What we do
An authentic side of Shizuoka
In spring 2017, Ecologic launched En-Ya Mt Fuji Ecotours, customisable Ecotours introducing visitors to a more authentic side of Shizuoka. Ecologic works together with Fujinomiya's city's businesses to highlight cultural and outdoor points of interest, promote local arts, and create services that are English-friendly, including teaching locals English.
Activities include cycling past Yuno village's fields, temples, shrines and thatched houses, cooling off at the majestic Shiraito Falls, hiking to Mt Hoei crater on Mt. Fuji, creating Japanese traditional wagashi sweets, and strolling the shoutengai (traditional shopping streets) and Mt Fuji Sengen Taisha shrine in a Kimono. Ecotour proceeds help support local vendors.
