Nihondaira Plateau (green tea farm, observatory, cableway)
The most popular spot to view beautiful Mountain Fuji.
Nihondaira is a hilly area, 307 meters above sea level. Designated as one of Japan’s most scenic spots, from the summit you can admire Mount Fuji, Miho no Matsubara and Suruga Bay. Although there are many places to get great views of Mount Fuji, Nihondaira is unique for its seasonal elements. In February, plum trees bloom red and white, and in April, the road to the summit is lined with cherry trees bursting with pink. Since you’ve come all this way, why not take a ride on the gondola to Kunozan Toshogu Shrine? It’s a five-minute ride with majestic views of mountains and the sea.
