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.

“ One of the best tour I've had ”

Hiroyo is very friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive guide. She not only took us to beautiful tea farm and wholesaler, she showed us many things around Shizuoka, teach us many new tea facts, translated our discussion with the people we meet, and always on her toes to notify everyone what is going on next. Even took us for ice-cream even though it was not on the itinerary. Very sweet lady and highly recommend her guiding service.

Hiroyo:

Dear Bena, Thank you for your kind message! I'm really happy to hear from you!! It was a great day for me to welcome you and your family here in the begining of the new year. As you know, Shizuoka is the No.1 tea producer in Japan and there are more interesting places and also more other places to enjoy. I hope you'll have another opportunity to visit Shizuoka. I'll always welcome you. Thank you so much!! Best wishes, Hiroyo

“ Wonderful experience ”

Hiroyo is a very friendly and well-informed guide. We are very pleased and enjoyed our trip with her. She told us a little bit of Japan History, and teach us a LOT of Japanese tea and production processing. She taught us 2 Japanese songs and translated them so we could sing together. At the end of our trip, she brought us to try Japanese "cha-ffle", a light and very refreshing snacks. Very recommended guide 👍👍👍

Hiroyo:

Thank you very much for your warm message! I'm really happy to hear from you. It was a good opportunity for me to spend the day with you! I hope you can enjoy the rest of your stay in Japan and also you'll have another chance to visit here. Shizuoka has more to visit and enjoy. I'm always happy to welcome you!! Thank you!! Hiroyo

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

“ 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
