『Tourist guide training course in Shizuoka ~Sunpu Castle Park~ 』

Hello, Shizuoka TaaS.
I visited Sunpu Castle Park as part of my tourist guide training course,
I would like to tell you about what I saw there.


How could there be a place like this in the city?
Shizuoka is a place where history is close at hand.

I observed the stone walls and checked the differences in the way they were stacked as I was taught in the classroom.
There are indeed several different types of masonry combined.

 Walking along, you will see Yaji (left) and Kita (right) standing in front of the East Gate, with the Tatsumi Tower in the background and a set of benches. The statue was erected to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Tokaido Chu Hizakurige by Jippensha Ikku, a native of Shizuoka City.            


Enter through the East Gate. The East Gate was restored in 1996 using traditional Japanese construction methods and opened to the public as a museum.

As you move on, you will see a bronze statue of Ieyasu.
The statue depicts Ieyasu as he was when he moved to Sunpu as the ‘oogosyo’. Ieyasu spent about 10 years in Sunpu from the age of 65 in his later years until his death at the age of 75.

The castle has not been restored and looks like a construction site.
A tourist guide showed us an imaginary drawing of the castle.
I heard that if you become a guide, you can get various materials.
Even if you don’t have any knowledge, I think you can enjoy the tour with the guide’s explanation.
I think you can enjoy the tour with the guide’s explanation even if you have no knowledge. I recommend a tour guide.
