    Shizuoka Pref. Numadushi Sembonminatochou 83
    Located in the Minato 83 Banchi commercial facility in Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, this unusual aquarium focuses on deep sea life. The aquarium’s centerpiece is its coelacanth exhibit, which includes extremely rare displays of both a frozen and a mounted coelacanth, a deep sea fish whose form hasn’t changed in 350 million years. Other popular exhibits include a large aquarium filled with animals from Suruga Bay, a treasure trove of deep sea life; an almost magical tank of luminescent fish; and a tank housing giant isopods, famous for their ability to live for years without eating. Unique deep sea life-themed merchandise is available at the aquarium shop.

    The aquarium is quite small and only took an hour to walk round. The exhibits all focussed on the deep sea and were different and really interesting, especially the massive spider crabs.

    Once an imperial villa erected as a vacation spot for Emperor Taisho when he was crown prince in 1893, the site was opened to the general public as a memorial park after the villa was decommissioned during Japan’s Showa period. The park is located in a thick pine forest famous for its picturesque scenery and stands on scenic land facing Suruga Bay. Park facilities include the west villa, where the furniture and furnishings have been restored to the villa’s heyday to give visitors a glimpse of Imperial life during that time; the east villa, which is used as a cultural exchange center; a history and folk custom museum built on the site of the primary villa; and a café housed inside the former horse stable. Take the Izu Hakone Bus from Numazu Station and get off at the “Goyotei-mae” stop.

    We visit here several times for walking. Las year summer’s taihoon destroyed beautiful mosses on the ground. Sea shore and pine trees makes us feel calm.

    Shizuoka Pref. Mishimashi Hirokoujichou 13-2
    A long-standing eel restaurant founded in 1856 famous for its long lines of patrons waiting to get in. Inside the restaurant’s stately and solemn building, visitors will be charmed by a subdued atmosphere which conveys a sense of history and tradition. The restaurant’s recipes are family traditions which have been passed down since Sakuraya was founded, and regulars note that your meal is sure to be delicious no matter when you come. The restaurant’s eel “jubako” (stacked boxes of eel over rice) are particularly popular. Sakuraya let’s its top quality eels swim for several days in snowmelt from Mt. Fuji to marinate them, after which they are lovingly broiled with sauce to create meat that is flavorful, aromatic, and plump. The restaurant also offers a wide selection of individual menu items and course dishes. The closest station is Mishima-Hirokoji Station.

    We love Unagi dishes and visit Unagi restaurant every two months. Sakuraya restaurant is one of best choice from the view point of taste we think. Not so sweet, with a little smoky flavor is munching...

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.
