Living in Shizuoka

Shizuoka Prefecture is located in the Chubu area of Honshu, with a population of 3,774,000. The capital, Shizuoka City, is surrounded with lush scenery and historical culture. Japan's largest tea growing area is located near Shizuoka City. To the east lies the highest mountain in Japan, Mt. Fuji; a beautifully intact and active volcano, and one of Japan's most famous icons. Mt. Fuji has been an inspiration for the Japanese spirit since medieval times. Shizuoka Prefecture has many amazing hot springs and ryokan for visitors and residents alike. Shizuoka Prefecture holds the largest percentage of “secondary homes,” or “vacation homes” in Japan, at 18%, due to its scenic beauty and convenient links to the Greater Tokyo Metropolitan Area.
