Enjoy the local aspects

This is a dock to dock, 6-hour trip in local Shimizu area.
We will visit Toshogu shinto shrine, warshipping Ieyasu Tokugawa, the founder of 260 years long Tokugawa shogunate.
Right above the shrine is Nihondaira highland connected by scenic ropeway.
We also visit one of the local tea farm where you learn how Japanese tea is produced, with its farm land and processing factory by guided the owner who is highly echology conscious. Before going back, we stop by Miho-no-matsubara pine tree coast with Mt. Fuji figure if the weather is fine.

A bigger group more than 10 up to 19 can be conducted with a bigger vehicle (send me a message for a quote).

There is an option(no Sundays nor Saturdays due to heavy traffic) for longer stayover cruises. It is to go up Shin-go-gome(the new 5th stage) which is located on the south slope of Mt. Fuji. This option is available only when the weather is good and the road is accessible. When this
option is chosen, no other spots can be visited.
