Chikurin no Komichi (Bamboo Forest Pass)竹林の小径

Other Sightseeing Spot

This is a pedestrian walkway that was built over the course of three years starting in 1994 which follows the Katsuragawa River flowing through the center of the hot spring resort near Shuzenji Temple in Izu City. The stone path has a teahouse and a fire watchtower, and in the middle of the bamboo forest offering indelible scenes of Japan is a large bench made of bamboo where visitors can sit down to enjoy the murmuring of the river and the touch of the breeze upon their face. Depending on the season sections are lit up at night, making for an even more magical atmosphere, and this is one of the popular sightseeing spots of Shuzenji.

          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.
