Like all other Japanese castes, Nagoya Castle is truly a sight to behold! Rising majestically above the surrounding area, this castle is a perfect example of traditional Japanese architecture.

Always fascinated by the sparse grandeur of Japanese palaces. The castle gardens were spread out and not very ornamental but good for a walk

Our first stop in Japan was Nagoya. Our first place in Nagoya was Nagoya Castle. Any picture doesn't do justice unless you take glimpse of the castle in real. I still remember the first view of the castle. It has been etched in my memory....More

現在、工事中なので本来の形を見ることができませんが、名古屋の有名観光地なので行く価値はあるかと思います。コンクリート造りだったのは印象的です。名古屋城が工事する前に訪れました。今後は、木造建築にするみたいです。 I visited Nagoya castle before construction. I am currently under construction, so I can not see the original shape, but I think that it is worth going because it is a famous tourist destination in Nagoya. It was impressive that it was concrete construction....More

Hi, Good Day. Can i ride the Nagoya subway to Kuwana subway using Shoryudo Nagoya Subway and Bus 1 day pass?. My apartment is in Kuwana area. Please advise.

No. SHORYUDO Nagoya Subway & Bus 1-Day Pass is only for usage in Nagoya City with subway lines and Buses. Kuwana is far out of the area.

activities for 9 & 11 year olds? (1 Reply)
What activities can you recommend for children 9 & 11 years old? We will be staying in Nagoya for about a week and will have JR passes so we can do day trips. We also plan to visit Kyoto & Nara. Toy or craft museums? Hands on places? Other? So far, we're going to visit the Nagoya aquarium, Nagoya Castle & Toyota factory.
