Shimizu port taxis?

are taxis expensive or hard to find at Shimizu port and surrounding areas?

I google and found the travel time for the port to Miho beach/Nihondaira/KUNOZAN TOSHOGU SHRINE are all about 20 minutes by taxi.

One tour company charges per taxi 22000 yens to arrange for transportation but no guide.Is this a fair price?

Would it be cheaper to hail a taxi for all three segments 20+20+20 minutes ?

Thanks

Are there taxi's at the Shimizu port? Will they fit FOUR people (no luggage)? Estimated cost to get to Tokugawa Shrine? Estimated cost to get to Toshugo Shrine? (We haven't decided which of these we are going to visit.)

I never needed to deal with Shimuzu Port. Our ship isn't using it - my mistake from the beginning and I regret bothering the generous posters here with a dumb question.

But FYI - As a group of four, when we leave the ship, we are using an AirportExpress minivan to go from Oi Marine Terminal in Tokyo to Haneda Airport for about $100 USD.

As a group of two, we are going from Asakusa to the Osanbashi, Yokohama Port using public transportation.
