    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.
