Shizuoka Travel Guide

Shizuoka is a prefecture of Japan located in the central Chubu region of the Honshu island. The capital is the city of Shizuoka, while Hamamatsu is the largest city by population.

Western Shizuoka was once the province of Totomi-no-kuni, also known as Enshu, which you’ll still see in many company names and placenames in the area today. The eastern part of the prefecture was once the province of Suruga-no-kuni, while the Izu Peninsula was its own province, Izu-no-kuni The famous mountains are Mt. Hakone, Mt. Amagi, Mt. Fuji and Mt. Akaishi.

Shizuoka Prefecture is an elongated region following the coast of the Pacific Ocean at the Suruga Bay. In the west, the prefecture extends deep into the Japan Alps. In the east, it becomes a narrower coast bounded in the north by Mount Fuji, until it comes to the Izu Peninsula, a popular resort area pointing south into the Pacific.

As of 1 April 2012, 11% of the total land area of the prefecture was designated as Natural Parks, namely the Fuji-Hakone-Izu and Minami Alps National Parks; Tenryu-Okumikawa Quasi-National Park; and four Prefectural Natural Parks.

Climb Mount Fuji. There are Fujinomiya Trail in Fujinomiya, Gotemba Trail in Gotemba, and Subashiri Trail in Oyama-cho.
Ride a steam engine and cog railway. The Oigawa Railway operates one of less than a handful of steam locomotives left in Japan. Catch the train from Kanaya Station one stop west of Shimada and take it to Senzu deep in Kawanehon-cho. From there you can catch a bus to Okuizumi Station and catch the cog railway (originally built to support the construction of dams on the Oigawa) as far north as Ikawa, at the foot of the Southern Alps. Both train rides are especially beautiful during sakura season (there is a 1km section of track called the “sakura tunnel”) and autumn leaf season.

On the south-central Pacific coast Shizuoka has a humid subtropical climate, which is hot and humid in the summers and rarely snows in winter. It is close to the warm Kuroshio Current and is wet even by Japanese standards with only slightly less precipitation than Kanazawa on the opposite side of Honshu, but it is paradoxically the sunniest of Japan‘s major cities owing to the absence of summer fog and its sheltered location from the northwesterly winds off the Sea of Japan. Further north, the mountainous Ikawa area is part of the Japanese snow country, where there are ski areas.

Best time to visit Shizuoka

Although Shizuoka‘s climate is generally mild year-round, most people travel to the prefecture Jul–Sep, when it’s warm and humid and beaches and hot springs resorts are at their busiest. During typhoon season (Aug–Sep), views of Mt. Fuji may also be more obstructed than usual. The multi-day Hamamatsu Festival (May) falls during the second half of the busy travel period of Golden Week, and includes kite-flying and evening parades.
