■River Area Cycle along the beautiful Mariko River (no cars on this lane!)
■Countryside and Historical Area In the past, Utsunoya Village was a place for weary travelers to rest, and today visiting this village is like going back to the Edo Period. Remnants of the past remain such as a bakery made of straw built from the 16th century, beautiful cobblestone streets and the cooling Meiji Tunnel (Japan's first pay tunnel).
■Historical Shop As we return to Shizuoka Station, we will stop by a historical shop selling Shizuoka specialties such as rice cakes and tea. (closed on Thursdays)
