4.0

Other Historic Site/Building

This turret is located in the southwest corner of the Ninomaru of Sumpu Castle in Aoi Ward, Shizuoka City, Shizuoka Prefecture. It was demolished in the Ansei Earthquake of 1854, and had not been rebuilt. Then, in 2011, reconstruction work began and then finished April 2, 2014. It has been open to the public since April 3rd, 2014. The exterior features a double roof, while the interior has a 3-story structure. The interior of the turret has some of the floor as glass, and some parts of the 2nd and 3rd story floor taken out so you can see the structure better. In addition, you can watch a video showing the history of Sumpu Castle and the reconstruction work, or get a 3rd story view of the surroundings from the 1st floor thanks to camera video.

巽櫓は、駿府城二ノ丸の東南角に設けられた二重三階の隅櫓で、十二支であらわした巽(辰巳)の方角に位置することから「巽櫓」と呼ばれたそうです。駿府城には天守閣がないので、お堀や東門など、駿府城の面影を残す数少ない場所です。
Reviewed:2020/01/08 公園内に門と櫓が
現在は天守台の発掘などをしているので他にも見どころはありましたが東御門と坤櫓以外は見るところがありません。また、駐車場からだと北門から入りますが中堀を下り東御門から入ったほうががっかりしないかもしれません。

          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.
