View-O water gate and viewing platform (沼津港大型展望水門びゅうお)


Observatory / Outlook

One of Japan’s largest water gates, View-O was erected in Numazu Port to protect the city of Numazu City, Shizuoka Prefecture from tsunami. 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.

Reviewed:2020/01/15 Interesting but not worth going out of your way for
For the engineers out there, this is fascinating. And even non-engineers can appreciate whats been accomplished in terms of flood control. But you wont need more than 15-20 minutes to go to the top...

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.
