      Excellent tour of Mt. Fuji !
      Michiko was a wonderful tour guide. We loved seeing Mt Fuji and the waterfalls nearby. Michiko taught us a lot and she also took us for a great lunch. I would highly recommend!

      Rain or shine, have a great time!
      Our trip was so informative. Hiroko was so engaging and pleasant to be with for the day. Even though we had a rainy day and Mount Fuji was clouded most of the day, the trip was well worth it. The places we went to are beautiful in the rain as well as the sunshine. Hiroko rounded out the gorgeous scenery with her wealth of information, and she made it fun as well. We really enjoyed our day with this tour company.

      A brilliant personalised and flexible tour of Shizuoka
      The booking process was seamless and very responsive. I was kept up to date with any changes to the tour guide and arrangements for meeting on the day. As we arrived by cruise they were also considerate of changes to our arrival time etc. On arrival, Hirokane was waiting as promised with a bright yellow jacket (which was quite the commitment given it was 32 degrees). Shortly afterwards we were introduced to our driver and tour guide. Immediately they ran through the plan of action and checked we were happy. The tour itself was brilliant but was made even better by the hospitality and kindness from Motoko and Mr Uchida. The organisation was excellent and as we did a private tour we could spend as long or as little as we liked in places. When we had shown an interest in a particular shrine, they used their knowledge of the area to take us to a more private and local shrine which shared alot of similar features. This was not included in the original tour plan but just showed one example of the flexibility and personalisation that we experienced on this tour. We would strongly recommend using this company, and we will definitely be using them again on our next visit.

      Lovely area with lakeside walk
      Fabulous place. Unable to see the majesty of Fuji, but the walk around the lake is wonderful. An easy walk. With lots of beauty. Well worth the visit

      Terrific Day with a Terrific Guide!
      We booked this tour for four people because we wanted to see sights without being shuttled on and off a tour bus with a crowd of people. We chose well! Our guide, Miyuki, met us at Shimizu Marine Terminal where our cruise docked. We drove to the Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine where Miyuki showed us the purification ritual, shared the significance of different parts of the Shrine area, and helped us find some cool photo opps. We followed the Shrine with a break in a nearby courtyard with tasty local snacks and drinks, then off to Shiraito Falls. We had some nice views of Mt. Fuji and the two waterfalls were beautiful. Our last stop was Lake Tanuki. We had a few clouds, but still some visibility of Mt. Fuji. On a great day, the views here would be fantastic. The park surrounding the lake is spacious and was full of campers the day we were there. There was nothing resembling a crowd anywhere and we had a great time strolling, taking in the natural beauty and getting to see some normal Japanese life. On the drive back to port, Miyuki talked about Japanese history and culture, taught us origami and answered our random tourist questions. She was excellent every step of the way, from coordinating itinerary changes on the fly to giving us fundamental information about each stop we made. Great day and highly recommend this excursion!

      Mount Fuiji was kind!
      I booked a private tour with Local Travel Partners back in May for our upcoming November visit. I had the pleasure to communicate with Hirokane throughout the porcess. The four of us had an English speaking driver and his car. Although, he was quiet, neverthless he was quite knowledgeable. As promised, both the driver and Hirokane met us at the port (we were a tad early) and away we went. On the way to see Lake Ashi and the waterfalls, the skies were just starting to clear. At the first viewing point for Mt. Fuji, it was cloudy and we can only make out the top of the mt. As the day progressed, Mt. Fuji was kind to us and revealed herself fully, to the clicking of cameras! It was great that we were able to view this spectucular sight from multiple vantage points that were not overrunned by tourists. He took us to the right places. Japan tour comanies are hard to find, and this one is the one to go with

      Wonderful day tour in Shimizu with Local Travel Partners
      My husband and I were making a cruise around Japan and like private or small groups for visiting.As everyone goes to visit Hakone and the hot springs we preferred to watch Mt Fuji from another angle and much less crowded. Through Local Travel Partners we hired an English speaking driver and his car. Via email I communicated with Hirokane Ishikaki, who was always very quick to answer ( before our trip, during and even afterwards), is kind, very professional and efficient. He did is utmost best to understand and meet our needs while being one day in Shimizu. Our driver drove us around in a very safe and gentleman manner. We were not disappointed to book this tour. You can accommodate and decide what to visit.We chose Lake Ashi and the Waterfalls and were not disappointed as they are breathtaking and much less crowded than the other places. Hirokane was there to greet us at the cruise terminal and then introduced us to our driver, who was really nice.We were super lucky with the weather and got to see Mt Fuji completely which is not often. We had a marvelous day and really recommend that you book with Local Travel Partners.

      Incredible 2 Days at Mt. Fuji
      We booked a 2 day tour with Local Travel Partners in the Shizuoka area - the first tour with incredible views of Mt. Fuji at Lake Tanuki, Shiraito Falls, and the Fujisan Hongu Segen Shrine and the second tour seeing Miho Pine Tree Grove, the Nihondaira plateau via a ropeway (Gondola) and viewing the Kunozan Togoshu Shrine. Both tours were incredible and our driver, Mr. Tetsuya Nakazawa, was incredibly professional, friendly, and very patient with us which allowed us to take many photos - providing us time to be in the moment as we enjoyed the majesty of Mt. Fuji. These were truly the most memorable 2 days of our trip to Japan. As an unexpected plus, Tetsuya presented us with an SD card of photos he took of us while we were touring. We knew he was taking pictures but didn’t realize he took 101 photos! It’s not common to have your entire group in the photo as we are always taking photos of each other. This was above and beyond our expectations! Arranging the tours with Mr. Hirokane Ishikaki was very quick, detailed, and flexible, providing us various options while planning our itineraries. There were never any surprises and communication was professional. He even met us at the start of our tours to ensure everything was ok. I highly recommend this company for tours in the Mt. Fuji area - they’re local and experts in the area, and they’ll help you beat the crowds to capture incredible memories!

      Bikes and sights
      I absolutely loved this tour! My three male travel companions were not as enthusiastic about the prospect of a bike tour however really enjoyed it - much to their surprise. It was a real pleasure to see some sights outside of downtown as well as get some fresh air and exercise to burn off a few soba noodles :) I especially treasured the insights from Hero who showed us where he grew up, where his mate’s cafe is, and where he played mahjong as a teenager. It was great to help imagine “real life” in Shizuoka. Thank you so much, we’ll definitely be in touch if we travel to the region again (fingers crossed!).

      A day in Shimizu and Shizuoka Japan
      Arrival Shimizu Port was via cruise ship. Through Local Travel Partners I hired an English speaking driver and his car. Via email I communicated with Hirokane Ishikaki. I explained our interest in hiring an English speaking driver and car to transport us to the multiple places which we were interested in seeing in Shimizu and in Shizuoka during the 9 hours we would be in port. we met Hirokane at their mbooth located in the port by the ship. He introduced us to our driver Terry Nakada who was personable, charming and professional. We visited The Kunozan Toshogu shrine and museum via the required Nihondaira Ropeway, stopped at the Greenpia Tea plantation to purchase tea and look at Mt. Fugi, visited Miho No Matsubara beach/pine forest and looked at Mt Fugi, visit Tokaido Hiroshige Museum, stopped at the Shimizu Fish Market and returned to the cruise port. We even had time to shop at the booths set up for the cruise ship passengers. Shimizu can be quite proud of the port booth purveyors and the very nice quality local products offered. Hirokane (Local Travel Partners) was beyond helpful in understanding our needs and goals while in Shimizu for one day and Terry Nakada was excellent as a driver and gentleman. I highly recommend Local Travel Partners without reservation.

      Convenient, comprehensive and affordable half-day tour
      We arranged a private half-day taxi tour for two people well ahead of our cruise ship's stop in Shimuzu (the port for Shizuoka). Our driver, who spoke English, was waiting at the dock when our ship arrived. He went above and beyond the duties of a driver, taking us to everything included on two of our ship's large group excursions and even accompanying us as we visited them -- all for considerably less than the ship's versions. He was consistently friendly, polite and helpful. Our visit to the Kunozan Toshogu Shrine happened to coincide with an important ceremony, so we were able to watch and listen to some local pageantry, again aided by explanations from our driver. Note: if you arranged this trip with 3 or 4 people, it would be even more affordable. Hirokane was quite responsive and helpful via e-mail in advance of our visit.

      Excellent Cruise Tour to Mt. Fuji, Waterfalls and Shrine
      Mr. Hirokane and Mr Ryo were so helpful with our travel arrangements. They speak very good English and kept us informed of the weather and tour guide days/weeks before our arrival. Our guide Mr. Ryo was instantly recognizable in the yellow jacket. Mr. Ryo was very knowledgeable about the tour stops and found us a great spot for some delicious local Japanese food. They have delicious beef and local sake that our group really loved. I highly recommend using this tour service. 5 stars for sure!

      Perfect Cruise Stop Tour
      Prior to booking this tour, I exchanged a few emails with Hirokane who was extremely helpful. Whilst the tour was described as a taxi tour (ie. with no guide) our taxi driver, Terry, spoke very good English and was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He went out of his way to show us all there was to see. Unfortunately, the weather was quite overcast but we managed to get a few pictures of the peak of Mount Fuji. I would undoubtedly recommend this company to other travelers.

      Cruise ship private tour with Miyuki Suzuki
      Highly recommend LTP as we had a fantastic English speaking guide, Miyuki with her great driver. They both looked after us and took us to a green tea plantation and Yume terrace observatory with the view of Mount Fuji, Nihondaira Plateau, ropeway cable car to Kunozan Toshohu Shrine, Miho Pine tree grove and as we had a bit of time left over, Shimizu fish market and cherry blossoms at Shimizu Marine Park. Both Miyuki and her driver are a fantastic testament to Local Travel Partner.

      Fantastic service with lovely people
      Before travelling to Japan with Celebrity Millennium I made contact on the Cruise Critic website with an American lady and her travel companion.Like my partner and I they wanted to see Mount Fuji,the nearby waterfalls and temple.We made contact with the tour company and Hirokane made all the arrangements for us despite the fact that he was actually in Hamberg at a travel exhibition and we were in London and New York. On the day our driver Uchida met us at the port and drove us in the comfortable car up to the lake where we got excellent photos of Mount Fuji before the crowds arrived.We then moved on to the falls and temple with Uchida helping us all the way to get the most out of the day. He was a great driver and guide and we were very happy with our experience.

    We truly enjoyed our time with Kyla visiting the sights near Shimizu. Although it was a rainy day and we could not view Mt. Fuji, the time at the Heritage Center and other spots made up for it. Upon return to the port we actually caught a glimpse of Mt Fuji making for a perfect day.
