About

I am Fumie Ueda, a National Government Licensed Guide Interpreter in Atami, Shizuoka, only 50 minutes away from Tokyo by Shinkansen trains.

Atami is conveniently located at the foot of the Hakone mountains, and the base of the Izu Peninsula. It is also close to Mt. Fuji and the Shimizu Port in Shizuoka. I am excited to show you around beautiful places that I love.

I grew up in Yokohama, spent 1 year as a high school exchange student in Allentown, PA in the US, went to college and lived/worked in Tokyo for about 10 years before coming to this beautiful onsen resort.

After becoming a guide, I met with guests from various backgrounds, and I feel grateful once again, for my experience to be exposed to different cultures in my youth.

Let’s have a good time together!

“ A wonderful day in Shimizu with Fumie ”

My wife and I and our friends were on a Viking cruise and stopped at the port of Shimizu. Fortunately for us the cruise ship was staying overnight in Shimizu and we were able to book an eight hour tour. Fumie met us at the cruise port at 9 AM. Fumie had arranged for a private car and driver for the four of us to visit a tea plantation, have a delicious lunch in a "farm to table" restaurant, go to the World Heritage site and museum of Mt. Fuji, visit the waterfalls by Mt. Fuji and taste sake at a sake factory. It was a busy day but because we were a small group we did a lot. Fumie is truly a professional. She offered us options on things to do in and around Mt. Fuji. Her English and her personality are excellent and she gave us insights into the people of Japan. She respect... read more

Fumie:

Thank you, Roger-san, for the great words on me. It was a pleasure serving your team and I hope you will come back in the future. Wishing you the best, Fumie

“ One day Hakone trip ”

Our journey to Hakone was a great one. We had 13 people in our troop with kids, seniors, adults etc. She managed the group very well, helped all of us stay on time and made sure that we covered all things that were discussed when the booking was made. The original ropeway was closed for volcanic activity and she was very efficient in changing our itenary so that we could still do an alternate ropeway and enjoy the same things that we had originally planned for. I will totally recommend anyone to appoint Fumie as their guide. Thanks again Fumie.

Fumie:

Thank you, Deepa-san, for letting me help your extended-family trip. I hope you enjoyed the trip as much as to make you want to come back to Japan sometime in the future. I hope you and your big family will be happy and prosperous as ever.

“ If you want customized fuji experience, go with Fumie! ”

Fumie planned a most delightful day for our group of 10. She went to great lengths before and during our tour to ensure there was something for everyone. We exchanged several messages and she integrated all of the info i gave her about the ages and personalities of our group members into an inpeccably planned customized experience. She even took on connecting us with charter bus company. I cant sufficiently express our gratitude - the day was perfect.

Fumie:

Hi Paul-san. Thank you so much for very quick and good review. You were a fantastic leader of your team. Mt. Fuji even smiled to you despite rainy/cloudy weather forecast. I wish every one of you good luck during the rest of your trip and life ahead!

“ Looking for the PERFECT guide for Mt. Fuji? Choose Fumie! ”

3 senior couples had an amazing day with Fumie while our ship was in Shimizu. We had the perfect view of Mt. Fuji from Lake Tanuki. We were amazed at the beauty of Shiraito no Taki Waterfalls and Otodome no Taki Waterfalls. Fumie guided us through the Sengentaisha Shrine and our final destination was the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center. Fumie is very charming, proud of her county, speaks excellent English and knows the perfect angles for the perfect photographs. Thanks Fumie for a great day.

Fumie:

Thank you, Claudia-san, for taking your time to write such a superb comment on me. You have a great family and friends! I wish continued good health and happiness to you all!
