While away a satisfying holiday with hot springs, delicious food and plenty of other activities, looking out at Japan's most famous mountain.

"Why not enjoy a vacation right in Mount Fuji’s back yard? Shizuoka Prefecture is home to Mount Fuji, the tallest mountain in Japan. From Miho no Matsubara, a beach regularly lapped by foamy waves that put one in mind of a beautiful Japanese painting, to Lake Tanuki, which reflects an inverted image of Fuji’s majestic snow-covered grandeur, Shizuoka has no end of gorgeous sights with Mount Fuji as a backdrop. The mountain has been registered as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, but that's not just the mountain itself. It also includes the important religious sites related to the mountain’s religious traditions, the climbing routes, local Shinto shrines, and the famous Fuji Five Lakes. This multifaceted nature is one of Mount Fuji’s charms. Even away from Mount Fuji, Shizuoka’s scenery has an abundance of breathtaking sights, from the rich beauty of Dogashima Island and the cliffs of Jogasaki Coast on the Izu Peninsula, to the amazing Southern Alps, a range with more than a few 3,000-meter peaks that are home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. There are also tourism facilities such as the Fuji Safari Park, S-Pulse Dream Plaza and Chibi Maruko-chan Land, which offer entertainment for the whole family. Shizuoka’s culinary traditions are famous for the vast haul taken in fishing ports such as Izu and Suruga Bay. Other delicious-but-affordable local delicacies include Fujinomiya yakisoba (fried noodles), Hamamatsu gyoza (dumplings) and Shizuoka oden (stew). Shizuoka has an abundance of clean water, so it is also renowned for wasabi and sake which make perfect souvenirs for your friends! There are also a variety of fruit-picking events, which offer both food and a fun activity. We especially recommend strawberry-picking in the spring! In Shizuoka City, there is an area known as Strawberry Beachline (Ichigo Kaigan-dori), where strawberries are grown with a special method called stone wall strawberries, using the rocky mountain slope, and you can enjoy the special Shizuoka brand strawberries known as Aki-hime and more! You can also have a soak in Shizuoka’s famous hot springs, with particularly noteworthy ones like Atami and Shuzenji on the Izu Peninsula, and baths in the vicinity of Mount Fuji where you can be revitalized by the fantastic scenery. There are also no end of hot springs in the central area where high-class baths dot the landscape from the seaside up into the mountains, or the western area where you can take a refreshing bath as you look out on the sea at Enshunada or Lake Hamana! There are countless hot springs you can get to in a few hours, so why not stop by and take a break from all the hectic sightseeing and enjoy a relaxing bath in a traditional Japanese setting? About an hour from Tokyo on the bullet train, or about 70 minutes by car on the Tomei Expressway, and also accessible by airplane from Sapporo, Fukuoka, Kagoshima and Okinawa. While away a satisfying holiday with hot springs, delicious food and plenty of activities, as well as sightseeing at Mount Fuji!"
