“ Tour to Mount Fuji and waterfalls ”

Our tour with Yasuko was a full day from Shimizu port to Mount Fuji. She planned every detail very well and made sure to tailor our itinerary to what we wanted to see. Yasuko is a charming, considerate guide who made the experience even more memorable. We got to see two important sights for half of what our ship tour would have cost.

Yasuko:

I'm really happy to hear that you two could enjoy my tour to Mt. Fuji area. Of course, you were so lucky to have a view of Mt. Fuji very clearly on that day in this season. Will you come back in fall or winter? It would be much more beautiful scenery.

“ Yasuko is an outstanding tour guide! ”

Yasuko designed a 6 hour tour experience for our group of 8 from the the cruise port in Shimizu. Her english is outstanding and she accommodated our needs very well making seamless adjustments to our program as needed. Highlights of our time together included - Learning about the upcoming festival featuring Samuri Warriors competing in a form of archery on horseback, A unique visit to the Duck Stationery Store, A visit to the wonderful Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine with its extensive buildings, garden, bridges and the cold clear waters of Watutama Pond, The Mt Fuji Heritage Centre. Although we had hoped for views of Mt Fuji, there was 100% cloud cover, so our visit to the Heritage Centre showed us the vision of what we could have seen. We also enjoyed the local noodle lunch at Fujin... read more

Yasuko:

Thank you for writing a 5 stars review with my tour in Fujinomiya. On that day, it was not really good weather, so couldn't see a view of Mt. Fuji at all. But it often happens in this season. I'm so happy to hear that you all enjoyed it very much, especially visiting the stationary store with a duck manager. I hope you will be back in Japan again.

“ 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.

Yasuko:

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.

Yasuko:

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.
