Fuji Speedway is a race circuit in Shizuoka Prefecture at the foot of Mount Fuji and one of the two venues, which staged the Formula One Japanese Grand Prix in recent years. The other is the Suzuka Circuit south of Nagoya.

The first Formula One race in Japan took place in 1976 at the Fuji Speedway. From 1987, the Japan Grand Prix was held annually at the Suzuka Circuit until Fuji Speedway played host again twice in 2007 and 2008. The race returned to Suzuka in 2009.

Getting there and around

There are buses from Gotemba Station (everyday) and Suruga-Oyama Station (weekends only). Alternatively, a taxi ride from either station takes about 20 minutes and costs around 3500 yen (one way).
