Takane Castle Ruins高根城跡
These ruins are located in Mizukubo-cho Town, Tenryu Ward, Hamamatsu City. They were built in 1414, during the Northern and Southern Dynasties Period, by local feudal lord the Okuyama clan for the purpose of protecting Emperor Go-Daigo's grandson Prince Yukiyoshi. During the Sengoku Period, it was probably renovated as a base for an invasion of Totomi by the Takeda army from Kai. Currently, the kuruwa (flat ground in the castle divided by the earthwork/moat/stone wall), yagura (turrets), main building, and castle gates are being reconstructed based on excavation research findings.

Shizuoka Main Areas
With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan’s largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
