    The Japan Times

    by taigaa001 Written Nov 1, 2011
    The only English-language paper you may find...

    Favorite thing: In local areas of Japan, it may be difficult to get English Language paper on the station stand. The Japan Times is not the only English newspaper in Japan but in Mishima it is the only one available. Newstand price is 180 yen per issue. You may, however, not be able to find even Japan Times with the exception of larger cities such as Shizuoka and Hamamatsu. The good things about Japan Times is there are lots of local information about Japan.

    Mishima Tourist Information Office

    A nice office

    Favorite thing: Tourist Information office is at the south exit side of Mishima station. They have brochures written in English, Chinese and Korean. But as far as I have seen there's no English language brochure or map of Yamanaka Castle(fort). So ask the maps of YAMANAKAJO and TOKAIDO MAP to the office staff.

    Cement Rivers

    by chodearm Updated Oct 20, 2004
    see-ment river

    Favorite thing: I try to envision this scene minus the hand of humans involved and I come to no conclusion. At some point, maybe a couple thousand years prior to me laying eyes here, this river created a velvet blanket covering Fujis discharges. I might have been wider, it might have been narrower. The shorelines have a definate straight line when in its early years the shores were contoured. Its sad to see this structuring of mother natures creations, robbing it of 90% of its natural state.

    canals

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    woman and rake

    Favorite thing: Mishima is the city of water. Its everywhere, passing through the streets above and below. Canals line some thoroughfares and can be followed to a pond, park or to a river rushing with madness to the ocean. Houses set on the other side from the street have driveway crossings above and over the canal forming series of bridges. Picturesque..........? Yes, why indeed.

    Fondest memory: I remember little old woman scraping these canals clean with turn of the century rakes.
