What to Expect
・It takes about 60 minutes from Shimizu Port by car to reach the main area of the tour. Since we get very close to Mt. Fuji, we can see it prominently in front of us if the weather is fine. (But please do not hold high expectations for viewing Mt. Fuji because we can not see it well when the weather is bad.)
・At Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha, the guide will tell you how this beautiful World Heritage shrine has been closely related to Mt. Fuji since ancient times.
・Shiraito Falls is also one of the highlights of this area. Mt. Fuji's ground water gushes out from the rock layers, which is a wonderful sight to see.
・If you are interested in sake (Japanese rice wine) or Japanese-style green tea, it is possible for me to book either a free brewery tour, including free tasting, at a sake brewery, or a casual-style tea-drinking session at a green tea farm.
・Lake Tanuki is also optional. If the weather is fine, you might have a chance to see the famous "postcard-like view" of Mt. Fuji and its reflection on the lake.
・If it rains and Mt. Fuji is barely visible, one of my recommendations would be a visit to the Mt. Fuji World Heritage Centre, Shizuoka, where you can learn Mt. Fuji's fascinating history and simulate climbing it.
