Miho pine grove, the scenic spot that was depicted by Hiroshige

Miho pine grove is regarded as one of the 3 new most beautiful scenic locations in Japan.  Miho means Miho peninsula located in Shizuoka prefecture.  This is very famous for the great harmony of the view of Mt. Fuji, a beach and a pine grove.

You walk through this pine grove…

and you can see beautiful sea (the Pacific ocean) and…

stunning Mt.Fuji!  A famous ukiyo-e artist Hiroshige depicted this scene about 200 years ago.
