Meiji Tunnel

Reviewed By Taigaa - Fujieda, Japan

Meiji Tunnel is one of the sites around Utsunoya Pass to see how Tokaido highway changed routes from Ancient Nara period to 21st century new Heisei tunnel. Tsutano Hosomichi, or Narrow Grapevine Path is the oldest highway route crossing the pass. Tokaido Highway runs close to Meiji tunnel and Meiji Tunnel is the first tunneled route to cross the Utsunoya pass. Showa-tunnel runs paralell to the meiji tunnel and the newer Utsunoya tunnel is still in full use. Then with the increase of traffic from Fujieda to Shizuoka the newest Heisei tunnel was recently made to ease the traffic jam.

Fujieda City Library

Reviewed By Tokugawa_Ieyasu - Fujieda, Japan

First of all, the location of this library is very convenient because it's very near to the railway station. It is in the 3rd floor of a complex building, parking lots are equipped enough and free of charge for an hour.
Variation of its book collection is enough for usual citizens. For academicians, it's better to go to the prefectural library.
Many citizens use this library compare to the ones of other cities according to my experiences.

Tanaka Castle

Reviewed By Taigaa - Fujieda, Japan

This place is not exactly the castle ruins. It is part of Tanaka castle enclosure but it is the reconstructed garden of the samurai retainer and some buildings originally at the castle enclosures. The most prominent one is the two-storied tower which was originally at the main enclosure of the castle where an elementary school stands today. The garden uses the castle earthen wall as Tsukiyama (artificial mountain) , the canal for transportation as a pond. Two turtle stones as well as gold bamboo growth are also good.
Tanaka Castle ruins area have been so damaged beyond repair. You can still see the segmented part of the castle such as part of Ninohori(Second) Moat at the entrance of the Junior high school and Sannohori(Third) Moat near the gym of the Junior high school. To get these places you have to take a short walk about five minutes but there is no direction to lead these places as in some of the historical towns. The villa garden is in very inconvenient place if you use the public transportation. It takes about 25 minutes on foot from JR Nishiyaizu station.

Of course there are also other flowers grown for borders & just to beautify the walkways & paths. In season, there will be carp streamers strung across the pond, waving in the breeze. There are even restricted areas to help glowworms breed!!

Mt. Eboshi

Reviewed By Tokugawa_Ieyasu - Fujieda, Japan

There are many Mountains named "Mt. Eboshi" in Japan. The name "Eboshi" came from the shape of the Mountains that are similar to Japanese ancient hats. Among those "Mt. Eboshi", this one in Fujieda city is the lowest one. According to Fujieda city, it takes about 10 minutes to the top.
You may consider it easy to climb this small mountain. However, the reality is not so easy! The way to the top is not maintained so that the visitors can easily go, you have to watch your steps carefully not to slip/drop. It's very fun to enjoy this mountain climbing.
Please prepare shoes suitable for climbing. Never try to climb with high-heels! You also had better wear denims or other pants.
When you arrive at the top, you may see awesome landscape! Oceans, Mt. Fuji and the sights of cities are yours.
There's a small shrine around the top. Let me recommend you to visit there, too.

Utoge Falls

Reviewed By Taigaa - Fujieda, Japan

This fall is very popular in autumn leaves season. I went there in late July when the Japanese maple is still in light green. But it was really hot that day and the waterfall became a blessing by bringing the cool air. This place may be good throughout the year when the weather is right. If the weather is going to be really bad, howerver, avoid this place. This area is notorious for huge amount of rainfall and thunder shower comes very often.

Okabesyuku Ohatago Kashibaya

Reviewed By Tokugawa_Ieyasu - Fujieda, Japan

In the Edo era of Japan, this Japanese-styled hotel called "Hatago" was built by Yamauchi family who seemed a powerful land owner at Okabe area. Due to the fires occurred twice, current building is the third one. However, it was built more than 170 years ago. Therefore, we can feel the tastes of Japanese old culture here. According to the guide, an old woman who was 90 something lived here by about 20 years ago.
The Exhibitions here are awesome! The real items of "Hatago" and those used by ancient travelers are displayed. You can touch some of them by your hands! But, please keep good manners of Japanese common sense.
Guides of this facility attends to each group of visitors, and gives informative explanations. Those who would like to know about Japanese old cultures must be satisfied though I'm not sure those guides there speak other languages than Japanese.
If you are interested in becoming a traveler of Edo era, some costumes of travelers are available.

Fujieda Fireworks

The Fujieda Fireworks show began in 1917, so it is an old festival. Today it has become a signature sight of summer in the town. Creative and complex fireworks are launched, among them ones in the shape of soccer balls, true to Shizuoka's local sport. The fireworks are reflected on the water of the pond at Rengejioike Park, and the colorful and enchanting mood delights visitors. The fireworks also create a lovely echo as they ping off of the nearby Mountains.

大正時代から約100年続いている花火大会だそう。
昨年サッカーが盛んな藤枝にあって、サッカーボールの形をイメージした創作花火の写真を撮影したくて今年も延期になったので行けました。打ち上げられた花火は公園の後ろにある山に反響が迫力満点です。打上げ数は5,000発の中規模です。
