What to Expect

We'll visit 3 popular tourist spots in the center of Shizuoka City. First we’ll trace back the great achievements of the first shogun, Ieyasu Tokugawa at Sumpu Castle where he spent his last days. It contains two reconstructed arsenal buildings, the eastern gate, and the Momijiyama Japanese garden where you can casually enjoy a cup of Shizuoka green tea. Then we’ll visit Sengen Shinto Shrine which was rebuilt by his grandson Iemitsu, the third shogun. On the way to the shrine, you will have a chance to shop for traditional arts and crafts as well as some Japanese sweets. Our final destination is Shizuoka Hobby Square. As “the World Capital of Models”, our city is proud of the various hobby manufactures. In an official shop, you can buy your favorite figures. Let’s explore old and new Shizuoka together!

Hello, I'm Setsuko!
I was born in Shizuoka, home of Mt. Fuji, and have lived here all my life. It is a very attractive local city located in the middle of Japan. It takes about only one hour from here to Tokyo by the super express Shinkansen. I’d like to introduce you to some historical places related to the first shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, as well as green tea, citrus fruits, fresh seafood, arts and crafts and modern hobby manufactures. Let’s visit scenic spots on the base of Mt. Fuji together. People in Shizuoka are very friendly and welcome guests from overseas. Why don’t we share a wonderful time here in Shizuoka?

“ Great tour in Shimuzu ”

Setsuko was waiting at the cruise pier for our group of 6. We went to the water falls, shrine/temple and a Sake brewery. The weather did not cooperate for a site of Mt. Fuji however she emailed me photos she had taken on previous trips. Great information and also taught us origami. Highly recommend her! She also arranged the transport for our group.

“ Enjoyed Our Tour ”

We had a very enjoyable tour with Setsuko. She customized the tour to suit our personal interests and gave us a detailed itinerary prior to the tour. She arrived on time and met us beside the ship. We traveled by city bus to the Mino Pine Groves and the nearby shrine and beach. Then we went to the Marine Science Museum where we watched demonstrations of the mechanical fish they are using to study how fish swim. Finally we crossed the bay in a water ferry, spent a few minutes inside the fish market, and arrived back at our ship on time. Unfortunately, Mt. Fuji was not visible because of the rain. Setsuko speaks good English and is very knowledgeable about the religious customs at the shrines. She had prepared several small gifts for us - postcards, pins, and some origami birds. Although at times she walked a bit too quickly for us (we are seniors), it was clear that she had prepared very thoroughly for the tour and did everything to make it a good day for us. All in all, we were very pleased with the tour.

“ Outstanding guide ”

Setsuko was one of the best tour guides we had during our vacation to Japan. Her English was very good and was very passionate in describing the many places we visited and gave a real personal touch. Everything was well organized before our tour where she explained thoroughly what we could see and the costs. Setsuko provided us with many other pieces of information about what we were to see which was very informative. I would definitely recommend Setsuko as guide for your next tour.

“ An Amazing Day in Shizuoka ”

Words are not enough to express the experience we had in Shizuoka with Setsuko. She is so knowledgeable and proud of her community and culture and wants everyone to feel her enthusiasm. She arranged a traditional Japanese lunch which was above and beyond our expectations. She showed us sights (double blossom cherry trees) that were not scheduled on our itinerary, but were places that were her favorites and became ours, too. She kept our diverse group of eight entertained throughout the tour. She arranged taxi services and the driver, Haromi, was terrific. We are so appreciative of our time in Shizuoka!
