Enjoy the tea country


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.
Wealso visit one of the local tea farm where you lean how Japanese tea is produced, with its farm land and processing factory by guided by the owner who is highly echology conscious. Before going back, we stop by Miho-no-matsubara pine tree coast with Mr. Fuji figure if the weather is right.

Chartered van cost is not included in my tour price. A bigger group more than 7 up to 19 can be conducted with a bigger bus with higher quote.
There is an option(no Sundays nor Saturdays due to heavy traffic) for longer stayover cruises. It is to go up to 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
