If you want to enjoy your meeting or event with beautiful scenery and the one and only Mt. Fuji in the background, we can assist you in hosting the perfect meeting or event.
Suruga Region, located in the heart of Japan, is ideally located for convenience for those coming abroad. The Tokaido Shinkansen bullet train is only a 60 minute ride from either Nagoya or Tokyo station, and 100 minutes from Osaka.
Those flying in to Shizuoka can utilize the Mt. Fuji Shizuoka Airport from some international locations as well as most domestic airports in the country.
Prices for the venues in the region are reasonable. A comparable venue in a major city like Osaka may cost 3 to 10 times the cost of a venue in the Suruga Region. We also can help with funding through our subsidy programs. Contact us for more information.
In the Suruga Region, industries such as the fishing and tea industries are the lifeblood of our region. Through our connections with local industries, we can introduce you to your future academic or business opportunity.
Those looking to experience the Suruga Region can explore our deep roots with the history of Japan, or how we strive to coexist with nature through our tea culture, which is unique to our region.
As the birth place of Japanese tea, we are among the few places in the country famous for our brand of tea. Not only do we produce tea, but we also collect tea from across the country and process it in a wide variety of ways to create unique blends. You’ll be able to experience these flavors yourself when you come to the Suruga Region by visiting tea farmers and masters where they work.
The 2,500m depths of Suruga Bay are the deepest waters in the country and boast a wide variety of seafood that our fishing industry is based on. Come and enjoy some of the freshest seafood at one of our harbors!
There are also many ways to experience the bay visually, whether from the apex of a Ferris wheel on the port, to a ferry that can take you over to the Izu Peninsula. If you want a private way to enjoy the bay, you can charter one of the sailing ships for your group or colleagues.
With the deepest waters comes a plethora of seafood, and we are by far most famous for our Sakura Shrimp. Yui Fishing Port is the largest Sakura Shrimp farm. They have gone to great lengths to prevent overfishing of this species of shrimp by only allowing cultivation two times a year, spring and fall. Only during this time can you enjoy it fresh, but we have different ways to enjoy Sakura Shrimp year round.
At an elevation of 307m, the Nihondaira Plateau lies at the heart of Shizuoka City and has a panoramic view of everything that is the essence of the Suruga Region. From the boundless reaches of the green tea fields to the Southern Alps that connect to the one and only Mt. Fuji, you’ll be able to see it all. Stop by the Yume Terrace for views, and then via the Nihondaira Ropeway learn about the legendary Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu at the place he is enshrined, Kunozan Toshogu Shrine.
In both his childhood and later as a ruler, Tokugawa Ieyasu spent much of his time in the Suruga Region. The castle he built, Sumpu Castle is in ruins, but many of the fixtures of the castle have been restored to its former glory and is now currently used as a park. Learn about the castle that was the center for the city you see today. Within the park is also Momijiyama Garden, an authentic tea garden where you can enjoy the four seasons of Japan while sipping on tea.
