Hello, I'm Setsuko!
I was born in Shizuoka, home of Mt. Fuji, and have lived here all my life. It is a very attractive local city located in the middle of Japan. It takes about only one hour from here to Tokyo by the super express Shinkansen. I’d like to introduce you to some historical places related to the first shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, as well as green tea, citrus fruits, fresh seafood, arts and crafts and modern hobby manufactures. Let’s visit scenic spots on the base of Mt. Fuji together. People in Shizuoka are very friendly and welcome guests from overseas. Why don’t we share a wonderful time here in Shizuoka?

“ Trip of a lifetime ”

Our group of 10 had a wonderful day touring and learned so much, while at the same time being entertained and educated by Setsuko. Thank you for helping make our trip memorable!

“ An Amazing Day in Shizuoka ”

Words are not enough to express the experience we had in Shizuoka with Setsuko. She is so knowledgeable and proud of her community and culture and wants everyone to feel her enthusiasm. She arranged a traditional Japanese lunch which was above and beyond our expectations. She showed us sights (double blossom cherry trees) that were not scheduled on our itinerary, but were places that were her favorites and became ours, too. She kept our diverse group of eight entertained throughout the tour. She arranged taxi services and the driver, Haromi, was terrific. We are so appreciative of our time in Shizuoka!
