An important industrial hub with a sizable immigrant population from South America, Hamamatsu has developed a taste for international cuisine and arts. Climb the only skyscraper in the city for a sweeping panorama of the largest city in Shizuoka, or explore castle ruins from the 16th century and a restored 17th-century traffic checkpoint. Among things to do in Hamamatsu are visits to art and science museums, art galleries, city parks, and various festivals year-round. The city provides a wide array of activities with a great deal of ethnic stores, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Easily explored on foot, the city also has an excellent public transportation network. Go for a picnic on the vast sand dunes, spend a day a rafting on the Tenryu River, and visit Buddhist monasteries in the serene mountain setting.
