[Mikawa Bushi and Ieyasu Museum]
Also introducing the great samurai warriors who wielded great influence over Lord Ieyasu
These archives illustrate the life of Ieyasu Tokugawa and the samurai of Mikawa who supported him. The facility lies within Okazaki Park, the park around Okazaki Castle where Lord Ieyasu was born. It really is one of the places you should visit when strolling around the town exploring its historic sites. Inside the building, the history of the Matsudaira family, who produced Lord Ieyasu, and the Sengoku warriors who greatly influenced him are introduced in detail. Visitors will enjoy learning about the charms of the Sengoku period through answering a video quiz, and by trying on the armor (free of charge).
