  • 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.
