Hamamatsu Castle

  • Castles & Historical Sites
The castle is nicknamed the Shusse ("Success") Castle, since Tokugawa Ieyasu spent 17 years of his prime here. From late March, 360 cherry blossom trees are in full bloom and surround the main keep. Crowds continue to gather even in the evenings. It’s recommended to take a walk through the Japanese garden and enjoy the seasonal sights.
