I am Fumie, 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!

Fumie is very proficient in English and she is a very responsible and attentive tour guide. She understood my preference and was able to come up with an excellent itinerary catering to my family needs (with 2 teenagers and a child) with short notice. A thoroughly enjoyable day trip.
E-san, It was a great pleasure for me to guide such a wonderful warm family and thank you very much for your compliment. I hope you had a good time making food samples, preparing matcha for your selves, and walking in a Japanese garden. I wish all the best for your family.
Fumie did an amazing job of tailoring our tours to things of interest for my mom and myself. Her English (written and spoken) is outstanding and she has a great personality- we thoroughly enjoyed our time with her! She even went above and beyond to help us out when we needed an extra suitcase to get all our souvenirs home!
Thank you, Susan, for your flattering review. You and your mom were my wonderful guests and I hope you will enjoy your life back home and traveling anywhere in the future.
