Inclusions & Exclusions

What‘s included

Guide fee, tour guide's transportation fees.

What‘s not included

・Taxi fare (we use a chartered taxi for transportation. I'll contact you via text message with an approximate price).
・Price for the tandem paraglider flight: 10,000 yen per person (10,000 yen is about 91 USD as of May 2019).
・Admission to the Japanese-style bathhouse: between 600 and 900 yen per person.
・Asagiri Food Park is admission-free, but some of the activities it offers require fees and prior booking (the prices and details are different for each activity).
・The (optional) animal farm requires an admission fee, and so does the trout fishing pond.

Important

・In the event of rain or strong wind, paraglider flight are not offered. But fortunately, this area provides a relatively large number of alternative options to choose from. So, if you take this tour, I hope you will also consider alternative activities in that case.
・For a paragrider flight, you are kindly advised to wear long-sleeve shirts, pants, and sports shoes.
・If your weight exceeds 100 kilograms (220 pounds), I am sorry but you are not permitted to take the paraglider flight.
・For the Japanese-style bathing, you are kindly advised to bring your own towel and bath towel if possible, because renting or buying these at the facility requires an extra cost. read more

Frequently Asked Questions

I am going to visit Shimizu on a cruise ship. Can you pick me up at Shimizu Port and take me to this tour?

It is not impossible, but I am afraid it might be a little difficult unless you have plenty of time in Shimizu (at least 9 hours). For one thing, the main area of this tour (the Asagiri Highlands) is simply a little bit too far from the port of Shimizu, and for another, the time management would be not so easy in the case of this tour due to its characteristics. Considering that the first priority for cruise ship passengers is to return to the port well before the ship's departure time, this tour has several risk factors.

Can I make changes after I book?

Yes! If you need to make changes such as removing or adding someone to your booking or changing the date or time of your tour, contact us by phone or email

Starting and ending points of the tour.

After you secure your booking, the starting and ending points of your tour can be customized to your convenience (ex.: your hotel, nearby stations, etc.). Don't worry, we will take care of you! Some tours may have an extra fee for this service, make sure to check the tour page.

What happens after I book a tour?

After booking a tour, the guide will accept (or decline) your booking within 24 hours. Then you will be noticed by email from Triplelights.

Is the price per person or per group?

The price is charged per group. Which means that you make a one-time payment for your entire group and the price will not change if it is less or more people.

Can I add more people to my booking?

Some guides accept extra people (more than the specified number) for an extra charge. Please check for the extras on the tour or booking page, or contact your guide directly to clarify.

“ Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine, Shiraito Falls, sake brewery, Mt Fuji World Heritage Center ”

We had a wonderful tour. Koji was an excellent tour guide, and we had a most enjoyable day. Unfortunately, it was cloudy, so we did not see Mt Fuji. Nevertheless both Koji and his driver made sure that we had an enjoyable time, making sure that we saw all we wanted to see. Thank you for a lovely day.

Koji:

Dear Susan, I am glad you seem to have arrived back at home safely. Many thanks for your kind review! I am relieved you could find some sort of pleasure in the tour despite the weather. The driver and I also enjoyed the time with you two. Please take care, and send our regards to Phil. Thank you very much.

“ Half day tour from Shimizu port ”

Koji kept in constant touch with me once we agreed to hire him. The issue, of course, was the best time to see Mt Fuji. As it happened we had a most glorious day. We were a group of 5 with varying physical limitations. Koji adapted to and kept watch over us and was so very knowledgeable about what we were viewing I feel so very fortunate to have selected Koji as our guide. 5 stars +++

Koji:

Dear Marylin, Many thanks for taking my tour yesterday and writing the generous and wonderful review! It was a great pleasure for me to guide you five through the Shimizu area. Well, I am sorry some of you, especially your husband, couldn’t see all of Kunozan Toshogu Shrine (mainly because of its daunting stone steps), but I wish they could find enjoyment, in some form or another, in the tour. Thank you very much, and please take care for the rest of your trip.

“ Exceptional guide ”

Koji adjusted our tour during the cruise stop in Shimizu to take into account my disability. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful; we couldn't find a better guide. Everything was very well planned.

Koji:

Dear Sir, Many thanks for writing the warm comment. It was an honor for me to guide you two. You might have thought that it was unfortunate Mt. Fuji was too shy to appear during the tour, but I hope you will think about it in a positive way: for example, now you have one reason to revisit Japan in the future! Please be well, and send my best regards to your wonderful wife Irene.

“ Tour from Shimizu port ”

A wonderful day with an excellent guide and driver, despite rain. Koji greeted us with a supply of towels, handled our bulky umbrellas, stopped to purchase a poncho for my husband before we headed out. My husband was not able to negotiate stairs, but stayed with our driver while Koji and I explored Kunozan Toshogu Shrine (in more rain). Informative explanations with additional stops at a tea field and Miho Pine Grove made this day.

Koji:

Dear Barbara, Thank you very much for taking my tour and writing the generous comment about it! Well, It was a rainy day, and we managed to see the traditional ceremony at the shrine and the legendary sword in the museum, but Mt. Fuji was always thickly covered with clouds. Nevertheless, I spent an enjoyable time with you and your husband, and I hope you could enjoy some aspects of the tour, too. I thanked the taxi driver for helping us a lot during the tour and will thank him again the next time I meet him. Please be well, and if possible, please visit Japan again some day in the future.

“ Private Tour from Cruise Ship in Shimizu ”

From the outset (e-mails prior to booking the tour), I could tell Koji was an exceptional guide. We wanted an ambitious version of his Tour #2 and he was more than accommodating. He did not promise us the moon as a lot depended on traffic. He said he would be at the port a half hour early, and if we could manage to debark early, we could probably get every single thing in! We did get off early...and he and our taxi driver couldn't have been more wonderful. Knowledgable and entertaining, our day flew by. He managed to include all kinds of little extras...seemed like he knew everyone everywhere. We are a very experienced traveling threesome...we have booked private tours everywhere in the world as we have found they are the most efficient use of limited time. Koji really is EX... read more

Koji:

Dear Teresa, Thank you very much for writing the exceptionally good review! I know it is more than I deserve, but still these words encourage me a lot. I am also grateful that you paid attention to, and evaluated highly, my work at the e-mail-exchange stage prior to the tour. Looking back at the actual tour in mid-April, it was regrettable that I couldn't take you to Lake Tanuki due to the poor visibility of Mt. Fuji, but I hope you three eventually enjoyed the six-hour tour on the whole. You and Maila-san were extremely energetic and curious, and Richard was unassuming and very gentle. The taxi driver and I also had a fun time with you three. Please take care, and contact us anytime if there is anything we can do for you.
