    Shizuoka Pref. Numadushi Hon Senbon 1905-27

There are viewing galleries 30 meters above the ground on either bank giving visitors the chance to enjoy 360 degree panoramas of Mt. Ashitaka, Mt. Fuji, the Akaishi Mountains, and out to Shimizu. A 30 meter long bridge connects the two galleries, ensuring you can check out both easily during your visit. At night, the entire huge facility is lit up, creating a powerful and magical scene.

    We took bikes from our hotel which was about 1.5kms away. The ticket was 100 yen and the view is from 30 metres overlooking the port area and towards the ocean. Worth a 20 - 30 minute visit.

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.
