Being mainly mountains, Suruga is not well suited to farming. The capital, Sumpu, is the main stronghold of the Imagawa clan and has a long tradition of political bickering. Tokugawa Ieyasu apparently retired to Suruga, although he quietly set up a second court to continue his rule out of the public gaze. The last Shogun, Yoshinobu, also came to Suruga to retire, but was refused permission to live at Sumpu Castle by the newly-restored Meiji regime.
