In between the Kakegawa Castle and the Palace (二の丸御殿) is the Tea Room (二の丸茶室), it was a nice surprise to have a chance to try the green tea produced right at Kakegawa prepared by the tea master!
Before we left Kakegawa, we also visited the Kakegawa Castle (掛川城天守閣). This is my first time in a Japanese castle and it was great seeing one.
After spending a night at Kakegawa, we were heading out to out next destination – Osaka. But not before we explored a little bit more of Kakegawa and it’s castle. Here are some photos around the city of Kakegawa.
Our friends at Kakegawa took us to an Iris garden and it is a great experience visiting a traditional Japanese villa that has a sunroom for the flowers when they are not in season. Iris are not blooming in this season but we did get to see a lot of them in the sunroom. But before I show you the sunroom, I would like to show you the villa.
