12th STATION on the OLD TOKAIDO ROAD
Two-thirds of the city is hilly, with the most prominent feature Mount Fuji.
Mishima is on the Shinkansen (Bullet Train) rail network, less than an hour from Tokyo.
Local products include: white radish, Chinese cabbage, and potatoes. Mishima is famous for its spring water, which comes from the snow of Mt Fuji.
From 1399-1568 the power of the shogun declined, and their eventual defeat lead to 300 hundred years of peace and relative isolation. In 1941, Mishima was incorporated as a city.
