Off the Beaten Path Fuji

Explore Shizuoka/ Tourism Shizuoka Japan (TSJ) is the official DMO for Shizuoka Prefecture. The team focuses on introducing the world to the abundant natural attractions, authentic Japanese culture, unique history and community-based experiences in which visitors can immerse themselves in the majestic home of Mount Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan,

An example of a must-see area is Suruga. Mountains, rivers, seas — Suruga has them all. Suruga’s northern border meets the Southern Japan Alps mountain ranges soaring to peaks over 3,000 meters high. Visitors may take a trip to the coastline wrapped by the lush green tea fields to enjoy the seafood fresh from Suruga Bay — the deepest ocean area in all Japan. Guests here also savor the resplendent beauty of Mt. Fuji on the same tour.
