About Tour Guide Setsuko H.

Hello, I'm Setsuko!

I am living in Shizuoka City, Home of Mt. Fuji. It is a very attractive local city located in the middle of Japan.

It takes about only one hour from Tokyo or Nagoya by the super express Shinkansen.

I’d love to introduce you some historical places related to the first shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, local arts and crafts and modern hobby manufactures as well as local specialities such as green tea, citrus fruits, and fresh seafood. Let’s visit scenic spots on the base of Mt. Fuji together. You can not miss many hot spring resorts in Izu Peninsula. I also recommend visiting industrial musems of Yamaha, Suzuki, Honda,Toyota, etc. in Hamamatsu area.

People in Shizuoka are very friendly and welcome guests from overseas.

Why don’t we share a wonderful time here in Shizuoka?

Setsuko H. Japan Tour Reviews

Mount Fuji Day Tour

We were glad to view the magnificent Mt. Fuji on a bright sunny day with our wonderful tour guide Ms Setsuko. She is knowledgeable in the history of each of the listed attractions (e.g. Lake Tanuki & Shiraito Waterfall) and accommodating in our requests. She even brought us some delicious snacks and taught us some basic Japanese origami and language. We would highly recommend her if you are looking for a tour guide around Mt. Fuji area.

Melinda H.

Thank you so much for your nice review, Melinda.We were very lucky to see spectacular Mt. Fuji on a beautiful day. I was glad you showed much interest in tea leaf picking and tasting green tea in the tea farm. I suppose all of you are enjoying green tea at home. Since you bought 2 varieties, I'll send you the recipi later on how to make tasty tea and effectively get components. Say hello to you mother and father.

Great tour in Shimuzu

Setsuko was waiting at the cruise pier for our group of 6. We went to the water falls, shrine/temple and a Sake brewery. The weather did not cooperate for a site of Mt. Fuji however she emailed me photos she had taken on previous trips. Great information and also taught us origami. Highly recommend her! She also arranged the transport for our group.

Julie V.

Dear Julie, I was very glad that all of you showed much interest in our culture. In the Takasago Brewery which uses ground water from Mt. Fuji, you enjoyed tasting Japanese traditional rice wine, sake and were pleased with its aroma and flavour. Hopefully you will enjoy it with your family and friends when you go back to your country. Please have fun during the rest days of crusing trip.

Enjoyed Our Tour

We had a very enjoyable tour with Setsuko. She customized the tour to suit our personal interests and gave us a detailed itinerary prior to the tour. She arrived on time and met us beside the ship. We traveled by city bus to the Mino Pine Groves and the nearby shrine and beach. Then we went to the Marine Science Museum where we watched demonstrations of the mechanical fish they are using to study how fish swim. Finally we crossed the bay in a water ferry, spent a few minutes inside the fish market, and arrived back at our ship on time. Unfortunately, Mt. Fuji was not visible because of the rain. Setsuko speaks good English and is very knowledgeable about the religious customs at the shrines. She had prepared several small gifts for us - postcards, pins, and some origami birds. Although at times she walked a bit too quickly for us (we are seniors), it was clear that she had prepared very thoroughly for the tour and did everything to make it a good day for us. All in all, we were very pleased with the tour.

Hello Patricia, I'm very happy to know both of you enjoyed visiting the Miho Pine Groves, the shrine dedicated to the local god and marine musuem on a rainy day.I also had great time together feedng bread to seagulls from the water bus.I'm sorry to have rushed you sometimes because I wanted to show you many places in a limited time. Since you couldn't meet Mt. Fuji, I'll send you some photos I took from our hometown Shizuoka and on the 5th station this summer. Hopefully you'll find its beauty and charms. Thank you for sharing wonderful time with me.
