[Footpath around Genbe River]

A clear stream rich with nature running through the city's towns

Genbe River is a clear stream running through the towns of Mishima City from its source, the spring waters of Kohama Pond in Rakujuen city park, to the Nakazato water heating reservoir. The river is a paradise for water-dwelling creatures like the rare Japanese eight-barbel loach. With stepping stones and a walkway having been constructed, visitors will find it easy to enjoy the familiar feel of the nature here. Wild fireflies can be seen around early May.
