Shizuoka prefecture is located on the Pacific Ocean side between Tokyo and Nagoya. On the east side of Shizuoka prefecture there is Mt.Fuji between Yamanashi Prefecture. When you ride the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Kyoto, you can see Mt.Fuji in the window on the right. Mt.Fuji seen from the Shinkansen is behind the factories in Shizuoka prefecture. Perhaps you are disappointed that Mt. Fuji is with the factories. However, Mt. Fuji has been in history with the people of the Pacific Ocean side. And Mt. Fuji is blessed with plentiful water to the factories on the Pacific side. Please understand that Mt.Fuji is such a familiar mountain. If you want to see Mt. Fuji surrounded by rich nature, it may be good to see it from Yamanashi Prefecture on the north side.
