Details

Kid Friendly: No.

Friendly: No.
As for Miho Pine grove, it might be difficult to go closer to the shore on a wheelchair since it is sandy and getting to the main hall of Tosyogu shrine, this might also be difficult to get to the top, as there are many steps. However, this does not mean that you can not go.
I believe that it is very important that all my guests enjoy the tour, helping each other. So please do not worry!!! we can enjoy together!

A Recent Review of this tour

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
