Fuji is a city in eastern Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. Venture out of the city with trips to Fujieda (Mt. Eboshi, Fujieda City Library, &more), Shizuoka (Miho Shrine, Miho Seacoast (Miho no Matsubara Beach), &more) and Oi Shrine (in Shimada). There's still lots to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, take some stellar pictures from Obuchi Sasaba, explore the activities along Lake Tanuki, and take in the dramatic scenery at Shiraito Falls.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Fuji itinerary maker website.

Cagayan de Oro, Philippines to Fuji is an approximately 17.5- hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Cagayan de Oro to Fuji. Traveling from Cagayan de Oro in March, you will find days in Fuji are much colder (15°C), and nights are slightly colder (10°C). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can go by car to Ito.
