“Beautiful central site in Shizuoka City for walking”
Review of Shizuoka castle

Shizuoka castle
Ranked #9 of 271 things to do in Shizuoka
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 July 2013

The outer walls and moat are intact. It's a great park for walking. Modern prefectural buildings are all around so it's a nice contrast. Within an easy walk of Shizuoka Station.

Don't let the name mislead you - Sumpu Jo Koen (Sumpu castle Park) is made up of a large park surrounded by the original moats and the outer wall mostly intact. However, apart from the entrance gate and turret - there is no castle here as it burnt down a long time ago.

Not much remains of the actual castle but the stone fortifications, moats, and some gate buildings remain. There is a also a beautiful garden inside with a small admission charge. You can drink nice green tea at a tea house in this garden. I will return to this park again!
