We had a wonderful day in Shimizu with Chinami. She is very friendly, knowledgeable and engaged. She gave us great background, historical and cultural information as she guided us through the sites. She made use of public and private transportation to maximize our experience and was very flexible as our priorities changed. She took us to the fish market area for some local delicacies. We give her our highest recommendation.

Chinami is honestly the best guide I have ever had. She is so knowledgeable and overall a genuinely great person to talk to. She also helped me plan my routes to and from Kawaguchiko. She has provided me with a truly unique experience that I will never forget! I will be coming back to the Mt Fuji to see the rest of what the area has to offer, and when I do, I will be using Chinami's services again!
