Shizuoka prefecture will be the destination for the Autumn edition of Papersky’s Tour de Nippon.

On the second day, enjoy cycling along the seaside while sampling Yaizu’s local cuisine, followed by a hike in “Mankanho”, a popular mountain range among the locals, and a Zen meditation experience at the temple that was responsible for bringing zen to America.
