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.

Counted as one of Japan's 100 Scenic Places, Nihondaira is a plateau offering great views of Mt. Fuji. Another major attraction is Kunozan Toshogu Shrine, the original burial place of Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu. The shrine recently got a new coat of paint and lacquer, making it a magnificent work of art.
