Nagoya Castle Reviews
오사카에 오사카성이 있다면, 나고야에는 나고야성이 있습니다. 오사카성과 내용도 비슷한것으로 알고 있습니다. 다만, 규모가 조금 더 작았던 것으로 기억납니다. 나고야에 방문한다면, 갈만한곳이..나고야성 정도이지 않을까 생각해요 more »If Osaka has Osaka Castle, Nagoya is located.

More than just a castle, also a Palace and a garden. You could easily spend a couple of hours here. Accessible on the Me~guru sightseeing bus which starts at Nagoya train station and includes other major attractions on the same loop. Get the all day ticket so you can hop on and hop off at each attraction.
A decent evening can be spent here here. At least for couple for hours. The main building is closed for renovations but never the less the outside of the castle is worth taking a pics with. Entrance is a mere 500yen, the place is huge, really huge, and excellently kept and maintained. Shows and performances are often going on, shade and vending machines are easy to find. The garden and tea house are lovely, the castle itself is just beautiful. Great site! Plan for one half of day for this place. They have kept the rooms and dresses wore by the earlier king in a decent way.
