Kunozan Toshogu ShrineMihono beach offers an overview of the famous Mount Fuji in conjunction with the pine tree line. Made from small stones rather than sand, once you reach the beach, don’t expect glistening white sand, it is more like crushed lava in color. Among the many pine trees lining the beach is the Hagoromo-no-Matsu which has a legend about a fisherman who once found a robe belonging to a heavenly maiden hanging on the tree’s branches.
Miho no MatsubaraThe Shimizu shore trip will not complete without shopping in the S-Pulse Dream Plaza, a complex building which has the first Sushi museum, opened for about 15 years.
