Why Shizuoka (静岡)? I had a day left over from my 5 day train pass that I used in Osaka and Hiroshima. I realized I could head to Shizuoka as a day trip from Tokyo and my travel would be free. Shizuoka from Shinagawa station in Tokyo is about 4 hours away. It takes a train transfer or two, but you do get to pass Mt. Fuji. Spending the day 8 hours in transit is not ideal, but you can’t beat free
Shizuoka is the 19th largest city in Japan, but it has tons of gal culture within it. There were also twice the amount of gal stores in Shizuoka 109 (静岡109 link) than in Hiroshima Parco. Even though Hiroshima is the 10th largest city in Japan.
I only spent a day in Shizuoka (I couldn’t afford any longer), but I really want to go back. If I can this trip I will. :waves:
