Went there during winter time, so I guess I missed the widely -anticipated spring and autumn scenery, during which the gardens in the compound are most beautiful. But still, the castle is a pleasant trip to have during winter time. The entrance fee is 500 yen for adult. Before entering the main compound, we first visited the surrounding gardens. As... More

The construction is undoubtedly amazing and well taken care of. extensive restorations are ongoing. Not too many exhibits are on view, but stepping inside the rooms is enough to get a feeling of what life must have been. BUT, on the back of my head lingering the knowledge that the castle has been (superbly) rebuilt from scratches and everything is... More

Typical Japan's castle. Regret one thing. Made of reinforced concrete. Now trying to rebuild with wood structure.

We enjoyed our visit here. Love the autumn foliage surrounding the castle at that time. Take the stairs to the top floor ala kung fu panda and you'll have a breathtaking view of the city. Nice place to relax and watch out for some ninjas outside for a photo op.

Nagoya castle has been reconstructed in 1959 after being destroyed by fire during WW2. The external area is beautiful and the annex palace is well restored. The interior of the main tower though is a modern construction from the 1950's. Anyway, it is worth visiting, specially the fine restoration of the palace.

Easily accessible via Me-guru Sightseeing Route Bus. The castle's sorroundings look so scenic in autumn, good for photo opportunity. The top of the castle is an observatory where you can have a 360 view of Nagoya City.

The day pass you can get from the bus driver. Its unlimited for a day. You have to be properly dressed... More
