I live in Izunokuni-city, just 1. 5 hours from Tokyo, surrounded by beautiful seas , and with the land surrounding one truly amazing Mountain: Mt. Fuji. (actually I see Mt. Fuji from my window. )
I do guiding not only in this area, but also most of the places in Japan such as Tokyo, Nikoo, Kamakura, Hakone, Shizuoka (shimizu port), Takayama, Hida, kanazawa, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima, Himeji and so on for FIT, VIP and any group guests.
I have traveled 38 countries, having lived in Perth, Australia and Barcelona Spain, which have helped to open my mind, understanding different cultures and ways of thinking. And I would like you to experience what you can see and do in Japan!
Here in my area, you do unique cultural experiences: Japanese tea picking in a beautiful tea field overlooking Mt. Fuji, and after that you can enjoy Hot spring!!!
Also I can take you to a deep into the mountains to visit natural "Wasabi field" and have lunch at Local sushi restaurant.
For cruising guests, I organize 4-6 hours tours, visiting "Miho Pine grove", one of the sites of Mt. Fuji world heritage, Toshogu shrine, Ando Hiroshige museum (the world famous wood print artist), and even a trip to Lake Kawaguchi and Hakone (depending on the time permitted).
It is my pleasure to make your trip happy, memorable and fun.
So please do not hesitate to ask me . I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you very much.
A Recent Review of this guide
Hiroko had a great knowledge of the local area including in-depth knowledge of the history and cultural heritage. She took us to major highlights, but also showed us much of the ordinary residential and commercial areas. Her English was excellent and she was very caring and patient with my husband who had trouble negotiation the many steps at the Shrine. She even went to the trouble of giving us home made postcards of Mt.Fiji and some paper origami of Mt. Fuji. We definite recommend Hiroko to everyone
