Shizuoka prefecture is one of Japan’s premier hot spring areas, bustling with visitors who come to enjoy the waters at Atami City, Izu City, and elsewhere. It also has an exceptional number of unique destinations. These include Shimoda City, one of the ports where Japan first opened to the world in the 19th century, and Shuzenji Onsen, known for the ancient hot spring of Tokko no Yu. Along the Otako coast you’ll find one locale in particular known as “the final word for the greatest sunset in Japan.” This is Nishiizu Town, and here you can enjoy a sunset that truly fills the whole of your vision.
