  • Located between Asama shrine with Shizuoka station, has become a place of rest of the Shizuoka city. Remnants of sunpu Castle has a moat and Ieyasu hand planted orange. Are restoring the gate stands a large statue of Ieyasu in the castle ruins is no longer completely Park and a pity. By the way you can visit the gate at an additional cost.

  • Shizuoka place is after it becomes the Meiji era, to sunpu castle called Shizuoka Castle, and also I heard not. Seems to be quite a large Castle was Castle Tower excavation at sunpu Castle in sunpu Park as has been understood. Drawings, documents and is not discovered was hoping restoration reconstruction of the Castle, but unfortunately what Castle. Pray that can't build reconstruction studying of regional Museum of irresponsible speculation because somehow you'll find Castle Tower drawings of Ieyasu, etc..

  • In the center of Shizuoka city. Walking from the station immediately. Spacious and quiet. Ieyasu period shall not, in the park surrounded by moats around. Currently, the stone wall of the castle of Ieyasu dig in can look significant portion. This is a sight to see.
