Shinkansen Stopover In Shizuoka For A Taste Of Raw Tuna

on Oct. 9, 2009 by

My last stop on my way back to Tokyo, during my 7 day city hop through Japan, was in Shizuoka. The city is known for its mouthwatering tuna, green tea and wasabi.

My final stop on the way back to Tokyo. I was truly exhausted after my 7 day intense city hop adventure and only wanted to spend a few hours in Shizuoka.

Shizuoka is a nice quite city between Nagoya and Tokyo. It is not as busy as Osaka or Tokyo but does deliver that pure Japanese cultural vibe.

I also discovered another 109 shopping mall in the Shizuoka city center. Seems like 109 is setting up franchises, hopefully it will make its way to the Western world on day.
