A couple of hours west from Tokyo, Shizuoka Prefecture (静岡県, Shizuoka-ken) is one of Japan’s most visited prefectures for many reasons.

Mount Fuji, Japan's highest mountain and one of the country's most iconic symbols, is located on the prefecture's northern border; also in the area is the Fuji-san Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine, the Shiraito Falls, and the beautiful Miho no Matsubara, among others. The scenic Izu Peninsula and Atami are renowned for their hot springs, while southern Shizuoka also sports wonderful beaches. And if you want to do some shopping, the Gotemba Premium Outlets contain over 200 stores.

There’s no shortage of good food in Shizuoka, as some of Japan’s best seafood can be found there.
