As part of Japan’s current push to get more foreign tourists, the Mishima Municipal Government recently launched a smartphone-friendly multilingual website to share information about tourism and history in Japanese, English, Chinese, Korean and Thai.

The website http://mishimatourism.jp helps with trip planning and actual travel as it carries a wealth of content including information on Mishima City’s tourist spots, handson tours, recommended model courses, seasonal picks, tours of surrounding areas, and restaurants.

Situated in the eastern part of Shizuoka Prefecture, central Japan, this city is about one hour from Tokyo by Shinkansen bullet train and home to the historic Mishima Taisha Shrine, the Mishima Skywalk, Japan’s longest suspended bridge, and beautiful streams running through the city. 

The number of foreign tourists visiting the city has been rising in recent years as the city serves as a gateway to neighbouring sightseeing destinations such as Mt Fuji and the Izu Peninsula. The cycling competitions for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games will be held in Izu City.
