Shizuoka has everything, just like Tokyo. You won't get nervous, as you might in Tokyo.

A Shopper's Paradise

In Shizuoka City, there are many department stores and large-scale commercial facilities complete with first-class brands. It is much more enjoyable shopping in Shizuoka City, than shopping in Tokyo. Why is this? It's because the staff here are friendly. It's also because you can shop at your own pace.

Sumpu, the land that nurtured Tokugawa Ieyasu, and the land that he established. It may be because of the climatically and geographically blessed conditions, that the people that live here are so kind.
