What to Expect

In this tour, we will visit two places. One is the World Tea Museum located in Makinohara. It is the largest tea plantation in Japan. We can learn about the history and culture on tea across the world and experience tea ceremony there.
Shizuoka city has Chamachi(Tea Town) in its downtown area. There are some businesses related to tea industry gathering for a long time. We will visit one of the tea dealers to have a look at a tea factory and enjoy a cup of tea. The area also has an old shrine which had been patronized by Shogun Family and the towns(including tea twon) and streets had been developed under the reign of Shogun.
If you are a great tea lover, the tour will be recommended!

Hello, I’m Hiroyo. I was born and brought up in Shizuoka. After living in Tokyo and in England, eventually I came back to Shizuoka. It is really a good place to live.
I have been interested in Japanese traditional culture. I used to be in a Kendo(Japanese fencing) club and a Japanese flower arrangement club when I was a student. I got a degree of Sho-dan(first-dan) in Kendo, and a diploma in follower arrangement. I also got a certificate as a Japanese tea instructor. It would be my great pleasure to help you find out more about Japanese culture.
Shizuoka is a lovely place to visit. It has many historical sites, traditional culture, abundant nature and a wide variety of local specialties including green tea, wasabi, many kinds of fruits and sea food fresh from the sea! You will be sure to enjoy them. Hope to see you here in Shizuoka!

“ Tea Tour in Shizuoka ”

I had the pleasure of taking a custom tea tour with Hiroyo. I have a tea business and the purpose of my trip was to visit a tea farm and learn the manufacturing process. Hiroyo was very knowledgeable and was able to explain the different steps of Japanese tea manufacturing. It was exactly what I wanted to experience and I am glad I was able to find Hiroyo to guide me through Shizuoka. Thank you!

“ Visiting Shizouka and Fuji ”

Hiroyo was an excellent guide and a pleasure to spend time with. She was very organised and focused on what I wanted to achieve during our time together. Prior to firming up on the final itinerary there were a lot of changes due to fluid travel plans and she was very flexible and accommodating with those plans and made great suggestions. I would highly recommend Hiroyo's services.

“ Mt Fiji tea farm, shrine and sake brewery tour ”

We had a wonderful tour with Hiroyo! The visit to the tea farm and sake brewery were very informative and fun. Hiroyo made our visit very pleasurable even singing a couple of traditional Japanes songs :) I would definitely recommend this tour to those interested in knowing more about Japanese culture that you won't hear or see in the more touristy areas of Japan. Thanks Hiroyo for making our visit so pleasant.

We spent a wonderful day with Hiroyo tea sight seeing in Shizuoka. Even though the tour was in December we still had much fun visiting the World Tea Museum and a local tea factory. Hiroyo has excellent knowledge about tea and Shizuoka, and she is a great communicator so it really made for a wonderful tour!

Hiroyo-san was very helpful and patient, responding in a timely manner to all my questions as I was trying to decide which tour to take. During the tour, she also explained the history of the places we visited using helpful aids (such as illustrations). She was also very entertaining. Last but not least, she was very flexible in accommodating my mom's request for additional stop at the end of our tour.
