A Quintessentially Japanese Experience

Breathtaking panoramas of the iconic peak rising against the horizon can be enjoyed from a great number of locations, creating an awe-inspiring backdrop for your travel memories and making it the perfect addition to your itinerary.

But the beauty doesn’t end there, Shizuoka boasts more than just picturesque landscapes. Immerse yourself in a tea-picking experience amid the prefecture’s serene plantations and enjoy the peaceful ambience and spectacular vistas with a freshly brewed cup in hand. Or enjoy a fascinating trip to the unique wasabi fields, where the pungent green plant thrives in the region’s pristine, crystal-clear waters.

For adventure enthusiasts, Shizuoka offers exciting cycling routes through stunning countryside scenery and charming townscapes. Travelers can explore dramatic coastlines as well as historical sites, offering a glimpse into Japan’s rich heritage and after a day of eventful explorations, they can refresh and rejuvenate their senses at the soothing hot springs, where the therapeutic waters help unwind both body and mind.

With its natural wonders and diverse activities, Shizouka Prefecture is the perfect stopover between the cultural allure of Tokyo and Kyoto. For more information and bookings, get in touch with our reservation team in Japan at: [email protected]
