Kakegawa Station

Kakegawa Station is the perfect stop for anyone who loves green tea. It is for people who are looking for something a little more personal, a little more intimate and for those who believe the journey is more important than the destination.

Kakegawa is another popular stop on the Tokaido Road and is still today an especially good place to stop for a cup of tea and take a break from the long journey.

Spend a day wandering around the small castle town, enjoying some of the best green tea, and friendliest local hospitality, in the World or take a short trip through acres of green tea plantations to the sleepy coastal towns of Omaezaki and Makinohara. You won’t be disappointed.

Things to Do

Kakegawa City – Within easy walking distance of the station is one of Japan’s most unique castles and the castle grounds which include a tea ceremony house, an original Samurai Lord’s manor, a samurai armour shop and stain glass museum, a bird park full of exotic birds from around the world that you can feed and many great little restaurants and shops.

Fukuroi City – Within half and hour of Kakegawa there are many Zen temples in Fukuroi, which is also the home of Ecopa Stadium

Makinohara & Omaezaki – Green Tea Plantation paradise of Makinohara or the Coastal surf town Omaezaki.

Kawanehoncho – A little further afield is the small mountain village Kawane and Sumatakyo Hot spring area which are well worth the journey.

Getting there and around

Step off the bullet train at Kakegawa Station and you are in the castle town of Kakegawa and accessible from this station by Tokaido Local train is Fukuroi (7 minutes) or Shin Kanaya (31 mins) from which you can take the Steam Locomotive to Sumatakyo Gorge.

Omaezaki and Makinohara are accessible by bus, rental car or taxi (between 30 – 40 minutes). But if the weather is good, and you have one, a bicycle is by far the best way to go as you can cycle through vast green tea plantations all the way from the station to the ocean!
