Pre-/Post-Convention Programs

Tea harvesting during a tea factory tour/hands-on experience with tea culture

Tuna filleting show

  • Tea factory tours, tea harvesting and hands-on experiences with tea culture
    Shizuoka is a land of tea. Visitors can tour tea making factories and try their hand at picking tea, and learn about tea culture from tea farmers.
  • Hands-on experiences with tuna
    Shimizu Port handles more frozen tuna than any port in Japan. Visitors can tour the -60°C tuna freezers, watch a tuna filleting show, try their hand at making nigiri sushi and more.
  • Sake of Shizuoka
    Shizuoka’s reputation as a sake-producing region is underrated; its sake is used in toasts at summit meetings and other important events. Visitors can learn about sake from certified sake tasters, and tour factories that make sake and are capitalizing on the recent interest in whiskey.
  • Making Shizuoka traditional handicrafts
    Shizuoka is home to many traditional industrial arts that trace their roots to the artisans of the early 1600s.
    Visitors can enjoy hands-on experiences with bamboo work, indigo dyeing and other industrial arts that exhibit the culture of the Edo period (1603-1868).
