Travel Tips & Information
Here is the basic information about Shizuoka as a reference for planning your trip.
Shizuoka Prefecture is a long, horizontal prefecture. The Hamamatsu area is on the Aichi side, while Shizuoka City is right in the middle.
If you are coming from Tokyo, you should take the Shinkansen.
Although the Nozomi does not stop here, the Hikari train connects Tokyo and Shizuoka in about one hour. To get to Shimizu, take the Tokaido Line from Shizuoka Station.
Although there are some hotels around Shizuoka Station, there are not that many accommodations in the area.
Since the Shinkansen runs until late, you will probably have to travel to Tokyo, Nagoya, or Osaka after the game.
Here are some suggestions for hotels in the Shizuoka and Shimizu areas, including those for sightseeing in Shizuoka the next day.
Fuji, and Miho-no-Matsubara in Shimizu City is one of the most popular sightseeing spots in Shizuoka. The pine trees on the shore, the sea and Mt. Fuji are just like the world of Utagawa Hiroshige's Ukiyo. There is also a museum in Shimizu called Chibimaruko-chan Land.
Shizuoka City has a bronze statue of Tokugawa Ieyasu, so I think Shimizu City has more to offer in terms of sightseeing.
In Shizuoka Prefecture, Hamamatsu is famous for its dumplings and eels.
