Shizuoka

Majestic Mount Fuji, rolling hills of green tea plantations, and the gorgeous coastline of the Izu Peninsula give Shizuoka a rich character that makes it a great destination for touring, exploring and making memories. The beachside community of Shimoda is a great place to get in touch with a slower lifestyle, relaxing on white sand beaches, hiking, and visiting local shops and restaurants. More green tea is grown in this prefecture than anywhere else in Japan and you can even try your hand at picking tea and learning about all the different types. The saltwater Lake Hamanako boasts world class hot springs, fishing and water sports, and the capital Shizuoka city has world-class​ art museums and a rich history.
