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!

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!
