Fujieda City extends over a long stretch of land running north to south in central Shizuoka Prefecture.The area is rich in flora, greenery, and water.
It is also rich in historical sites, including tumuli that arouse the curiosity for antiquity, a prestigious shrine erected during the reign of Emperor Nintoku, the remains of a government office witness to the politics and culture of the Nara and Heian periods (710-1185), a castle owned successively by the Imagawa, Takeda, Tokugawa clans in the Sengoku period (1493-1590), and vestiges of the 21st and 22nd post stations on the Tokaido route in the Edo period (1603-1868).
The streets of the former Fujieda-shuku and Okabe-shuku remain much as they were in the flourishing post station years, revealing something of the lifestyle four centuries ago. This cityscape makes Fujieda a fun place to explore. And the mild climate and friendly people help visitors to relax in both body and soul.
Welcome to Fujieda City.
