Shizuoka Prefecture

Shizuoka Prefecture

Shizuoka Prefecture is home to Mount Fuji and is recognized for its plethora of natural beauty.

Shizuoka Prefecture is located approximately at the center of Japan on the Pacific Coast. It stretches 155 km from east to west and 118km from north to south with an area of 7,779 km. It boasts a variety of natural environs such as beaches, mountains, and lakes. Shizuoka’s long coastline runs approximately 500km along the Sea of Enshu and Suruga Bay and Sagami Sea. Majestic, 3,000 meter high mountains, such as Mt. Fuji and some of the mountains which make up the Southern Alps, run from Shizuoka's northern mountain area to the southern plains, providing many breathtaking views. The streams flowing from these mountains and running through Shizuoka include, among others, the Fuji, Oi, and Tenryu. Sometimes referred to as Japan's Riviera, Shizuoka Prefecture is located along the Pacific coast in the south of the Chubu Region. Its scenic mountains and valleys are great places to walk, hike or cycle. Mount Fuji and the Izu Peninsula are part of Shizuoka Prefecture.

Shizuoka Prefecture produces more than half the green tea produced in Japan and is also a major producer of mandarin oranges. The annual Shimoda matsuri commemorates the arrival of the US Commodore Perry and his Black Ships in the mid-nineteenth century at Shimoda on the Izu Peninsula. The city of Shizuoka, the center of local administration and economy, was the capital town of a daimyo's fief where once stood the Sunpu Castle of the ruler Tokugawa Ieyasu, a warlord of the Sengoku Period (Warring States Period). Besides the ruins of the castle, there are the Toro Remains, where you can see the reproductions of ancient houses and high-floored granaries used back in the 3rd to 4th centuries B.C., and Kuno-san Tosho-gu Shrine that has a Chinese-style gate, a national treasure.
