1st episode: Shizuoka, another vision of Mount Fuji, off the beaten track
2nd episode: Secrets of Shizuoka’s green tea
– Increase the notoriety of the province, by positioning it as a destination off the beaten track to discover Mount Fuji.

Much more than a simple online training on the strengths of the destination, but a total immersion thanks to videos produced by local tourism players (receptive, hotels, museums, etc.), especially for the occasion.
The 2nd episode was devoted to green tea, a major asset of the Shizuoka prefecture, which is home to 40% of the production of Japan. All the secrets of Japanese green tea have been revealed: history, economy, benefits, tea ceremony, video tutorial to learn how to make a perfect Japanese green tea.
And of course, different suggested itineraries around Mount Fuji and green tea.
