“ 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

Yasuko:

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.

“ A great guide for Shimizu! ”

Yasuko met us coming off of the Diamond Princess, which docked in Shimizu. We planned for an 8 hour tour but ran out of steam. Yasuko was on-time for everything and communicated very well throughout the process. We had the opportunity to use local buses and local commuter trains. We tried Sake at a brewery, a Mt. Fuji Shrine, and the Mt Fuji museum. We also visited a large waterfall in the Mt. Fuji area and made it back in time for our daughter to try on a Kimono. Overall we really enjoyed our time with Yasuko and appreciate all the effort she made to make sure we had a great time. Thank you, Adam

Yasuko:

Thank you for your review, Adam san. I'm really happy to hear that you & family especially your daughter had fun. She was so cute to wear kimono, looked quite happy. It was not really good weather for the view of Mt. Fuji,but you tried almost everything you could experience around Shimizu port. I hope you will be back in sometime in Japan. If you don't mind I will put upload your photos on this site. Thank you so much, Adam & family. Yasuko

“ The best short excursion in Japan ”

Yasuko is an excellent tour guide who can speak English speaker well. She guided and taught us how to navigate the complicated train and bus system. We were able to see Mount Fuji very well from World heritage museum while many other people have to pay so much money to see it on the same day but they could not see it. She is very knowledgeable of local events. Using her knowledge of local information, she took us to a free event where we can try on the beautiful Kimono , learn about the tea ceremony and origami folding paper that were right next to our cruise ship. We also went on a Bullet train. We were able to do many things in one day. Without her guidance, we would have been lost and it would have been impossible to do all this in one day. Thank you so much Yasuko. We had a wonder... read more

“ Wonderful tour of Shimizu ”

We had a short amount of time in Shimizu from our cruise ship. Yasuko worked hard to arrange for taxi rides to Nihondaira and back. She had the taxi make a stop at a tea farm and she gave us a guided tour of the local fish market. She made the trip fun and informative. I would recommend her highly.

Yasuko:

To Adrian & Monica san, Thank you for good review of my tour. This was flexible tour for your requests. I'm so happy to hear that you had fun at a tea farm with view of Mt.Fuji. We had the nice taxi driver I could arrange. Also I could thankful fit you my tour by your straight requesting. Thank you so much. See you sometime in Japan.
