Nagoya Station 

[Nagoya City Archives]

A beautiful Neo-Baroque building that houses the city archives

This beautiful piece of Neo-Baroque architecture was built in 1922, during the Taisho period, to house the Nagoya Court of Appeals, District Court, and Ward Court. It has housed the city archives since 1989, the first year of the Heisei period. The building is open to visitors, and reservations are not required. It is as though the building time-slipped from nearly a century ago, and it offers a glimpse of the past. The huge stained-glass windows on the ceiling, the marble steps, and the restored meeting room complete with reproduced wallpaper, furniture, and fixtures—soak in the stately atmosphere of this historic building. The exterior also has quite the presence on the city streets, and it’s no surprise that professional productions have been filmed here.
