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.

Hello, I’m Hiroyo. I was born and brought up in Shizuoka. After living in Tokyo and in England, eventually I came back to Shizuoka. It is really a good place to live.
I have been interested in Japanese traditional culture. I used to be in a Kendo(Japanese fencing) club and a Japanese flower arrangement club when I was a student. I got a degree of Sho-dan(first-dan) in Kendo, and a diploma in follower arrangement. I also got a certificate as a Japanese tea instructor. It would be my great pleasure to help you find out more about Japanese culture.
Shizuoka is a lovely place to visit. It has many historical sites, traditional culture, abundant nature and a wide variety of local specialties including green tea, wasabi, many kinds of fruits and sea food fresh from the sea! You will be sure to enjoy them. Hope to see you here in Shizuoka!
