Fuji is a city in eastern Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Venture out of the city with trips to Oi Shrine (in Shimada), Fujieda (Mt. Eboshi, Fujieda City Library, &more) and Shizuoka (Miho Shrine, Miho Seacoast (Miho no Matsubara Beach), &more). The adventure continues: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, explore the activities along Lake Tanuki, admire the sheer force of Shiraito Falls, and take in the pleasant sights at Mishima Skywalk.

To see maps, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Fuji travel route planner.

Cagayan de Oro, Philippines to Fuji is an approximately 17.5-hour combination of flight and car. The time zone changes from Philippine Standard Time (PST) to Japan Standard Time (JST), which is usually a 1 hour difference. When traveling from Cagayan de Oro in March, plan for colder days and a bit cooler nights in Fuji: temperatures range from 15°C by day to 10°C at night.
