Tea fields with Mt Fuji in the background in Shizuoka, Japan

Shizuoka Travel Guide

Shizuoka Prefecture | Travel Guide

Shizuoka prefecture between Tokyo and Osaka has a lot to offer to those who are traveling to Japan.  One of Japan’s most famous icons, Mt. Fuji, is located in Shizuoka. But as you will be able to see in this travel guide, that is not all that the area has to offer.

The Izu Peninsula boasts some amazing natural highlights that will make visitors feel like they are in a subtropical region. There are not only many health-boosting natural hot spring areas, but the beaches and oceans are reminiscent of Okinawa between spring and fall. And if that is not enough yet, some of the best cherry blossom viewing in Japan can be done in Kawazu where the flowers bloom early between February and March.
