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.

“ 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.
