Nagoya Station 

[Kiyosu Castle]

Nobunaga's dream of a unified nation began here

"Kiyosu Castle" was the starting point for Nobunaga's unification of Japan, and was the important historic base in his war of conquest where he gathered his forces for the battle of Okehazama, held the Kiyosu Conference and so on. The castle town prospered as an economic and cultural center of the Owari province (the western part of modern-day Aichi Prefecture) until 1610, when the capital moved to Nagoya. The present castle tower was reconstructed in 1989 based on the appearance and scale of the original.
