HamaHana (Hanami in Hamamatsu!) hosted by ShizAJET

Hamamatsu Castle Park
100-2, Motoshiro-cho, Naka-ku, Hamamatsu-shi, Shizuoka-ken
LET’S HANAMI! YEAH!
Hanami. It’s literal meaning is “flower viewing”, and the philosophy behind hanami is to enjoy the fleeting beauty of the delicate flower, which falls from the trees at its peak of bloom. It’s also an excuse to get together with food and beer in the middle of the daytime in public! So let’s enjoy food and beer and flowers together in Hamamatsu Castle Park!
We’re going to try and reserve a spot early in the morning with a tarp.
Please bring your own food, drinks, and a small blanket or mat to sit on, etc. Sharable snacks are more than welcome. 🙂
You can pick up food at Hamamatsu Station: There are a couple of bento shops, a supermarket, a McDonald’s and various conbini in/around the station. There’s also a FamilyMart and a 7-11 a few blocks away from the castle.
How do I get to Hamamatsu Castle Park?
It’s easy! Take the JR Tokaido line to Hamamatsu Station. From the station, you can either walk to the castle, or take a bus. You can take any bus from Bus Terminal #13 and get off at 浜松城公園入口 ”Hamamatsu-jo-koen-iriguchi” (“Entrance of Hamamatsu Castle Park”). The #50 bus departs every 15 minutes. It costs 140 yen and takes about 5 minutes. You can also take any bus which is heading to City Hall (市役所南 “Shiyakusho-minami” or 市役所前 “Shiyakusho-mae”).
