Getting To Hanashi
Hanashi-chiku of Fujieda city is very wide area but bus services are available to explore this area. Unfortunately, however, there are no direct bus line services from either Fujieda or Nishi-Yaizu station. For starters I recommend Chubu-Kokudo （中部国道） Line from either Shizuoka or Fujieda to FUJIEDA-OTE （藤枝大手） bus stop. Then you take another bus line, Hanashi-sen（葉梨線)
from Fujieda Ote bus stop. Fujieda-Ote bus stop of Hanashi-sen is not easy to find because you have to walk about 100 meter northward from Fujieda-Ote intersection of Tokaido Road. You may have to wait long hours because there are only one bus service an hour. Then you have to choose the right bus stop depending on where you want to go.
To get to Shirafuji Waterfall...get off at MITSUISHI（三ツ石） BUS STOP and walk about thirty minutes.
To get to Bankyakuin（盤脚院） Temple and Fujieda Dai-Kannon（藤枝大観音）get off at YAMADERA-IRIGUCHI（山寺入口）Bus stop.
From Fujieda Station To Rengejiike Park
To get to Rengejiike Park and Okabe area from Fujieda station, it is convenient to take a bus from JR Fujieda station. Chubu-kokudo line is a bus service between Shin Shizuoka and Fujieda.
**To get to Rengejiike Park
Take a bus bound for Shin Shizuoka from Fujieda station. (photo#1) Get off at Rengejiike-Koen-Iriguchi Bus stop. First go toward Renshoji temple and at the gate of the temple turn left and after joining the road along the hill turn right until you find a huge pond. Bus fee is 220 yen for adult. 110 yen for children(12 or under). For little children (ages 1-5), accompanied by each adult or child (6 or older) two under-5 children are free of charge. So if a family made of of parents and two children aged 7 and 4, the total bus fee will be 440+110+0 550 yen.
