It was ASUKA II, that the first passenger ship called at the Port of Shimizu in 2022. Many local people and the snow capped Mount Fuji welcomed the ship and passengers. The passengers, crews, and all the people gathered at the pier enjoyed the welcome Taiko, Japanese drum, performance. written by Shimizu Port Authority For the cruise port call information, please visit the official cite of "the Shimizu Port Passenger Ships Promotion Committee"

It was sunny and crystal clear day. Looking from our office, kids were having lunch near the Pier Hinode. You can also see a huge Oceanographic Research Vessel "MIRAI" over the green. We hope this place be a premium area for everyone gathering here from in and out of Japan in the near future. Shimizu Port Authority
