The event takes place at Hamamatsu Castle otherwise known as Shusse Castle (Castle of Success). This is in part due to Tokugawa Ieyasu, a former inhabitant of the castle, who established the foundation to unify Japan in his youth, and several later inhabitants who were appointed to important positions in the Edo shogunate that came after him. The event’s main purpose is to share history, culture, and Hamamatsu’s charms.
The venue comes to life through guest-hosted talk shows, stage performances by Bushotai groups, and Sengoku period-themed cosplay events.
