It took 20 min from the Hamamatsu station to walk to the castle. There is a good walking path and Japanese garden to enjoy after long meeting at the congress center.

I understand there is a bus that can take you to the Hamamatsu Castle but we decided to take a leisure walk instead. We were at a hotel by the train station and it took about 20-25 minutes. The castle is not as big as...More

The castle itself is not something that is tremendously interesting, but it sits at the top of the park, and provides a nice focus for a walk in the park.
