Since 2007 I have been an English-speaking tour guide, visiting most of the major sightseeing spots in Japan with international travelers. At the same time I have been working as an translator, mainly dealing with technical documents.
Shizuoka prefecture has a number of spots for sightseeing, but they have not been fully covered in English-language travel books or on the Internet. So, as a local tour guide, through the TripleLights services, I am hoping to introduce some of the attractiveness of this region to the international visitors.

“ top tour with top guide and top taxi driver ”

Koji picked us up at the port together with a very nice taxi driver. We booked a 5 hours tour but due to the beautiful weather conditions, Koji showed us during 6 hours so many nice and interesting places with an excellent English and lot of knowledge. We enjoyed this personalized tour very much and can only recommend Koji. Was a super be experience!

“ Shimizu Tour - Wheelchair Accessible ”

We enjoyed a great tour of Shimuzu organised for us by our tour guide Koji. Koji was extremely professional and very helpful in understanding the needs of someone in a wheelchair. My husband is a high functioning quadriplegic who uses a lightweight manual folding wheelchair. We appreciated the excellent communications prior to our tour from Koji- regarding our itinerary and our wheelchair access requirements and having informed Koji of our particular tour requirements, he organised a wheelchair accessible van with driver for our tour and planned a wheelchair accessible itinerary for us. Thankyou for a wonderful in Shimuzu. Peter & Suzy Hengstberger Australia

“ Our visit to Shimizu ”

Koji was a wonderful guide. During all the months that we were planning our day in Shimizu, he was always very responsive and flexible. He did everything in his power to show us all that we wanted to see. Koji was punctual on the day of the tour and was very thoughtful. He brought us water, umbrellas and towels because it was raining. He explained everything to us very well. His English is very understandable. I would recommend Koji to any of my friends who visit Shimizu. Thank you, Koji!
