By taxi, you'll be picked up and dropped off at the port of Shimizu to tour the Satta Pass (Observation Platform) where you see first-hand Mt. Fuji from a distance, the site where Hiroshige Blue must have depicted for the woodblock print, Hiroshige Museum, Nihon Daira High Plateau, tea leaves picking, ropeway to-and-from Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, and Miho no Matsubara, among others.
Satta Pass (Observation Platform), Hiroshige Museum (“Ukiyoe” or woodblock printing), Nihon Daira High Plateau Ropeway to-and-from Kunosan Toshogu, and Miho no Matsubara, among others. (FYI: Let’s stretch arms/legs with your pedometer.).
You'll be able to see Mt. Fuji from a distance. You can try out “U-KI-YO-E” or woodblock printing which depicted the daily life of the time, and make your masterwork there by following instructions at the museum.
You can actually compare the sceneries you’ve witnessed at the top of the Pass to the great masterpiece of Hiroshige Blue.
Please enjoy tea leaves picking and visit Ku-no-za-n To-sho-o-gu-u Shrine by ropeway, and Miho-no-Matsubara, registered as a part of Mt. Fuji's world heritage site, among others.

Update of the site: I will be in Nagasaki, Kyushu, in August, tentatively, August the 4th(Tue.) through the 6th (Thur.). I am happy to show you around "hidden Christian sites" with terraced paddy fields, "TA-NA-DA". The sceneries imprinted in Venezia come to my mind when I stand near the Hirado pier. Our itnerary (meeting at Sasebo at 9:00 and finishing there at about 17:30) includes Whale Museum, one of the main local industries of the time, too. I will help you with information on other tourists’ spots on the beaten track. If interested, please e-mail me for the particulars. (as of March 10, 2020)
I am available during the public holiday seasons and semester-end breaks; April 28 - May 6, Dec. 25 - January 7, and the month of August. Could you please bookmark them on your calendar and I will be ready to attend to you. Thank you. Hideaki
