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.

“ 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

“ One of the best tour I've had ”

Hiroyo is very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive guide. She not only took us to beautiful tea farm and wholesaler, she showed us many things around Shizuoka, teach us many new tea facts, translated our discussion with the people we meet, and always on her toes to notify everyone what is going on next. Even took us for ice-cream even though it was not on the itinerary. Very sweet lady and highly recommend her guiding service.

Hiroyo:

Dear Bena, Thank you for your kind message! I'm really happy to hear from you!! It was a great day for me to welcome you and your family here in the begining of the new year. As you know, Shizuoka is the No.1 tea producer in Japan and there are more interesting places and also more other places to enjoy. I hope you'll have another opportunity to visit Shizuoka. I'll always welcome you. Thank you so much!! Best wishes, Hiroyo

“ Wonderful experience ”

Hiroyo is a very friendly and well-informed guide. We are very pleased and enjoyed our trip with her. She told us a little bit of Japan History, and teach us a LOT of Japanese tea and production processing. She taught us 2 Japanese songs and translated them so we could sing together. At the end of our trip, she brought us to try Japanese "cha-ffle", a light and very refreshing snacks. Very recommended guide 👍👍👍

Hiroyo:

Thank you very much for your warm message! I'm really happy to hear from you. It was a good opportunity for me to spend the day with you! I hope you can enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and also you'll have another chance to visit here. Shizuoka has more to visit and enjoy. I'm always happy to welcome you!! Thank you!! Hiroyo
