my husband at Nihondaira ropeway station

We went Kunozan Tosho-gu by Nihondaira Ropeway. Nihondaira Ropeway overlooks the pacific.  Some staffs welcomed us in costumes. Kunozan is a Shinto shrine. There is the burial place of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first Shogun of Tokugawa era. The hall of worship was a small-sized vivid building. We enjoyed drinking a cup of powdered green tea.  After leaving Kunozan, we went to the sea side.  "Miho no Matsubara" a famous sea shore had been known for its scenic beauty since 1,000 years ago. A thin mist was hanging over the city, so we couldn't see Mt. Fuji. If we had come here in winter, we might have seen the magnificent view of the highest peak in Japan. " Miho no Matsubara " was registered as a world cultural heritage on 22th June, 2013. We ate oden at a shop by the sea. We eat oden only in winter, but  people in Shizuoka eat oden throughout the year. Shizuoka oden was very yummy.

Thank you, Yasuyo san! I don't know about Japan's history so much either. On the next day I was surprised to hear the news this Miho no Matsubara will be left out from the Mt.Fuji's world heritage site.
