Overview

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

What to Expect

・It takes 50 to 60 minutes from Shimizu Port by car to reach the main area of the tour. Since we get very close to Mt. Fuji, we can see it prominently in front of us if the weather is fine. (But please do not hold high expectations for viewing Mt. Fuji because we can not see it well when the weather is bad.)
・At Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha, the guide will tell you how this beautiful World Heritage shrine has been closely related to Mt. Fuji since ancient times.
・Shiraito Falls is also one of the highlights of this area. Mt. Fuji's ground water gushes out from the rock layers, which is a wonderful sight to see.
・If you are interested in sake (Japanese rice wine), I will try to book a free brewery tour at Takasago Sake Brewery.
・Lake Tanuki is also optional. If the weather is fine, you might have a chance to see the famous "postcard-like view" of Mt. Fuji and its reflection on the lake.

Important

1. If your party is made up of 5 people or more, I need to use a large-sized rental car as a main method of transportation. The price of a rental car varies according to the conditions, such as the type of car and the rental car company. When the particular car we will use is decided, I will tell you the price.
2. This is a 5-hour tour, but we need to drive for almost an hour to reach the main area of the tour, and the roads in Fuji City are likely to be congested (especially in the evenings). That is why sometimes it may be a little difficult for me to adjust the tour time and finish the tour exactly in 5 hours. So please allow for a little extra time due to the traffic conditions, in which case I will not charge you any extra fees. If you definitely need to keep the tour time to 5 hours, please mention that to me beforehand so I can adjust the tour accordingly.
3. You need to walk down a considerable number of stone steps to reach the basin of the Shiraito Falls, and there are no elevators or paths. So please tell me beforehand if that's going to be a problem. read more

Since 2007 I have been an English-speaking tour guide, visiting most of the major sightseeing spots in Japan with international travelers. At the same time I have been working as an translator, mainly dealing with technical documents.
Shizuoka prefecture has a number of spots for sightseeing, but they have not been fully covered in English-language travel books or on the Internet. So, as a local tour guide, through the TripleLights services, I am hoping to introduce some of the attractiveness of this region to the international visitors.

“ Shore excursion from port Shimizu ”

We were meet at the pier by Koji. Easy to find and on time. We had booked a day tour online. Very easy to get in contact whit Koji and fast reply. We drove to the waterfalls, it is beautiful. Koji was informing underway in the car and talked about the sights we visited. Great stop at a sake brewery and the best, a stop at a the farm. It was a great day and we would book Koji again if we have the opportunity.
