4 Shizuoka Tokugawa Ieyasu at Sumpu Park More About Shizuoka There is something special about Shizuoka. So special, in fact, that after many years of waging bitter war in his successful quest to unite the divided Japanese archipelago into one country, Tokugawa Ieyasu decided to settle, from all his many choices, in Shizuoka (then Sumpu). Thereupon he lived his remaining years in comfortable semi-retirement, and beginning in 1603, Japan entered into the unprecedented 265-year Edo Era of peace under the Tokugawa Shognate.
