Nagoya Castle
Shiyakusho Stn, Meijo line
5 min. from Shiyakusho subway station.
Originally built in 1612 by the legendary Tokugawa Ieyasu, Nagoya Castle's main tower was destroyed by bombs during World War II. The current building is a concrete replica dating from 1959, but other structures such as the three donjons gate, the stone fortress, the tea house and the garden are original. Now used as a museum, the castle contains various paintings and artifacts from the Edo period. The twin 88 kg gold 'shachi' [killer whales] adorning the roof have become the symbol of the city. Currently, a citizen's group is raising money to rebuild the 'goten', the prefectural lord's residence. When completed, it will house more than 1,000 screens representative of the Edo period. Meijo Park, which surrounds the castle, is famous for its over 1,600 cherry trees. The Nagoya Noh Theater opened in April 1997 and is located in the front court of Nagoya Castle. This 630-seat traditional-style theater hosts regular performances of the ancient Noh form of Japanese theater.

Of those that did survive, most of them ended up here. The expansive grounds of Meiji Mura are home to over 60 late-19th and early-20th century buildings, including sections of Frank Lloyd Wright's famous Imperial Hotel, Tokyo.
