Hamamatsujuku and Maisakajuku were post stations of the Tokaido in the
Edo period. They were located in the present Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka prefecture.
Hamamatsu is famous for Hamamatsu Castle in which Tokugawa Ieyasu, the
first Shogun of the Tokugawa Shogunate, lived when he was young. In Hamamatsu,
there are many shrines and temples connected with Ieyasu.
In the Edo period, travelers crossed Lake Hamana from Maisakajuku by ferry. Lake Hamana has been noted for producing Unagi (broiled eel).
If you visit Hamamatsu, you can enjoy delicious Unagi dishes while viewing the beautiful Lake Hamana.
