Miho no Matsubara Pine Grove (三保松原)

Coast / Beach

"Miho no Matsubara is a scenic area located on the Miho Peninsula in Shimizu Ward, Shizuoka City. It is famous for a roughly 7km long stretch of beach that is lined with around 30,000 pine trees, and because of its association with the famous Legend of Hagoromono (""Feathered Robe""); there is one particular pine tree, called the ""Hagoromo no Pine Tree,"" on which, according to the legend, a celestial being who had been flying over the beach hung her feathered garment so that she could bathe in the sea. Miho no Matsubara's beautiful scenery has made it the subject matter of countless paintings and poems over the centuries, including Utagawa Hiroshige's ""Famous Views of the Sixty Noted Provinces"" and ""Pine Groves of Miho in Suruga Province."" In 2013, the Miho no Matsubara pine groves were added to the UNESCO World Heritage List as part of the ""Fujisan, Sacred Place and Source of Artistic Inspiration"" World Heritage site."

          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.
