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!

We spent a wonderful day with Hiroyo tea sight seeing in Shizuoka. Even though the tour was in December we still had much fun visiting the World Tea Museum and a local tea factory. Hiroyo has excellent knowledge about tea and Shizuoka, and she is a great communicator so it really made for a wonderful tour!
Hiroyo-san was very helpful and patient, responding in a timely manner to all my questions as I was trying to decide which tour to take. During the tour, she also explained the history of the places we visited using helpful aids (such as illustrations). She was also very entertaining. Last but not least, she was very flexible in accommodating my mom's request for additional stop at the end of our tour.
Shizuoka is the No. 1 Tea producer in Japan. We will visit two tea-related facilities on this tour. They are located in Makinohara plateau, the largest tea plantation area in Japan.
