Nagoya Castle, first built in the 1610s, was a major, strategic fortress in present-day Nagoya. Most of the castle was destroyed in World War 2 air raids; however, there is an excellent, authentic reconstruction of the Honmaru Palace, the castle’s residential and administrative quarters.
Elsewhere around the castle grounds are some original keeps and stone walls plus a garden with teahouses. Admission is ¥500 (free for kids). Tickets should be bought at the venue.
Nagoya Castle is located in central Nagoya, a 20-minute bus ride from Nagoya Station. For more details, check out our Nagoya Castle guide.
Look familiar? Nagoya Castle has appeared (and been destroyed) in several Godzilla movies.
