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!

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.
We had a wonderful tour with Hiroyo! The visit to the tea farm and sake brewery were very informative and fun. Hiroyo made our visit very pleasurable even singing a couple of traditional Japanes songs :) I would definitely recommend this tour to those interested in knowing more about Japanese culture that you won't hear or see in the more touristy areas of Japan. Thanks Hiroyo for making our visit so pleasant.
Hiroyo was very accommodating, knowledge and helpful. All my family had a very good time with her I hieghly recommend her.
Hiroyo is a wonderful and engaged guide who we can highly recommend. Everything is well organized, she has an adorable personality and she can help you to get more familiar with the japanese culture and basic etikette.
We had a fantastic visit toShimizu, thanks entirely to our wonderful guide. Thanks again
