    Shizuoka Pref. Itoushi Yawatano 1064-2
    A museum located a 10 minute walk from Izu-Kogen Station designed around the concept of a “teddy bear house.” The museum features numerous displays, including “Teddy Girl,” an early teddy bear produced by the German Steiff firm which is also listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, rare antique bears, and works by teddy bear makers from around the world. The brick exhibition hall is modeled after an English country home. There’s also a courtyard filled with cute bears and a tea room with comfortable terrace seating, giving visitors the chance to enjoy a truly fairy tale-like atmosphere.

    There is not much to view. Less than 30 mins you can finish this museum. I don't think the ticket worth the money. But if you traveled to Izukogen with children, you could give it a chance. The...

    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...

    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

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.
