A cultural and tourism fair organized by Japan's Shizuoka prefecture was held in Jing'an District over the weekend, allowing visitors to experience Shizuoka's landscape, culture, history and glamour.

Participants learned to arrange flowers from Iizuka Senkei, a Japanese flower arrangement master who created a Christmas-themed arrangement. They also sipped Shizuoka green tea and learned about traditional Japanese tea ceremony. A lucky draw was also held during the event hosted by the Shanghai office of Shizuoka Prefecture.

Shizuoka is home to Mount Fuji, a symbol of Japan, which can be viewed from many spots in Shizuoka. It also boasts spectacular coastlines, rivers and lakes, historical sites, tea growing fields and hot springs.

Atami in Shizuoka is a famous resort town known for its hot springs, while Kawazu in the prefecture is known for the famous Kawazu cherry blossom, the earliest cherry blossom near Tokyo. The town has about 8,000 cherry blossom trees that start flowering in late January.
