Sumpu Castle Park

About

The park is located on the former site of Sunpu Castle where the first Shogun of Tokugawa Shogunate lived in retirement. Surrounded by moats and stone walls in all directions, and on the southeast side, the east gate for the secondary enclosure of the castle and the Tatsumi keep were reconstructed. They were faithfully reproduced based on the old documents in 1638.The wooden castle building with a half-hipped roof is a few in number in Japan. The east gate is a practically designed gate with such defensive devices as machicolations for dropping stones and gun-loops. Inside the keep, the drawing of the castle, restoration documents and excavated articles are exhibited. At the northern part of the park,. Momijiyama (lit. Maple Mountain) garden was made in 2001. Four gardens featuring scenic spots of this region are beautiful in each season, moreover, at the Sukiya-style tea ceremony house, visitors can enjoy having a ceremonial tea.
