Rakujuen

Museum / Science Museum
This is a park around a three-minute walk from JR Mishima Station, on a site run by Mishima City and originally used as a villa for Prince Komatsu Akihito that was built in 1890. Surrounded by rich forest the park is home to 160 varieties of trees and plants and, depending on the season, 30 species of birds as well. The garden surrounding Ohama Pond is designated as a Natural Monument of Japan and a Place of Scenic Beauty. It is a popular park for families, with its Norimono Hiroba area featuring a merry-go-round and miniature train, and the Dobutsu Hiroba (“Animal Area”) where one can enjoy petting small creatures. Admission is required for the park.
