Shimizu is a beautiful working port, where you can experience fresh Japanese seafood and green tea in a more relaxed smaller town. The tourist information center has a very good "Shimizu Walking Tour Map" which highlights the locations of various points of interest. Residents are...More

We chose not to take the tour up Mount Fuji and had a pleasant walk through the town to an ancient temple. We were lucky to get a clear view of Mount Fuji - which only happens about three times a year.

We arrived by cruise ship on a rainy day in October and unfortunately Mt. Fuji was not to be seen . Without this sight , the Shimizu Port is very commercial and not interesting !

Shimizu Port provides a different, more industrialized view of Mt Fuji which I found interesting. Don't forget to check the weather forecast before you go though to get the best view.

While I'm sure that this place looks a lot nicer if you can actually see Mount Fuji in the background, while I was staying in Shizuoka I visited this port a couple of times and I did not see Mount Fuji at all. I even...More
