Overview

Would you like to spend a nice day starting from Shimizu? You can select any spots you wish to visit. I will try to arrange as many of your wishes come as possible.

What to Expect

Shizuoka at the foot of Mt. Fuji is home of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the 1st shogun of the Edo samurai Government. It is known for production of tea leaves, wide variety of sea food, and more! It can offer many cultural attractions, local delicacies and a pleasant calm day looking at a beautiful landscape.
Because this is a tailor-made tour just for you, you can probably spend your time fully for yourself. We can stop at places that catches your attention, as long as we don't miss departure of your cruise ship.

“ Day in Hakone ”

We had a wonderful day with Fumie leading our little family of 3 around Hakone. She was very communicative and detailed with logistics and instructions prior to the tour (much appreciated by this Type A person), and was both great at guiding us during our short day in Hakone while building in tons of flexibility since we had a two-year-old in tow. Not only was her friendly and calm demeanor helpful to our tired selves, but she was enthusiastic and attentive to our toddler -- who kept asking where "Aunt Fumie" went after we had to go our separate ways.

Fumie:

Hi Rachel-san, Thank you for your review! It was really a pleasure for me to help your family trip. Please convey to K-chan that Aunt Fumie misses her, too. There are many more beautiful sites to see in Japan and I hope you will come back in the future.

Fumie took us on a private tour to Mt. Fuji from Shimizu port. She is an excellent tour guide perfectly speaking English with great knowledge of the area visited. The individually tailored itinerary and her adorable personality made this day an awesome experience we will never forget. Thank you, Fumie, for this wonderful tour.

Fumie:

Thank you, Tamara-san, for your wonderful review. But I was able to do the tour for you with the help of other people, in particular, the lady at the tea farm was very caring and charming, wasn't she? I wish both of you best in your life back home!

Fumie is very proficient in English and she is a very responsible and attentive tour guide. She understood my preference and was able to come up with an excellent itinerary catering to my family needs (with 2 teenagers and a child) with short notice. A thoroughly enjoyable day trip.

Fumie:

E-san, It was a great pleasure for me to guide such a wonderful warm family and thank you very much for your compliment. I hope you had a good time making food samples, preparing matcha for your selves, and walking in a Japanese garden. I wish all the best for your family.
