Hagoromo no Matsu Pinetree (羽衣の松)
This pine in Shimizu Ward, Shizuoka City serves as the vessel for the deities enshrined at Miho-jinja Shrine. Legend has it that this was the very tree that the celestial maiden in the Japanese legend of Hagoromo hung her feather robe. However, this is actually the third tree to go by this name. It took over for the rapidly withering second tree in 2010. The tree's location is connected to Miho-jinja Shrine by a 500 meter-long approach lined with pine trees known as the Kami no Michi (god's path).

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.
