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!
