We stumbled across the park by accident on the way to Fujinomiya. We were so glad that we got off the train at Mishima! Many of the plants are labelled with scientific names as well as Japanese names. The scenery is spectacular. There are shrines throughout the forest and waterways with turtles and various water birds. There is a section... More

A scenic park in the city; many trees are labeled with Japanese and with English names. Bring binoculars to spot birds. Woodpeckers are there but I was unable to see them to identify. There is also a small amusement park for kids, and a cafe, and a gift shop.

You can watch some Japanese traditional architectures in this park. You can also watch inside of these houses with guide. (without any extra charge)

Loved walking in this park amongst big old trees. Quite a big pond although this season waters low. Interesting rock formations. Wooden house in park, old imperial holiday house. Has mini zoo.. some interesting food stalls, huge chrysanthemums!

This park is beatiful, we were there in the begining of November and it was almost empty, while parks in Tokyo and Kyoto were very crowded. Beatiful house in the centre of park, guide only in japanesee, so it's good to have some japaneese friend to translate as we did :)

Very nice park, convenient to train station. Very walk-able and with sights to see. Zoo is paltry, but swans, ducks and geese adorn the park and make a walk of the grounds enjoyable and beautiful. Amusement area for little children with light refreshments available (drinks, ice cream). Inexpensive and worth a visit if you are in Mishima!

This is a really beautiful park in Mishima. It's a reasonable size and the two occasions I've been there, has not been overly crowded. Sadly, the lake has mostly dried up, apparently due to the intensive water demands of a nearby manufacturing/chemical company, a local told me. But the exposed volcanic rock gives a unique and wonderful scene. There is... More

This is one of the most convenient parks since it is just 2 minutes from the South Exit of JR Mishima Station. It used to be an Imperial villa so there is a museum where you can see the old house with some nice Japanese art inside. There are beautiful Japanese gardens. There is a small animal park which is...

The vines themselves are still quite young and the wine itself isnt great although their rose I find their best. But the restaurants and area and facilities they have surrounding it is lovely.
