How to get there
Shimizu Port is about 10 minutes away from downtown Shizuoka by car, and JR 240 yen is convenient to Shimizu Station, and there is a free ferry from JR Shimizu Station to Shimizu Port.
I bought a Dream Pass, which is an overpriced ticket. I bought the Yamagiku Line, which allows you to ride the train and the Central Izu Bus, and the Gold Line, which allows you to ride the train and the West Izu Bus, and these two tickets also come with one-way ferry tickets for the ports of Shimizu and Toi.
The ferry from Toi Port to Shimizu Port runs four times a day (920; 1200; 1440; 1720), and the time may change, so check before you take it.
Mt. Fuji can be seen during the trip. The ferry ride takes about 1 hour.
There is a free minibus from the Shimizu Port to JR Shimizu Station.
I will stop in Shimizu for one night, of course, to visit the Mariko Museum.
The museum is located on the 3rd floor of S-Plus Dream Plaza, a shopping center next to Shimizu Port.
By the way, you can get a discount on the ticket with the Dream Pass for Izu.
Don’t forget to try the cheap and delicious seafood donburi at the mall.
