Sumpu (Sunpu) Castle 駿府城


Except for some moats and stone walls, very little is left of Sumpu (Sunpu) Castle, known as Tokugawa Ieyasu's retirement home. Two castle structures have been reconstructed: The Tatsumi Yagura Turret and Higashi Gomon Gate. It is within the spacious Sumpu Park whose fringe is occupied by prefectural and city government buildings and schools. A short walk from Shizuoka Station.
