Fuji is a city in eastern Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. You'll explore and learn at Shizuoka City Serizawa Keisuke Art Museum and Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art. Take a break from the city and head to Miho Seacoast (Miho no Matsubara Beach) and Shiraito Falls. Explore Fuji's surroundings by going to Gotemba Premium Outlets (in Gotemba), Yaizu Sakana Center (in Yaizu) and Shizuoka (Miho Shrine, Shizuoka Sengen Shrine, &more). The adventure continues: take a stroll through Sumatakyo Onsen, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Tanuki, take in the spiritual surroundings of Mishima Taisha, and explore the striking landscape at Asagiri Plateau.

To find maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Fuji road trip planning site.

Jakarta, Indonesia to Fuji is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2 hours traveling from Jakarta to Fuji. Traveling from Jakarta in January, expect Fuji to be colder, temps between 10°C and 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel to Shimoda.

An important industrial hub with a sizable immigrant population from South America, Hamamatsu has developed a taste for international cuisine and arts.
