What to Expect

Kunosan Toshogu shrine is one of the most popular historical sites in Shizuoka city. The first shogun of the Edo feudal government, Ieyasu Tokugawa was enshrined here about 400 years ago. I think he is the most famous shogun in Japanese history, because he united the nation for the first time. After he retired from the position of shogun, he spent his last years in Sumpu, the former name of Shizuoka because he loved the place very much. When he died in 1616, according to his living will, he was buried on the top of Mt. Kuno and Toshogu shrine was built the following year to enshrine his deified spirit. The main building was designated as a national treasure in 2010. The beautiful building is worth seeing and its design also exemplifies Ieyasu Tokugawa’s message of peace. I think you will find out why he wanted to be buried there and understand his spirit for pursuing peace.
After visiting Toshogu shrine, you can fully enjoy a panoramic view of the Shimizu port, Miho pine grove and Mt. Fuji, if the weather allows. We can visit Sushi Museum in the Shimizu Dream Plaza(which includes a shopping mall, a movie theater, museums, restaurants etc.). There are some good sushi restaurants around the port and a sushi lunch there is recommended since it boasts Japan’s largest catch of tuna. You will love the fresh seafood there!

☆ As an option, you can visit the fish market near the Shimizu port as well.
☆ If you are interested in other places in Shizuoka, I can add it to your itinerary.
Please don’t hesitate to ask.

“ Highly Recommended for Tea! ”

I had a marvelous experience with Hiroyo, and I would recommend her service to anyone looking to learn more about teas offered from the Shizuoka region. It was clear that Hiroyo has done her research thoroughly, and I had the opportunity to visit a well thought out list of tea farms. She was able to translate from English to Japanese and vice versa effectively and efficiently, and I'm very happy about the other tea related activities that she recommended, such as touring the tea museum and having matcha flavored ice cream, which was all very entertaining. Always punctual, professional, and courteous, I would highly recommend Hiroyo!

“ Visit to Kakegawa ”

This was our 1st visit to Shizuoka city and we had wanted to visit the Kiwi Fruit Country and a tea experience. Hiroyo kindly agreed to guide us through the city of Kakegawa, included the 2 requested experiences and added a visit to Kakegawa Castle to complement the tour. Hiroyo was knowledgeable in guiding us around and knowing our interest in local produce, she introduced and recommended local produce souvenirs which we bought back as memory of our trip to Kakegawa and Shizuoka. Hiroyo is highly recommended as a guide for your touring.

“ Our perfect day with Hiroyo! :) ”

It was an excellent day we had with Hiroyo! My family truly enjoyed every bit of our tour. We were blessed with good weather that day and were able to see Mt. Fuji clearly, was able to enjoy Yakisoba in Fujinomiya, and REALLY enjoyed the Tea Farm tour. The owners of the tea plantation were so entertaining and really explained to us the process of tea farming. Not a dull moment with Hiroyo!

“ Excellent Tour ”

Hiroyo Aizawa was our tour guide (October 17, 2017) and she planned an excellent day of sightseeing (Shizuoka Sengen Shinto Shrine, Sunpu Castle Park, Momijiyama Garden, Nihondaira plateau and a Sushi Museum). She was an extremely sweet young lady. She also was knowledgeable and provided lots of information on history, customs, traditions using excellent visuals to explain things. Her English was good and throughout the day she was very helpful. Truly a wonderful guide.
