There is a slow moving river that has the clearest water I have ever seen moseying down through the center of the city. The walk is like a controlled rock jumping mission that you would do on a babbling brook through the mountains. The runoff is from Mt. Fuji being that Mishima sits in the wake of its Volcanic meltdown down in the valley. When arriving theres usually kids there looking for frogs or butterflies, and the scene is so serene and peaceful. It seems the people are there completely appreciating what the earth is giving them.
Susono is real small town living in Japan. Once again I'm the only white man in sight, thats great. Our home falls into Mishima and Susono but more apart of Mishima. Susono is littered with Temples and home that a re still barely standing. Its also a place with normal everyday living needs, in that they have huge American sized supermarkets, this can be good and bad.
Time Bell in Mishima alongside the Genbe river is one of the popular scenic sites in Mishima. Genbe river comes from a spring in Rakujuen Park and walking along the Genbe river is quite refreshing.
Fuji from a spotting in Mishima. I would just ride my bike through these farms and rice paddys and then every second there would be another view of this momma always looming over me.
