  • Walking along the walls of the wheel. Admission is free, but if you don't have time to park inside the star's past.

  • It seems a little far to walk from Shizuoka station. To overcome heavy traffic roads, up and down the stairs, walked through an underpass or felt far away. At sight stone walls around takes about ten minutes from Shizuoka station, passing East Mikado and Tatsumi Yagura was over 20 minutes. That moment looked at Higashi Mikado and Tatsumi Yagura, the gate to the Park... honestly was disappointed.

  • At that time in the moat and stone walls are systematically Park. Excavations of the Castle Tower at Castle in the tower and gate is restored. Located in the heart of the city is quiet in the Park. This is recommended because the ruins of turf was excellent and the views from the observation deck of the Prefectural Office annexe (free).
