Sunpu jōdai

Sunpu jōdai (駿府城代) were officials of the Tokugawa shogunate with responsibility for holding and defending Sunpu Castle (Sunpu-jō), also called Shizuoka Castle.[1]

Appointments to the prominent office of castle warden at Shizuoka were exclusively fudai daimyō.[2] Conventional interpretations have construed this Japanese titles as "commissioner" or "overseer" or "governor."
