Mishima City Park Rakujuen | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Mishima Station 

[Mishima City Park Rakujuen]

The park which is home to the source of the Gembe, a river which flows through Mishima, the "Water City"

Rakujuen is a park where visitors can enjoy beautiful views of trees and clear water, as afforded for example by Kohama Pond, source of the Gembe, a river that flows through the city. Many traces of volcanic activity can be seen, as the park was built on land formed by lava flows when Mt. Fuji erupted ten thousand years ago. The building called Rakujukan which stands in the park was constructed as a second home for Prince Akihito of Komatsu in 1890. The sliding paper doors and ceilings inside are decorated with elegant and beautiful pictures. There are also other attractions (for example Dobustu Fureai Hiroba, a small petting zoo area), and everyone from children to adults can have fun.
