“ Great tour of Shimizu highlights ”

We only had 4 hours while ship was in port, but we did a lot! We stopped by a tea farm and then went to the Nihondaira plateau observation deck for a view of the gorgeous Mt. Fuji. We then visited the Kunozan Toshogu Shrine. This was very interesting but requires some stamina to climb up and down all the steep stone steps. Yasuko was an excellent guide and spoke very good English.


Dear Marla, Thank you for writing a review about my tour. I really happy to hear that you had a good experience. You're right a little tough to visit Kunozan Tōshō-gū shrine, but it was so gorgeous buildings. Have a wonderful rest of your trip in Japan. Thank you so much.

“ Unexpected Experiences ”

Yasuko was very accommodating. We had a nice visit at places we wanted to visit,. An unexpected trip to a tea production warehouse, became the highlife of the tour as we shared a very nice and intimate experience with the tea grower / manuracturer and his family. A pure delight. And the new Nihondaira lookout was wonderful to view the area. All in all a great trip and still have time to visit the port shopping area. for noodles and ice cream.


Paul-san Thank you for writing a review. I' m really happy to hear that you had a great time with visiting tea shop and tasting some special green tea. I will tell them about it. When you dropped by the shopping center, also you enjoyed some food. Have a safe trip and enjoy traveling Japan. Thank you so much.

“ Wonderful Private Half Day Tour of Shizuoka with Yasuko ”

We recently went on a Windstar cruise in Japan and had a short stop in Shimizo. We pre-booked a half day tour with local expert, Yasuko, to visit Shizuoka. We found Yasuko from a list of available private tour guides from the TripleLights.com website. From the planning stages, she communicated thoroughly with our itinerary and answered any and all questions very promptly. We had only half a day at port and so we wanted to see the Kunozan Toshogu Shrine and Mt. Fuji. She met us at the port and from there, she navigated our way effortlessly to the Nihondaira Ropeway by means of subways and bus. She was amazing with her time scheduling, knowing where and when we should be at any one moment. Yasuko's English is excellent. She explained the history, culture and meaning of the various ... read more


Dear Jamie san, Thank you for writing the review about my tour, I' m really happy to hear that you enjoyed very much on that day. We were really lucky to visit Toshogu shrine on the special day, could through the main gate and see the special decoration. I could manage the tour schedule punctually, but it depended on your ship schedule for helpful with transport timetable. New observation deck will be opening on Nov. 3rd, you will be back in shimizu sometime. Thank you so much.
