What a special experience in Shimizu area with Yumiko as our guide. She was in constant communications leading up to our time together and suggested a wonderful itinerary for our family. On the long rides to and from the port she shared information about the area and went above and beyond entertaining us with origami and teaching Japanese phrases. She took us to a wonderful authentic marketplace for lunch that all the locals were enjoying their Sunday lunch at it was delicious and a cultural treat. We even got to experience all of the Geishas walking to the shrine through the market, a rare treat as she informed us. We were in the area to see Mt Fuji, but the sky was overcast and we only caught a glimpse here and there, but that didn't matter because Yumiko was prepared with the photos of what the scenery usually looked like with Mt Fuji visible, we enjoyed everything even with Mt Fuji being shy. Would highly recommend Yumiko as a guide and we hope to spend a day with her again some day.
Anna, Thank you so much for your warm review!! Your lovely message made me happy. I myself had a great time with you and your family. Have you enjoyed Sake you bought at the Sake Brewery? Thanks to you, I've enjoyed Sake flavored with yuzu citrus. I hope to meet you again in the near future!! Thank you very much, Yumiko
