Ninomaru Teahouse 二の丸茶室
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the taste of Shizuoka in this gorgeous teahouse
Shizuoka is home to some of Japan's best tea leaves and you can experience them from close to the source at this quaint teahouse. Make sure to purchase a ticket to the teahouse from the Kakegawa Castle entrance.
How to Get There
Ninomaru Teahouse is in the grounds of Kakegawa Castle, a 12-minute walk north of Kakegawa Station.
Kakegawa is an hour from Nagoya or 20 minutes from Shizuoka City by Kodama shinkansen.
Set in beautiful surroundings just below Kakegawa Castle, Ninomaru Teahouse is just the place to unwind after sightseeing in this beautiful town. The tearoom is built in the style of a one-level wooden villa with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the gardens so they can be enjoyed regardless of the weather. You can take part in a traditional tea ceremony or simply sit back and enjoy the local tea and sweets at reasonable prices and a welcoming environment.
After tea time
The castle grounds are a great place to explore after you have finished your tea. If you happen to be there on the first or third Sunday of the month, you might catch a glimpse of a tour guide dressed as a ninja. Head to the Ninomaru Museum located close to the teahouse to browse their collection of Japanese paintings, smoking implements, and swords.
