What to Expect

We'll visit 3 popular tourist spots in Shimizu Ward of Shizuoka City. First we’ll visit the Kuno Toshogu Shrine via a ropeway from Nippondaira Hill. This shrine was built by the second shogun, Hidetada Tokugawa, to commemorate his father, Ieyasu Tokugawa, the first shogun of the Edo Period (1603-1869).The buildings are covered with beautiful elaborate carvings and sculptures that were designated as a national treasure in 2012. Next we’ll move to the observatory deck on the hill. From here you can look over Shimizu Seaport, Suruga Bay and Izu Peninsula. It’s a perfect time to take photographs of the magnificent Mt. Fuji with green tea fields and mandarin orange orchards in the foreground. Our final destination is Miho-no-Matsubara, where more than 30,000 pine trees extend about 7km along the seashore. I’ll tell you the famous legend “Hagoromo Story” at this pine grove. Let’s go and explore these historic places; you can take lots of nice pictures!

Hello, I'm Setsuko!
I was born in Shizuoka, home of Mt. Fuji, and have lived here all my life. It is a very attractive local city located in the middle of Japan. It takes about only one hour from here to Tokyo by the super express Shinkansen. I’d like to introduce you to some historical places related to the first shogun Ieyasu Tokugawa, as well as green tea, citrus fruits, fresh seafood, arts and crafts and modern hobby manufactures. Let’s visit scenic spots on the base of Mt. Fuji together. People in Shizuoka are very friendly and welcome guests from overseas. Why don’t we share a wonderful time here in Shizuoka?
