Overview

This is a small-group taxi tour for cruise ship passengers anchored in Shimizu Port. Although several bus tours might be offered for them on the ship, some people still prefer flexibility of a small group. If you are traveling by land, a taxi can also pick you up in the Shizuoka City area.

What to Expect

・At Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, which has been designated as a "National Treasure", you can see the venerable buildings and amazing carvings on them, and the guide explains the history of the shrine.
・If the weather is fine, you can enjoy the magnificent view of Mt. Fuji from Nihondaira as well as from Miho Pine Grove. (But please do not hold high expectations for viewing Mt. Fuji because we can not see it well when the weather is bad.)
・We will ride a cable car to Kunozan Toshogu. From the window of the cable car, you can look down at the dynamic landscape of Mt. Kuno and the wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean.
・If we still have time, we might have a chance to enjoy local green tea in a tea field.

“ top tour with top guide and top taxi driver ”

Koji picked us up at the port together with a very nice taxi driver. We booked a 5 hours tour but due to the beautiful weather conditions, Koji showed us during 6 hours so many nice and interesting places with an excellent English and lot of knowledge. We enjoyed this personalized tour very much and can only recommend Koji. Was a super be experience!

“ Shimizu Tour - Wheelchair Accessible ”

We enjoyed a great tour of Shimuzu organised for us by our tour guide Koji. Koji was extremely professional and very helpful in understanding the needs of someone in a wheelchair. My husband is a high functioning quadriplegic who uses a lightweight manual folding wheelchair. We appreciated the excellent communications prior to our tour from Koji- regarding our itinerary and our wheelchair access requirements and having informed Koji of our particular tour requirements, he organised a wheelchair accessible van with driver for our tour and planned a wheelchair accessible itinerary for us. Thankyou for a wonderful in Shimuzu. Peter & Suzy Hengstberger Australia

“ Our visit to Shimizu ”

Koji was a wonderful guide. During all the months that we were planning our day in Shimizu, he was always very responsive and flexible. He did everything in his power to show us all that we wanted to see. Koji was punctual on the day of the tour and was very thoughtful. He brought us water, umbrellas and towels because it was raining. He explained everything to us very well. His English is very understandable. I would recommend Koji to any of my friends who visit Shimizu. Thank you, Koji!
