Within Okazaki Castle and Okazaki Park is a museum dedicated to the Chubu Region’s favorite son, Okazaki native Tokugawa Ieyasu, and the famed warriors of central Japan, the Mikawa Bushi. Mikawa Bushi was the collective name of the region’s warriors; a title worn with great pride. The Museum is split into sections chronicling the rise and influence of Shogun Tokugawa Iyeyasu – the founder and first leader of the Tokugawa shogunate of Japan which ruled from the Battle of Sekigahara in 1600 until the Meiji Restoration in 1868.
The museum itself is small but is well supplied with artifacts, and although foreign visitors are supplied with an English brochure on admission, the exhibits themselves are unfortunately displayed in Japanese only. General admission is 350 yen or 500 yen if you choose to include entrance to the Castle with your ticket as well.
