Greeting from Izu ,shizuoka prefecture, a city just 1.5 hours from Tokyo. I am Hiroko Inamura, a national licensed tour guide. I was born in Numazu and live in Nirayama, located at north part of Izu Peninsula, surrounded by beautiful seas and mountains, and at the top of it all, Mt.Fuji: a truly lovely and amazing Mountain.
I am lucky to see Mt.Fuji from my room everyday !
Since I studied and lived in Perth, Australia and Barcelona, Spain, and traveled over 35 countries, I am fluent in English and do speak Spanish that is very useful fie me to communicate with guests from abroad.
I love travelling and look for something different and special to introduce for my guests that they haven't experienced before.
Izu is the place if you want something more! And yet we Japanese seem to have kept it to ourselves: you see only few foreign visitors here!
Visiting the top and center of Izu areas, you constantly meet Japanese traditional and rural world , visit to a wasabi water-field, it's great fun!- and you can experience "wasabi picking " or "wasabi pickle making " during the season, you can do "Japanese tea picking" , ,wearing the special traditional tea picking Kimono! There are many more attractive sits such as Banjo Fall, Joren fall in Amagi and lots more to make your day memorable.
This area is great during the seasons of autumn leaves and cherry blossom.
And what you can't miss our on is a visit to the oldest hot-springs resort in Izu: the really beautiful Shuzenji. Walking around the town , , ,exploring historical and traditional sits and the grate Bamboo Grove Path remind you of "the good old days".
This is the town described as "the little Kyoto "and designated as one of the best visiting place in Japan by the Michelin guide book.
I have just mentioned a few of many other attractive places in this area .
I am very happy to introduce you what you can see,do and eat here in Izu and its surrounding areas and I promise you to have wonderful memories !

Licensed guides have passed tough examinations and are highly knowledgeable about the history and places that feature in their tours. In Japan, unlicensed guides are operating illegally, and are therefore considered to be of lesser quality to licensed guides, who carry official registration cards which represent professionalism and legalit
