Didn't get a view of Mt Fuji the day we were there, but the Shrine and Museum are an enjoyable stop at the end of the Nihondiara Ropeway (It is a cable tram...don't worry).

This is a smaller version of the shrine in Nikko. It was built first and was the original shrine/temple for TOKUGAWA Ieyasu. It is very similar to Nikko but on a slightly smaller scale though I think the setting is more dramatic overlooking the Pacific. Very easy to get there by bus from Shizuoka station. It is a 35 minute... More
