Yaizu is not the first stop on many traveller’s lists when coming to Japan. My visits here were limited to visits to teach/jump around at a local kindergarten and a few times in 2016 when I stayed the night in a very pleasant hotel in order to be able to use the Internet.
Why didn’t I have Internet? Well, I was still scarred from my run-ins with the dreadful company that is Softbank, which lasted well over a year. If you are thinking of using any of their services, don’t.
Apart from the fish market, which enjoys some renown locally, Sapporo also runs a brewery here, where some of my students work. In addition, the little hamlet of Hanazawa tucked away in the mountains is worth a look if you’re after some real countryside.
