Let’s stroll the waterfront city, Mishima! It is located at the south side of the foot of Mt. Fuji and has an abundant of underflow water from the mountain. Our hike starts from a shrine where 80 red Toriis are lined up. In a residential area, 5 minutes from the shrine, is a huge waterfall. Take this opportunity to take photos of the waterfall and Mt. Fuji together if the weather is clear. 30 minutes from the waterfall is a Japanese garden which is designated as a natural treasure. Walk through the park and see the lava formation caused by the eruption of Mt. Fuji 10,000 years ago. Next, we will walk on a trail along Genbei River for 15 minutes. Take off your shoes and soak your feet in the limpid stream. Return on a paved road and keep walking until we arrive at the heart of Mishima, the Mishima Shrine.
