At the foot of Mount Fuji

You will not pass far from Mount Fuji on the way from Tokyo to Shizuoka , the opportunity to take a short break to admire the highest mountain in the country up close. Why not stop at a ryokan before exploring the tea region? Shizuoka is a real breath of fresh air after staying in the capital. In the footsteps of Ieyasu Tokugawa , you can recharge your batteries by the waterfalls, drink local green tea and simply relax. On September 28, cheer on the Japanese team who will have to give their all against Ireland, a great rugby nation, at the Ecopa stadium in Shizuoka .
