Nagoya Castle is, no doubt, one of the most popular touristic spot in Nagoya.
The castle had been originally built between 1610 and 12 but unfortunatelly destroyed during the last world war.

This palace is a masterpiece of traditinal Japanese construction so called Shoin. Mimics of the authentic paintings and the decorations will breath-takingly attract you.
