    Kusanagi station is the next station west of SHIMIZU and two stops east of SHIZUOKA station of Tokaido Main Line (東海道本線). It is the Tokaido Main Line station closest to SHIZUOKA PREFECTURAL MUSEUM OF ART (静岡県立美術館)and there are some bus services available to the museum from the station. It is often used to change trains for Shizuoka Tetsudo (静岡鉄道) Line leading to YUNOKI (柚木) close to GOKOKU SHRINE(護国神社) and SHIN-SHIZUOKA close to Sumpu Castle because Kusanagi station of Shizuoka Tetsudo Line is only two minutes walk away.

    From Outer Moat to Momijiyama Garden

    Outer Moat and Stone Wall
    3 more images

    The outer moat of the Sumpu (Shizuoka) castle runs opposite of Shizuoka Municipal Hall. Usually Shizuoka residents cross the bridge to Prefectural Government Offices and go through the passage between the prefectural office buildings. Then you see the bridge to cross the central moat. When you get inside the park, you will encounter the circular road. Either way you will reach the garden. If you would like to visit the statue of Iyeyasu and the site of Donjon Base, turn left. If you would like to see the East gate and Tatsumi Tower first turn right.

    Go under the tourist office

    Sunpu Park is built upon the ruins of Sunpu(Shizuoka) castle and it takes about 15 minutes on foot from JR Shizuoka station. After getting brochures at the north exit office of the tourist information get under the office by getting down the stairs. When you go straight ahead you will first see the underground floor of Matsuzakaya then turn the leftward passage and follow the direction for Sunpu castle. At the end of underground passage go up and follow along the busy street then you will find the underground passage again(Photo #4) then after going up on the road, look for the Shizuoka Municipal Hall building(photo #5). If you can see the building you are on the right road. Then you begin to see the outer moat of the castle. Follow along the outer moat and you will be able to get inside the castle ruins easily.

    SHINKANSEN/BULLET TRAIN

    by cheesecake17 Updated May 5, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    The Shinkansen, the fastest train in the country is divided into two kinds of trains, depending on their speed:

    1) The "Hikari" ("Light"), the fastest one, usually DOES NOT often stop in Shizuoka Prefecture. When it does it occasionally serves Shizuoka and very rarely Hamamatsu and Atami.

    2) The "Kodama" ("Echo") serves all Shinkansen stations at: Atami, Mishima, Shi-Fuji (not to be confused with Fuji), Shizuoka, Kakegawa and Hamamatsu

    TRAIN TRAVEL IN JAPAN

    by kiwigal_1 Written Jun 21, 2004

    Shinkansen

    The Shinkansen is by far the most convenient way to travel around Japan. Unfortunately it isn't very cheap! Luckily there is a Japan JR Rail Pass available to foreign travellers. See the JR East website for details:

    It must be bought abroad and stamped in Japan before you can use it. There are several options including one week (unlimited JR travel except for the super fast Nozomi service), two week, JR East and JR West passes. Check with your local travel agent for the best option or click on the link to see for yourself!

    Here is a link to a very cool page that lets you see the routing between cities/stations/ports within Japan. It will tell you the route and includes the cost and time. http://www.jorudan.co.jp/english/norikae/.

    Shizuoka has convenient traffic systems. Tomei Highway and Shinkansen superexpress railway run through the prefecture. Shizuoka City is situated at just the middle point between Tokyo and Nagoya. It takes about 1.5 hours to Shizuoka City by Shinkansen superexpress from either of the cities.


    I live in Mishima City where it takes 1 hour from Tokyo by Shinkansen.
    The picture shows Shizuoka City, Izu Peninsula, and stations in the peninsula.

    Always buy a Japan Railpass if you are travelling in Japan. You can buy this Pass only abroad and not in Japan. The price is really worth it - Just one or two trips and you already start to save money.
