“ Visit to a remote wasabi & green tea farm ”

Hiroyo is a wonderful guide. She took the effort to familiarise herself with the farm which we suggested to visit by getting in contact with the owner and later preparing factsheets for us so that our cultural immersion is complete. In addition, Hiroyo checked to see that we have driven in mountainous areas before & asked us to consider insurance cover for our rental car in case of accidents. Hiroyo was very well prepared, she taught us a tea harvesting song and some origami + had origami gifts to take away for us. Al in all, we had a great experience with Hiroyo - we highly recommend Hiroyo.

Hiroyo:

Dear Christine, Thank you very much for your comment! I'm very happy to hear from you!! I just talked with the farm. It was our great pleasure to welcome your wonderful family here. I hope that you can enjoy making Hojicha(roasted tea) by yourself at home as well. If you have another chance to visit here in Shizuoka, I'm always ready to welcome you!! Thank you! Hiroyo

“ Shizuoka green tea tour ”

We had a delightful day excursion in the countryside of Shizuoka tea region. Hiroyo is very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about green tea processing. We enjoyed the tea tastings and lunch as well. Overall we had a wonderful time with our guide, Hiroyo.

Hiroyo:

Dear Melanie, Thank you very much for your warm message! I'm very happy to know that you and your daughter enjoyed the day. It was a wonderful time for me to spend a beautiful day with you! Shizuoka is a beautiful place to stay and has more to enjoy. I hope you have another opportunity to visit Japan! Thank you!! Hiroyo

“ Extremely flexible and organized ”

We had a long list of things we wanted to do, and Hiroyo arranged the tour in a perfect order. We had good time to see everything and didn't have to stress when eating lunch. We even got time for an unplanned detour, because it was a beautiful site close by! In the bus (when it could have been boring) she taught us songs and origami to pass time. In all a perfect planned day!

Hiroyo:

Thank you very much for your warm message! I’m so happy to know that you and you family enjoyed the tour. It was really a great opportunity for me to spend such a beautiful day with your beautiful family. I hope you’ll have another chance to visit Japan! Best wishes, Hiroyo

“ A day in and around Fujinomiya ”

We really enjoyed our time touring around Fujinomiya with Hiroyo. She is very professional, knowledgeable, and speaks English quite well. She took us to some very nice places that probably would not have been possible if I did not have her as our guide, particularly the tea farm and sake brewery. She shared some very nice stories with us as we learned historic cultural meanings and about Japanese life and traditions. My wife and I highly recommend Hiroyo for tours around Shizuoka.

Hiroyo:

Dear Geoffrey & Judy, Thank you very much for your warm message. I also enjoyed to be with you on the day! The happy time has been always all too short. I hope you'll have another opportunity to visit Japan. I'll always welcome you here, hopefully with Mt. Fuji! Thank you so much!! Best wishes, Hiroyo
