    Shizuoka Hamamatsu-shi Naka-ku Shijimizuka 4-22-1
    This park is built around the National Historic Site-designated Shijimizuka Archaeological Site. The park grounds encompass recreations of the kind of Jomon period homes which once stood here in ancient times; and the Takayama Family Residence, an Edo period home. The Shijimizuka Archaeological Site, which makes up the core of the park, is the site of a village which existed from the late to the end of the Jomon period (approximately 4,000 years ago to 3,000 years ago). The locations of homes, graves, and shell mounds have been discovered in the area, primarily in what is now maintained as an open field in the park. One of the shell mounds is preserved in the same state as when human bones were discovered in it, and visitors can see the mound's accumulated seashells and other relics beyond a glass window. The lush park is also widely used by local residents as a space for rest and relaxation.

  • Shizuhatayama Kofun
    Travel / Tourism
    Shizuoka Shizuoka-shi Aoi-ku Miyagasakicho 102 Shizuoka Sengen Jinja Keidai
    This kofun (burial mound) is within the precinct of Sengen Shrine. It is located past the stone steps behind the shrine. With a diameter of 32 meters and height of 7 meters, this round kofun is the largest horizontal-hole-style stone chamber in the prefecture. It is thought to be for a powerful family from around the 6th century. Although rummaged through by thieves, the burial items unearthed are stored and displayed in the Shizuoka City Cultural Property Museum as precious items. A model has been set up in front of the kofun, so you can learn about the kofun's internal structure. Visitors are not allowed to enter the kofun, but you can get a glimpse from behind the fence, as it is lit with lighting.

    Shizuoka Fujieda-shi Nyakuoji 500 Renge Teraike Park
    "This collection of kofun (burial mounds) are the oldest in Fujieda City, and are thought to have been made from the end of the 4th century to the end of the 5th century. Roughly 28 mounds, round mounds of various sizes and square mounds, are concentrated in this area. The area is known for the fact that wheel stones, which were rare in eastern Japan, were unearthed, and you can see the artifacts, including as iron swords and magatama (jewels), in the ""Fujieda Provincial Museum"". Now, it is the relaxing place for locals as an ancient tomb square in Rengejiike Park. Visitors can enjoy Shida Plain, Suruga Sea, and even the magnificent views of Mt. Fuji beyond the mountains on the clear days from the square."
  • Hitoana Fuji-ko Historical Site
    Travel / Tourism
    Shizuoka Fujinomiya-shi Hitoana 206
    A historical site on the site of the Hitoana Sengenjinja Shrine. Here you'll find the Hitoana lava cave formed by the Inusuzumi Yama lava flow as well as over 200 monuments arranged by the Fujiko Shinto devout. The lava cave, the center of the historical site, drops down to a depth of nearly 880 meters. In the Azuma Kagami, a history book compiled by the Kamakura Shogunate, it's stated that this is the residence of the goddess Sengen Daibosatsu, which suggests that the lava cave had a deep connection to the Fujisan faith in those days. It is currently only possible to enter a small portion of the cave where a small shrine, three monuments, and four stone Buddhas have been erected (advance application required).

Shizuoka Areas

around-area-map

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.
