Shizuoka is the prefecture that houses Japan’s best summit, Mt. Fuji. There are a lot of stations on the Tokaido Shinkansen Line that ties Tokyo and Osaka together, so it is popular to take a day trip from Tokyo. Izu, Atami, and other cities around the eastern part of the prefecture have onsens (hot springs), and the area around Mt. Fuji lets one enjoy breathtaking scenery. Miho-no-Matsubara, a World Heritage Site, is another must-see. While you should definitely visit the coastal area for fresh sushi if you want to enjoy food, it is also recommended to try dishes with unagi (freshwater eel), as well as Hamamatsu Gyoza. We will introduce information on some recommended sightseeing spots, dishes, accommodations in Shizuoka Prefecture.
