  • It's a relaxing place to walk in good weather and get away from the rush of downtown Shizuoka. I've heard rumors of plans to rebuild the castle keep, which would be interesting to see.  more »
  • It is a park. Seems to be your Castle so far is only the Tatsumi Yagura. Statue of Ieyasu and see your hand orange "might want to relax and watch. It was around the City Hall and police headquarters building is a medieval atmosphere
