 Shiroyama Park is one of the city’s most important attractions. The site of the current castle was the final stronghold of the 9th and 10th generations of the Satomi clan of feudal lords who ruled the southern Chiba area (Awa) from here around 400 years ago. The city rebuilt the location into Shiroyama Park (Shiroyama Koen). Located in the park is the restored castle that contains a Hakkenden Museum, several walking paths, a peacock aviary, and Tateyama City Municipal Museum. You can look down on the Tateyama cityscape from the observation platform at the top.

 Tateyama Yuhi Sanbashi is located next to the Nagisa no Eki Tateyama. Many ships stop by at a pier throughout the year and it is the longest pier in Japan. The sunset from pier is very beautiful and it is like you are on the surface of sea water.
