Nagoya Castle | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Nagoya Station 

[Nagoya Castle]

Symbol of Nagoya, the glittering Kinshachi (Golden dolphin)

Nagoya Castle was built by Ieyasu Tokugawa as the final base for unifying his empire and flourished as the Owari Tokugawa family residence and seat of government. The majestic five-layered, seven-storied castle tower was regrettably destroyed during the World War II, but was rebuilt in 1959. The Honmarugoten that was also burned down during the war is now under restoration and is scheduled to be completed in 2018. The Genkan and Omote-shoin (drawing room) have been open to the public since 2013, and the Taimenjo and Shimogozensho will be open from June 2016.
