Located south of Tokyo, Shizuoka is a less crowded alternative to the hustle and bustle of Shonan.
Shizuoka has a kind of Shonan feel to it, but only more laid back and rural. Still, with the beach and city mix, Shizuoka can get quiet crowded. Mostly beachbreaks dominate this area, and like Shonan is usually small except when the typhoons start to roll on in. Then the action starts happening. Shizuoka is located further south of Shonan and has pretty much the same if not slightly better wave quality.
