Tagonoura Port(area:CHUBU/SHIZUOKA)

World Heritage Spring Summer Autumn Winter

The Port of Tagonoura holds the distinction of being the closest port to Mount Fuji. Befitting its proximity to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tagonoura carries a strong artistic tradition, having been appreciated for its beauty since ancient times. The longstanding admiration for Tagonoura is documented in well-known literary works, such as the Man’yōshū, an eighth-century poetry anthology, and Tokaido Ejiri Tagonoura, one of the constituent pieces of Katsushika Hokusai’s famous eighteenth-century collection of woodblock prints called Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji.
Though much has changed since Tagonoura was the subject of epic works, it remains a well-trafficked destination. The port serves as a link to local points of interest, such as Shiraito Falls and Fujisan Hongu Sengen Taisha Shrine, both of which were registered as constituent properties of Mount Fuji’s World Heritage Site. Many visitors also stay within the port premises to try fresh seafood, with many people traveling long distances for the sole purpose of eating shirasu sardines from Suruga Bay.
