Shimizu Port Water Bus & Miho-no-Matsubara(清水港水上バス & 三保の松原)

Short trip to the Fuji viewing peninsula by water bus and bicycle

Miho-no-matsubara(美保の松原), one of the component asset of Mt. Fuji World Heritage, can be visited with a combination of local bus, bicycle, and Shimizu Port Water Bus(清水港水上バス) . Since Shimizu port is one of the three most beautiful ports in Japan along with Kobe port and Nagasaki port, a route using water bus from Ejiri port(江尻港)(five minute walk from JR Shimizu station) is highly recommended.
