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.

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!

“ 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.

“ 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.
