This is a fully satisfactory course to visit 3 popular spots including one world heritage site!

Today, I will write about Miho-no-Matsubara

An incredible view of Mount Fuji, with blue sea and verdant pines.
With 30,000 pine trees along a 7km coastline, this is one of Japan’s most beautiful sights.

A subject of many paintings and poetry since ancient times, the pine forest leading to the coastline boasts views of Mount Fuji and the Izu Peninsula across the bay.

The blue sea and white crashing waves, woven with the green pines, together create a landscape not unlike a painting. 

The wedding ceremony in Japanese style.
If you visit, make sure to take a stroll down Kami-no-Michi, or the "road of the gods".

The pine trees stretch over 500m, leading from Miho Shrine to the coast. 
Miho Shrine is famous for bringing couples together.

You’ll get a feeling like nothing else as you walk down this boardwalk, wrapped in the scent of pine and a fresh sea breeze.

From here, it is difficult for wheel chair users to enter.
Over there is sand beach.

"Monument to Elene," 
which consoles the soul of a French dancer, Elene Giuglaris, who was linked to the place by fate. She was touched by the beauty of the legend of hagoromo in learning of a Noh play and came to make a dance work entitled "Hagoromo." 

It was her dream to visit Miho Pine Grove some day, but she fell ill and died at the young age of 35 despite her desire. Her hair is placed in this monument following her will.

After walking, how would you like Shizuoka green tea & Abekawa-mochi(rice cake)?
