    伊豆の長八といえば漆喰画(?)の名人。こちらには長八の作品とナマコ壁の技術を伝承するための作品などが展示されています。漆喰での立体作品は驚くほど完成度が高く驚かされます。戦災や建物の改築などで失われた作品が残念でなりません。伊豆の地にこのような方が居たとは本当にビックリです。 あまり混んでいませんのでゆっくりと自分のペースで見学する事が可能です。施設の方も親切で聞けばわかる範囲で丁寧に教えてくださ...

    The Nosaka Automata Museum is an art museum located in Yawatano, Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture, which stores and displays antique ‘automata’ dolls that can move by mechanical means. Automata produced by European watch makers in the 18th and 19th centuries are works of art that use one spring as its driving force without using any electrical power. In addition to the exhibition of a number of valuable automata that would have attracted aristocrats of the day, there is also a corner which shows, several times a day, the automata in action.

    These days we take robots and machines for granted, but even just 100 years ago, automata filled people with wonder. How do they move It's like magic! This museum has a great collection. My friend...

    Shizuoka Pref. Itoushi Kawana 1439-1
    Located in a perfect location overlooking the sea is this stained glass museum in Kawana, Ito City, Shizuoka Prefecture. With a church and chapel contained within, there is precious stained glass from the 19th century given by the UK to be found throughout the building. The museum is a glorious space in which the soul is soothed by the rays of sunshine pouring through the stained glass windows, the soft light of the lamps and by the scent of the incense. Unexpected moments can be enjoyed while listening to the sounds of the music box and pipe organ. On site is an Italian restaurant run by chef Yukio Ishizaki and also a wedding venue.

    I am not an expert on stained glass, but I found the building elegant, the gardens pretty and the overall atmosphere enchanting. Many stained glass windows on display are old works from Europe...

Shizuoka Main Areas

With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
