Overview

This is a small-group taxi 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, a taxi 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) or Japanese-style green tea, it is possible for me to book either a free brewery tour, including free tasting, at a sake brewery, or a casual-style tea-drinking session at a green tea farm.
・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.
・If it rained (Mt. Fuji was barely visible), one of my recommendations would be a visit to "Mt. Fuji World Heritage Centre, Shizuoka," as it is a museum where you can "simulate" Mt. Fuji climbing.

Highlights

  • Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha (UNESCO World Heritage Site)

  • Lake Tanuki (optional)
  • Mt. Fuji World Heritage Centre, Shizuoka (rainy-day option)

Important

1. 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 a taxi driver 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.
2. 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.
3. As to a visit to a sake brewery or a green tea farm, please note that, since these facilities are family-run businesses or rather small-scale companies, the booking is subject to change at the last moment. read more

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!
