Atami

— 2 nights
With Atami's relative proximity to the nation's capital, this beach resort town draws its fair share of visitors--though holidays in Atami are not just a matter of convenience.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kinomiya Shrine and Kiunkaku. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Joren Waterfall. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Atami: Izu (Mt. Amagi Tunnel (Former Amagi Tunnel) & Shuzen-ji Temple), Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine (in Fujinomiya) and Ito (Michi-no-Eki Ito Marine Town, Mount Omuro, &more). There's more to do: kick back and relax at Atami Sun Beach and explore the historical opulence of Atami Castle.

Tokyo to Atami is an approximately 1.5-hour train ride. You can also drive. Expect little chillier weather when traveling from Tokyo in March: highs in Atami hover around 9°C, while lows dip to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can take a train back home.

Shizuoka Prefecture is a prefecture of Japan located in the Chūbu region of Honshu. The capital is the city of Shizuoka, while Hamamatsu is the largest city by population.HistoryShizuoka Prefecture was formed from the former Tōtōmi, Suruga and Izu provinces.The area was the home of the first Tokugawa Shogun. Tokugawa Ieyasu held the region until he conquered the lands of the Hōjō clan in the Kantō region and placed land under the stewardship of Toyotomi Hideyoshi. After becoming shogun, Tokugawa took the land back for his family and put the area around modern-day Shizuoka city under the direct supervision of the shogunate. With the creation of Shizuoka han in 1868, it once again became the residence of the Tokugawa family.GeographyShizuoka 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.
