What to Expect

Shizuoka is a city historically related to the Tokugawa shogun family. It was greatly developed when the first shogun of Edo feudal government, Ieyasu Tokugawa, came back to spend his last years. By walking around Shizuoka downtown area, we can trace his achievements.
We will visit the East gate, a part of Sumpu castle which was reconstructed in the mid 90s, a traditional Japanese garden with a tea house and Shizuoka Sengen Shrine which had been patronized by the Tokugawa family. Walking through a street to the Shrine will be great fun to find a “taste of the street”!
And there is a tea town(Chamachi) nearby which was created by Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa. There are many businesses engaged in the tea industry and this is the place where the largest amount of tea is traded in Japan.
Let’s trace back the history and enjoy Japan’s traditional and folklore cultures!

☆ If you are interested in other places in Shizuoka, I can add it to your itinerary.
Please don’t hesitate to ask.

Lovely lady with quite a few tricks up her sleeve to entertain her guests.

Hiroyo:

Thank you very much for your warm message! The goddess of Mt. Fuji was shy yesterday, but I hope she will appear next time you visit. I hope that you will enjoy the rest of your trip in Japan!! Best wishes, Hiroyo

“ Hiroyo is an Amazing Tour Guide ”

We had a wonderful experience visiting the tea farm etc. because of Hiroyo. She was very accommodating. She patiently explained to us everything we needed to know, waited for us to take photos and buy souvenirs, and also moved at a slower pace since my mother was on a wheelchair. We will definitely recommend her to our friends.

Hiroyo:

Hello Velerie! Thank you very much for your review! I'm very happy to hear from you and to know that you and your family enjoy the tour. I hope you have another chance to come to Japan. Shizuoka has more places to see, visit and enjoy. I'll always welcome you! Thank you so much!! Hiroyo

“ Highly Recommended for Tea! ”

I had a marvelous experience with Hiroyo, and I would recommend her service to anyone looking to learn more about teas offered from the Shizuoka region. It was clear that Hiroyo has done her research thoroughly, and I had the opportunity to visit a well thought out list of tea farms. She was able to translate from English to Japanese and vice versa effectively and efficiently, and I'm very happy about the other tea related activities that she recommended, such as touring the tea museum and having matcha flavored ice cream, which was all very entertaining. Always punctual, professional, and courteous, I would highly recommend Hiroyo!

Hiroyo:

Hello Betsy, Thank you very much for your review!! I’m very happy to hear from you and to know that you enjoyed the teat tour here in Shizuoka! It is always my great pleasure if I can be any help for guests. I also enjoyed myself to be with you. Shizuoka is the best destination to discover Japanese tea, as it is the No. 1 tea producer in Japan. I’ll always welcome you to have such a tour including off-the-beaten places. Thank you! Hiroyo

“ Group Guide - Tea farm/Wasabi ”

Hiroyo was an excellent guide. She was able to organise a private van for our group 8pax and customised our tour to suit our interest. We loved the flexibility and enjoyed the activities very much.

Hiroyo:

Hello Jasper! Thank you very much for the review for me! I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed the tour. It was a good day for me as well to be a guide of your group. I hope you'll have another visit to Japan! Thank you!! Best wishes, Hiroyo
