Overview

Atami is a small onsen resort only 48 min. from Tokyo on Shinkansen trains. It is one of the oldest spa resorts in Japan and historically it has been an attractive retreat for celebrities. But it has rustic charms to offer, too. If you are tired of traveling in big cities, why don’t you visit Atami and spend a day or two and find spots off the unbeaten path.

What to Expect

You can get a rough idea about central Atami in a half-day walk tour. By visiting a shinto shine in a serene atmosphere, the very central hot spring of Atami spa, a small but charming geisha theater and a classical luxury villa (turned into a tourist spot), you can tell that Atami was an elegant hideaway where cultured people from Tokyo loved.

I offer a sample itinerary, which can be varied and adjusted depending on your physical condition, preference, season, weather and availability (most places are closed at least one day of a week). If you get tired and you don not mind bearing additional costs, of course, we can use a taxi any time, because it is not an endurance contest or physical training!

Sample Itinerary (Sat. & Sun)
9:00 Meet at Atami Station
9:06 Take a local train from Atami
9:08 Arrive at Kinomiya Station
9:20 Visit Kinomiya Shrine
10:10 Ohyu Geyser & Yuzen Shrine

Important

Atami is a hilly town. The tour is designed to walk down the hills as much as possible (To this end, we plan to take a train or a bus to the first destination.), but in some places participants may need to negotiate steps and uphills. Please wear comfortable shoes.
When the weather is rough, I am happy to propose an alternative plan, probably using public transportations.

“ One day Hakone trip ”

Our journey to Hakone was a great one. We had 13 people in our troop with kids, seniors, adults etc. She managed the group very well, helped all of us stay on time and made sure that we covered all things that were discussed when the booking was made. The original ropeway was closed for volcanic activity and she was very efficient in changing our itenary so that we could still do an alternate ropeway and enjoy the same things that we had originally planned for. I will totally recommend anyone to appoint Fumie as their guide. Thanks again Fumie.

Fumie:

Thank you, Deepa-san, for letting me help your extended-family trip. I hope you enjoyed the trip as much as to make you want to come back to Japan sometime in the future. I hope you and your big family will be happy and prosperous as ever.

“ If you want customized fuji experience, go with Fumie! ”

Fumie planned a most delightful day for our group of 10. She went to great lengths before and during our tour to ensure there was something for everyone. We exchanged several messages and she integrated all of the info i gave her about the ages and personalities of our group members into an inpeccably planned customized experience. She even took on connecting us with charter bus company. I cant sufficiently express our gratitude - the day was perfect.

Fumie:

Hi Paul-san. Thank you so much for very quick and good review. You were a fantastic leader of your team. Mt. Fuji even smiled to you despite rainy/cloudy weather forecast. I wish every one of you good luck during the rest of your trip and life ahead!

“ Looking for the PERFECT guide for Mt. Fuji? Choose Fumie! ”

3 senior couples had an amazing day with Fumie while our ship was in Shimizu. We had the perfect view of Mt. Fuji from Lake Tanuki. We were amazed at the beauty of Shiraito no Taki Waterfalls and Otodome no Taki Waterfalls. Fumie guided us through the Sengentaisha Shrine and our final destination was the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center. Fumie is very charming, proud of her county, speaks excellent English and knows the perfect angles for the perfect photographs. Thanks Fumie for a great day.

Fumie:

Thank you, Claudia-san, for taking your time to write such a superb comment on me. You have a great family and friends! I wish continued good health and happiness to you all!

“ Fantastic custom day tour in Kamakura ”

My colleague and I spent a wonderful day with Fumie who designed a custom tour based on our interest in spending time at zen temples, walking outdoors, seeing early Cherry Blossoms 🌸 and learning about the history of Kamakura. She was responsive to emails and sent us helpful information in advance (transportation, itinerary options), she picked a wonderful restaurant that caters to my vegan plant based 🌱 diet yet offers traditional Japanese food and found us tasty vegan Sakura Mochi at a local confectionary. Her English is excellent; she is fit to guide day hikers (we walked >8 miles and took 88 flights of stairs while visiting temples). Overall a wonderful experience for which we are grateful.

Fumie:

Thank you for taking your time to write a review on me, and good one! I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the time we spent together. I am wishing you the best.
