Hamamatsu Castle Park (浜松城公園)

Event

This park in the Naka Ward of Hamamatsu City in Shizuoka Prefecture was built around Hamamatsu Castle, where Tokugawa Ieyasu once resided. The grounds feature facilities like a large lawn, a Japanese garden, an art museum, and a children’s pool. It’s a popular leisure area for the locals and the foremost cherry blossom viewing spot in Hamamatsu. Roughly 340 trees bloom here in spring, including Yoshino, weeping, and double-flowered cherry trees. Visitors love the charming scene of the stone ramparts and black castle facade offset by with the vivid color of the cherry blossoms. A cherry blossom festival is held during peak season from late March to early April, when 600 paper lanterns light up the blossoms at night. Toilets, shops and free parking available.

          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.
