Loved walking in this park amongst big old trees. Quite a big pond although this season waters low. Interesting rock formations. Wooden house in park, old imperial holiday house. Has mini zoo.. some interesting food stalls, huge chrysanthemums!

This is a really beautiful park in Mishima. It's a reasonable size and the two occasions I've been there, has not been overly crowded. Sadly, the lake has mostly dried up, apparently due to the intensive water demands of a nearby manufacturing/chemical company, a local...More

The vines themselves are still quite young and the wine itself isnt great although their rose I find their best. But the restaurants and area and facilities they have surrounding it is lovely.

I think it is no problem (as long as you keep the park clean ;-) There is a small restaurant inside the park as well, at the station entrance
