size city famous for its castle and its green tea production. As the city is located at almost the mid-point between Tokyo and Osaka, I hope that, during your Japan tour, you will get off a bullet train (shinkansen) here at Kakegawa Station and enjoy a short walking tour featuring the attractiveness of this region.

Adventure Tour at the Foot of Mt. Fuji

Other Shizuoka Locations
6 hours

Set in the Asagiri Highlands at the western foot of Mt. Fuji, this small-group taxi tour is a rather unorthodox one. The theme of this tour is "Challenge and Experience," with opportunities for you to actually participate in various activities.

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.

Koji was very knowledgeable on the area. He arranged a private driver for us which was very reasonable . He was prompt, courteous and flexible to our needs. He answered all our questions with more than expected . The time together went very quickly. I would highly recommend him and when I return will use him again.
