Welcome to Shizuoka in the central area of Japan.

I was born in Hakone , Kanagawa Pref. and grew up in Izu Peninsula, also studied English in Kanagawa University in Yokohama.
After graduation, I have traveled a lot of countries such as Europe, U,S.,Asia and lived in Australia for a year. I had a great time to visit there to have wonderful experience .

So I decided to become a licensed tour guide for introducing Japan to foreign tourists.
Now I live in Izu which is close to Mt.Fuji and Hakone.
I'm interested in Arts, Hot Springs, traditional places and of course delicious food.
I would like introduce beautiful Izu which have lots of Geo park sites and traditional Hot spring resort "Shuzenji, Nagaoka, and so on.

Please Enjoy this area together!!

“ Fish market Numazu ”

Yasuko our guide picked us up at our hotel and escorted us to the Numazu fish market. The tour and especially the very interesting discussion at the end with the fish buyer stay in good memory. We really enjoyed the the morning together with her. Thank you so much Yasuko-san.

“ Welcome to Japan ”

Yasuko our guide travelled to the Hotel to meet us and then escorted us to Tokyo. But before we started I wanted to purchase a camera. Yasuko even helped with the purchase! We then set off on our tour and visited the main shrines and temples, these alone were truly inspiring. We managed to cover quite a large area using the train and water boats .This would have taken us longer if we didn’t have Yasuko. The whole day was truly fabulous, this was down to Yasuko. A million thanks for a very nice day.

“ Very good, very interesting and very conscientious ”

Have clear what interests you, and Yasuko will work out a route for you. We visited a really nice sake brewery that is a must if you go in that direction, and despite the cloud covering Mt Fuji, we really enjoyed the day with her - and she gave us some really nice photos of our ship arriving in Shimizu with Fuji-san in the background!
