Ieyasu Tokugawa lived at Hamamatsu Castle for 17 years before becoming the first head of the Edo Shogunate that ruled Japan for 260 years. Successive lords of Hamamatsu Castle received influential positions in the shogunate, earning it the nickname Castle of Advancement. Shouin-tei is a teahouse in Hamamatsu Castle Park, designed by architect Yoshio Taniguchi.
