About

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!

“ Tea Tour in Shizuoka ”

I had the pleasure of taking a custom tea tour with Hiroyo. I have a tea business and the purpose of my trip was to visit a tea farm and learn the manufacturing process. Hiroyo was very knowledgeable and was able to explain the different steps of Japanese tea manufacturing. It was exactly what I wanted to experience and I am glad I was able to find Hiroyo to guide me through Shizuoka. Thank you!

“ Visiting Shizouka and Fuji ”

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.

“ Mt Fiji tea farm, shrine and sake brewery tour ”

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.
