What to Expect

We will visit the charming traditional and historical town of Shuzenji, located at the all lmost center of Izu Peninshula, the oldest hot springs resort in Izu, which is only less than 2 hours from Tokyo by train.
Shuzenji is discribed as "little Kyoto" that attracts many visitors from inside and outside from the country, celebrated for beautiful mountains, hot springs, historical sites associated with the Genjinsajurai clan.
When you are in Shuzenj, you will find Shuzenji very different from other hot spring resorts as the town remainds quaint and relaxed atmosphere of old Japan.
Because of this distinctively nostalgic and elegant atmosphere, many famouse novelists and artists such as Ryunosuke Akutagawa, Yasunari Kawabata and others created their master pieces there .

We visit very attractive spots such as a historical temple of Shuzenji Temple, Shigetsu den known as the oldest wooden structure in Izu and very elegant atmosphere of Bamboo Forest Path .All of them were disignated as one of the beautiful spots in Japan by "Michelin Green Guide Japan".
Walking through the bamboo Forest Path, listening to the sound of birds.

Why not trying Japanese Kimono?
There is a shop you can rent Japanese traditional Kimono ,and you can strall around the town.
When you get tired, you can stop at "Ashiyu"-foot bath along the revier, too.

Before leaving Izu, you may want to try delicious food in Izu, such as fresh Japanese noodle with the best Wasabi in this area, Sushi and others.
I can arrange your lunch for you uopn your request ! You will enjoy freshest seafood from the Suruga bay for Sushi but what is more fun is the time you share with the owner of the sushi restaurant. At the counter with its friendly atmosphere
you feel as if you were their regular customer!

- Shuzenji is known as the best spot for " autumn leaves" and " cherry blossom ".
The season of autumn leaves starts from the end of October till the end of November.
The season of cherry blossom starts from the end of March to April. However, it differs depending on the weather and temperature .

You enjoy meeting with the local people, visiting local craft and ceramic shops and trying delicious food and sweet to add your great memories.

So Please come and visit Shuzenji !
This is something you can not miss and I am so happy to show you
around my favorite town!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Shuzenji far from Tokyo and other major cities?

No.It is much closer than you think .It takes less than 2 hours from Tokyo and 4 hours from Oosaka (Shinkasen Hikari is used ).There are several ways to come to Shuzenji such as the direct train "Izuno Odoriko"from Tokyo station and bus from Shinjyuku station ,too .
However ,it is the best to come to Mishima then change to Izu hakone line as ther are many trains running so that the connection of trains is very smoothly done .
Moreover,you can enjoy the view of Mt.Fuji and local scenery from the train .
It is good experience for you .

For example ,arriving at Shuzenji for the tour (11:00am start),you get on Shinkansen at Tokyo statiion at 9:03am ,arriving at Mishima at 9:47.Then change the train to Izu Hakone Line ,leaving Mishia at 10:17,arriving at Shuzenji at 10:57am.
For return to Tokyo after 5/6 hours tour (let's say 5 hours tour leaving Shuzenji at 4:00pm), you get on the train at 16:05pm to Mishima,arriving at 16:40pm,changing to Shinkansen at 16:50pm then you are at Tokyo at 17:47pm.
This is quick,isn't it?
