Shizuoka castle, Shizuoka

2.5
Original walls and a moat dating from the end of the 16th century surround Shizuoka castle, once an important feudal fortress from the Edo period. See the original gate and window-like holes used to place weapons. Inside the reconstructed castle, you can observe the model of the original structure and displays of the archeological artifacts related to the ruins. Take the English-language audio guide and roam freely through the minimalist rooms. Wrap up you visit with a hot beverage from the teahouse, located in the lush onsite garden.
