Main Operation
Volunteer activities such as tourist information and interpreters
Members will coordinate volunteer interpretation and guide activities, and will guide the main tourist attractions in this area such as Nagoya Castle, Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology, Atsuta Jingu, Osu, Arimatsu, etc. in English, Spanish, Chinese, etc. Today, Nagoya Castle is, no doubt, one of the most popular touristic spot in Nagoya. In the Edo period, it was a beautiful but strong fortress. The castle tower was rebuilt in 1959, but there are still a lot of devices which protect against enemies. Please find them along with our guides. Fish-shaped gold ornaments are shining on top of the roof. If you like, you can take your photos with them. We'll take your photos for you. From season to season, you will also enjoy various flowers and blossoms. If you are lucky, you can meet The shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu who was the founder of this castle, his Samurai warriors, and even ninja! We guide many foreigners from all over the world throughout the year
