Mt. Fuji is well known across the world. It is the highest mountain in Japan and was designated as a World cultural heritage site in 2013. You can enjoy the mountain not only by climbing it, but by visiting places around the mountain.
In this tour, we’ll visit Fujinomiya Sengen shrine where we will learn about the worship of Mt. Fuji as a sacred mountain. Local people have been blessed with abundant pure groundwater from Mt. Fuji which is important for agriculture and other industries in the area. An example of this is sake, where the taste depends on the purity of the water used. Our visits include a Sake brewery.
And we’ll visit a green tea house as well. Shizuoka is the biggest tea producer in Japan and has many production areas across the prefecture. Depending on the weather, the view of tea fields in front of Mt. Fuji is spectacular to see. Let’s enjoy a magnificent view over a cup of tea!
☆ If you are interested in other places in Shizuoka, I can add it to your itinerary.
Please don’t hesitate to ask.
Hiroyo is a wonderful and engaged guide who we can highly recommend. Everything is well organized, she has an adorable personality and she can help you to get more familiar with the japanese culture and basic etikette.
We had a fantastic visit toShimizu, thanks entirely to our wonderful guide. Thanks again
Spoke good English and very friendly
We spent a wonderful day with Hiroyo tea sight seeing in Shizuoka. Even though the tour was in December we still had much fun visiting the World Tea Museum and a local tea factory. Hiroyo has excellent knowledge about tea and Shizuoka, and she is a great communicator so it really made for a wonderful tour!
Hiroyo-san was very helpful and patient, responding in a timely manner to all my questions as I was trying to decide which tour to take. During the tour, she also explained the history of the places we visited using helpful aids (such as illustrations). She was also very entertaining. Last but not least, she was very flexible in accommodating my mom's request for additional stop at the end of our tour.
Shizuoka is the No. 1 Tea producer in Japan. We will visit two tea-related facilities on this tour. They are located in Makinohara plateau, the largest tea plantation area in Japan.
