  • 名古屋城是推介遊客必到地方,御殿總共分正苑及別苑,另外再有登上的名古屋城,金碧輝煌展現名古屋昔日的催燦繁華,對了解歷史、觀光、藝術都有幫助,3月底正值櫻花期,還有很多美不勝收的櫻花盛放,建議遊客依入館指示,入苑地方要脫鞋子,部份壁畫不能拍照,這樣人人保育做個愛惜地方的好遊客,人家才會歡迎你來。 
  • To understand Nagoya history, visit the Nagoya Castle. The compound is big & a lot to see. So allocate at least 2 hour for a more leisurely visit to take in the sights & exhibits. 
  • Very nice renovated. For almost two years, there is a new building with the usual shop of but also a changing exhibition before the Castle. On holidays, the plant is very busy, otherwise this is a wonderful trip.

  • We really enjoyed our visit to the castle. They are doing a lot to make it a varied experience - with a new building replicating one previously destroyed - and many displays inside the castle as you climb the stairs to the top as well. The top floor gift shop is kitschy but this is Japan after all. The view from the top is beautiful. There are snack bars on the grounds.
  • Visited here during the cherry blossom season, so it was packed with people - on the grounds and also inside. There were some stands offering snacks and beer and you could sit under the Sakuras. The castle itself was repaired after the events of WW2, so inside is everything in concrete. There is a museum where you can try and touch a few things and see, how people loved few hundred years ago. The view from up there is splendid. I just don't recommend to visit during a festival or holidays - otherwise it'll be packed with people and you'll often have wait in a line
  • Newly-recreated building inside the complex which shows the courtrooms and personal spaces of shoguns and their family. Nice place to learn about the history, art, and architecture of the samurai era. Meet a local volunteer guide at the entrance of the Nagoya Castle so you can further enjoy and appreciate the complex.
  • Rebuilt castle, with elevator, morden water pipe and morden windows, the only reason to visit is because it is a city landmark. One more thing, don't get there their by subway train, you will get your feet broken when back to hotel. There is a bus to the front door from sakae station
  • Lots of sight seeing but most of it has been rebuilt and looks modern. The inside of the castle is a museum displaying different elements of that era. Still nice to see. Also, lots of construction so many parts of it was closed.
