Very similar to Osaka Castle in look and feel however there are some distinct differences. First is the 2 meter gold dolphin statute that is placed on the roof of the castle. Considering that this is not gold plated but actual gold, pretty amazing. There is a restoration project still in progress on the whole site so seeing the process... More

This is definitely not the best castle in japan I've been to (that goes to himeji castle), but it's still worth a look if you are in nagoya. The architecture from the outside is amazing, and i went during cherry blossom period and its so beautiful. The line was too long to go inside, so i recommend going there real... More

Even though I live here it was my first time actually going for a visit inside and it was really cool. My freind and I caught the free English tour at 1pm from the east gate. That was the only time that English tours where starting from what I could see. (It also happened to be a Holliday.) Our tour... More

The castle has a nice garden around to hangout and have a good time with friends and family. The inside is typically a small museum with well-organized and historical relics and facts.

A very nice typical Japanese castle that is now sort of a museum. It is worth a visit, even if you've been to other Japanese castles

You definitely should go if in Nagoya its like 5 dollars US for the whole tour so definitely worth it. The observation floor is the best part you can see all of Nagoya. That being said it does not have the ancient feel it should have but with the war many original things were destroyed. Still has a really cool... More

Easy to go. Take subway to Nagoya Castle. Get off at the Shiyakusho (City Hall) Meijo line. Few minute walk you will reach the entrance and fee is 500 yen. You can take grand photos not only the outlook but also palace inside.

The castle is well maintained and has plenty of English pamphlets and displays for tourists. The Ninomaru Teahouse is a must go as they serve traditional matcha and dessert at an affordable price.
