    Shizuoka Pref. Kamogunmatsuzakichou Matsuzaki
    Namako, or sea cucumber, Wall is probably what Matsuzaki Town in Kamo County, Shizuoka Prefecture, is most well known for. This kind of wall refers to a technique of making a mesh pattern by plastering the joints of square flat tiles arranged on a wall. Especially famous among the many walled houses still remaining in Matsuzaki is the former Kondo residence, whose family used to run a pharmacy there. The small stoned pavement to the side is called Namako Wall Street and it is from here that the atmosphere of the Edo period can still be felt.

Shizuoka 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.
