Shizuoka_Nihon Daira Plateau, Toshogu Shrine

I am an English guide in charge of
Nihon Daira Plateau, Toshogu Shrine, Ropeway ride & Ishigaki ichigo.


My proposal



  One hour shinkansen ride to the west is Shizuoka Station. From Shizuoka Station one hour bus ride will bring you to a plateau called Nihon Daira. The panoramic view of Mt. Fuji is magnificent from here. After the buffet lunch at the hotel, 10minute ropeway ride will bring you to the top of Mt. Kuno. Here lie a tomb of Tokugawa Ieyasu and other shrine buildings. The shrine buildings are decorated with colorfully painted wooden carvings. Descending from the mountain via stone steps, you will reach the coastal line of the Suruga Bay. Here lots of greenhouses growing strawberries utilizing the stone walls stand. You can enjoy huge and sweet strawberry picking in one of them in spring time.


  東海道新幹線 ひかりで西に1時間の静岡駅からバスで1時間 小高い日本平に着くと広々とした原が広がる。
平らな頂上から富士山のパノラマビューを堪能。 次にロープウェイに乗り久能山に登る。 400年前日本に太平の世を築いた徳川家康を祭る豪華絢爛な彫刻、採色の国宝久能山東照宮参拝。 1159段の石段を下り駿河湾岸に到着。 太平洋の海の香を吸いながら山の斜面を利用したイチゴの温室で大粒で甘いイチゴを食べ放題。


My personal information I would like to tell you



  Born in 1952 Female English teacher / Guide: National Guide Certificate holder, STEPtest 1Grade

I’ve been working as an English teacher all my life. After passing 60, I challenged to become a certified guide. In my free time I enjoy traveling not only around Japan but also around the world always with the help of guides. Just a small stone shines with the explanation given by guides. They really help travelers understand a lot about the place and culture. I really wish to entertain tourists with easy to understand explanations and make their trips most memorable and pleasant just like the guides I have met and have been helped by.


  女性 1952年生まれ 英会話講師 ガイド 通訳ガイド免状 英検一級

英語を教える仕事に長年携わってきました。 還暦を過ぎてから何か新しい仕事に挑戦したいとガイドの勉強を始めました。 旅行が趣味で国内外よく出かける際にはガイドを利用させてもらっています。 ガイドさんの説明があるから「ただの石」がとて意味のあるものとわかったりします。 旅はやはりガイドさんの役割が大きいですね。そんなわけで海外のお客様にわかりやすくそれぞれの地域の説明また日本の文化をおもてなしの心をもってお伝えしたいと思います。


Below is the sightseeing spot I provide the guiding service.

Ropeway ride—The ropeway is 1065meters long and connects between the Nihon Daira Plateau and Toshogu Shrine. On sunny days you can see Suruga Bay and Izu Peninsula in the distance. Beneath is Hell Valley with lots of greeneries.

久能山東照宮Toshogu Shrine—On top of Mt. Kuno (216meters) stands Toshogu Shrine. The main building is designated as a national treasure. The building is decorated with beautifully carved and colored wooden sculptures. The Toshogu Shrine enshrines Tokugawa Ieyasu who reigned Japan 400 years ago and established Tokugawa Shogunate which lasted for almost 250 peaceful years. There are his tomb, other shrine buildings and a museum. The colorful carvings can be a good match with Nikko Toshogu Shrine.

Ishigaki ichigo (Stone wall strawberries)—Strawberries grown in greenhouses utilizing stone walls taste extra sweet and huge in size. From January to May you can enjoy picking and eating strawberries as much as you want.
