After a great time in Kawaguchiko, we had to head off to Mishima to get the Bullet Train to Kyoto.
There’s not a great deal to do in Mishima but it was a pleasant enough place to visit for a day before getting the train.
Our hotel – Toyoko-inn hotel as seen from the bus/train terminus.
Mount Fuji as seen from our hotel.
The hotel lobby cum breakfast area.
Help yourself to a razor, comb and soap if you need it.
The train line runs through the town. There’s Mount Fuji in the distance. In this part of Japan, you are never too far away from Mount Fuji.
A very cute water feature in the town.
I love the artwork on this shutter.
Pond with Koi swimming around in it.
We stopped off for a bite to eat in this restaurant.
The food was lovely (yet again) and the lovely lady who served us gave us a lucky coin at the end of our meal that I still have to this day.
We spent a couple of hours wandering around Mishima Park.
Mishima Train Station (waiting for the Bullet Train)
Toyoko-inn hotel is a good choice because it’s a very short walk away from the train station.
Again, spotlessly clean train station. Don’t stand too close to the edge though because when those Bullet Trains fly through they produce a hell of a lot of wind.
All the cars/carriages are marked on the floor so you know where to stand.
