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.
