  • Parking lot is. Using the Hamamatsu Castle, Hamamatsu Castle Park is free. Go Castle and Park both scale out to go smaller, on the other, as good as is.

  • Because it was close to the hotel, went partly for a morning walk. From the train station is about 20 minutes on foot. Castle was a little small, but is a good stone wall. Young made around the beautiful if you look at the square with the statue of Ieyasu's Ginkgo trees and foliage season would be.

  • I think it might take quite a walk from the North exit of JR hamamatsucho station, so go there by bus from City Hall here was good. Castle is not large, and takes a fall prevention network, vistas of the city outside is not surprising. 140 years Buri was rebuilding the Castle gate is beautiful at picapia.
