Shizuoka is a prefecture of Japan located in the Chubu region of Honshu. It is the home to the Majestic Mount Fuji, the sakura shrimp harvested only in Suruga Bay and best known as the Japan’s green tea capital.
Situated on Suruga Bay between Tokyo and Nagoya, Shizuoka is Tokyo’s best getaway boasting a combination of traditional and modern sights. Visit the well-preserved Utsunoya on the old Tokaido route. Take a stroll at Miho no Matsubara, a 7km-long stretch of pine trees lined with jet black volcanic rock sand offering arguably Japan’s best of view of Mount Fuji. Try the Shizuoka’s wasabi, the best in the world. A stay in one of the recommended properties with unparalleled view of the majestic mountain. And not forgetting to catch the early blooming sakura of Kawazu.
