    Shizuoka Iwata-shi Kamino Department 888

    静かな山あいに佇むミュージアムはシルクロードと違って歴史のありそうな和風の建物で一見シルクロードを連想できませんが門の前にラクダの置物があって少しシルクロードかなと思えるくらいです。展示物はたぶん個人で買い集めたものが展示されているのだと思いました。入場料は少し高いかなと思いました。

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.
