Arrive in Shimizu for an overnight stay, affording you time to get to know this historic city on the shores of Suruga Bay and explore farther afield to the famous Mt. Fuji. In Shimizu, visit the original burial spot of the first shogun, the Shinto shrine of Kunozan Tosho-gu. With its flamboyant design and bright colors, it is a testament to the status that these military dictators held in the eyes of the emperor who appointed them. You can view the suits of armor, tachi (swords), and other artifacts and enjoy sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean along the way.
