  • Hamamatsu Castle, known as Castle of Ieyasu. Hamamatsu is located in the prefectures of Aichi Prefecture and Shizuoka Prefecture West and the largest city in Shizuoka Prefecture, Japan. About 800000 people population, are more than the capital city of Shizuoka city. Very famous Act (212 m), and boasts of the largest city in the prefecture. Castle en route to a major monzeki to confirm (there were explanatory signs on the side of the road) to the tower when it comes! Stacked stone wall Hamamatsu Castle was originally one of the castles of the Imagawa clan in the Sengoku period, but nowadays is like current fortification technology do not yet exist, seems like a tent. Iio's vassals ruled region after the decline of the Imagawa clan, but was captured by Ieyasu (location of the Hamamatsu Castle now), its castle. Of course at this time no stone technology. Stacked stone walls and build majestic castles and advanced technology are upward in by the tremendous power of Hideyoshi's first rally of the engineers and laborers and realized something. Current Hamamatsu Castle by Ieyasu after the Edo shogunate made the Castle, Hideyoshi-era Hamamatsu Castle was something spectacular of course with a stone wall, but by Ieyasu to complete has been buried so. That's like chest destroyed around Hideyoshi's Castle, Hideyoshi Osaka Castle during the Edo period Osaka Castle was destroyed, as the Tokugawa Osaka Castle was rebuilt again. Symbolizes power, but also I do not want to be. Is that this area is Hamamatsu Castle, some tried to bigwigs from City Hall North building next to the large side this time. But is the current tower was restored, a small but elegant? Are filled. Next to the Town Hall from suguar Castle, so this area tired so much. By the way, you can encounter of the young in the middle of this area when Ieyasu. Billed as the "young Tokugawa Ieyasu". And by the way of Tokugawa Ieyasu in Hamamatsu Castle during the Edo period, often displacing, the Lords have come most ranks; It is also a somewhat unlucky looks like Castle. There dad and pray for success would you like? Such prayers will come true. (It's shrines and temples not) and is not telling anyone but. (Lol) Castle overlooking the town, but far to the sea could not be seen. Would often not know remnants of Hideyoshi and the dense forests in it is buried a lot of precious historical relics of the Momoyama period.
