Visit a town - the first Tokugawa Shogun created


I'm always happy to welcome cruise passengers visiting Shimizu Port as a local guide! We'll charter a taxi and I will come up with a tour plan according to your interest and request.

Shizuoka Sengen Shrine had been patronized by many powerful lords from ancient times including the Tokugawa Shogun family.
By walking around Shizuoka downtown area, we can trace back the history.

The Sumpu Castle park was a residence for Shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa. Although the castle was demolished in the middle of the 19th century, the gates and towers were reconstructed as they used to look and opened to the public. There is also a Japanese garden with a tea house. You can enjoy a cup of tea if you like.

The largest amount of tea has been traded in "Chamachi" or tea town in Shizuoka. One of the tea wholesalers or tea shops can be an alternative destination depending on your request.
Another destination is a tea farm visit, which can be an exclusive tour for tea lovers.

Other alternatives are available.
