Hello Saito-san. Allowing me to post on this slightly older article, after reading many of your reports, and finding myself curious about certain places, I'd like to confirm with you that I am indeed visiting Tempura Naruse, with a reservation in the near future. Very happy about this. I will also attempt to fit in a visit to Sumibiyaki Unagi Shun, per localtaste's recommendation, if I can mange to.

As this is my first time in Shizuoka, I would also like to take the opportunity to do certain things now, not knowing the next time I might get the chance to return. For instance...
-Knowing the region is the most famous for tea in Japan, is there a place you might recommend me go, to enjoy tea service/ceremony to its fullest? I am also considering visiting a tea field.
-I am trying to find places (towns) I might be able to enjoy a breathtaking view of Mt. Fuji. Perhaps, while relaxing with some snacks at a cafe with a view.
-And if @ChuToroZuke reads this, I am interested in procuring a bottle of the highest level Isojiman sake. Since I'll be here, thought I might as well try.

Thank you all once again.

@Menchikatsu While waiting for the real expert, in the mean time, perhaps you could search Tea master Tohei Maejima in Okabe. One of my favorite teas is Gyokuro from Fukuoka. Okabe also got Gyokuro.

You can't see Mt. Fuji from Shizuoka Station where Naruse is located.
Thus, I think the sight of Mt. Fuji while traveling on the Shinkansen is the best you will get (lol)
Whenever I go to Naruse, I try and make it as quick a trip as possible, so I don't know much about tea houses around the area,
but from what I know the gyokuro green tea served after the course at Naruse is the tastiest in Japan (a surprising taste) so look forward to it.

Thank you Saito-san. Your sense of humor and clever wit today is at its finest! I appreciate a good joke, haha. (facepalm on the Shinkansen tip) I will swim out to Suruga Bay if I have to. I was thinking of stopping in Fujinomiya on the way back.

So another recommendation of gyokuro. I guess I'll have to have some then. Will look forward to the post meal tea. And also took down your suggestion @localtaste. I thought Yame Gyokuro was the famous variety, but I guess Shizuoka must have something on par.

Let me introduce you to the secret tempura restaurant that has become a big topic among foodies in Tokyo right now.
I also visited them just the other day and was very impressed by their brilliance.
