Shirataki Park (白滝公園)
Located in Mishima City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Shirataki Park wells up with water from Mt. Fuji. When Mt. Fuji erupted about 10,000 years ago, lava flow exposed channels in the ground from where water now wells up in what looks like white water, hence its name Shirataki, which literally means ‘white waterfall’. There are many shallow pools for young children to play safely in and the park is inundated with people in the hot summer months trying to cool down. The park has pathways and playgrounds for the children and it’s a wonderful place to enjoy a leisurely picnic among the large, shady trees, or immerse yourself in a spot of forest bathing.

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.
