The 6 bushos are; Nobunaga Oda, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, Ieyasu Tokugawa, Toshiie Maeda, Kiyomasa Kato, and Keiji Maeda. Nagoya Omotenashi Bushotai members talk and act as the “real” historical figures. They are featured in various TV shows. They also entertain visitors at the Nagoya Castle.

Originally built in 1610 but completely destroyed by B-29 bombings in May 1945. It was rebuilt in 1960. The outside is interesting to see, however the inside is not what you would expect. There is nothing old or castle looking about the inside. You are inside a 1960’s museum. There is a panoramic view of the city from the top floor. I would not suggest going out of your way to see the castle but if you are in Nagoya, stop by and see at least the outside. It is located right in the city. 360 view from top floor. Cost 500 yen to see the inside.

Far superior to similar Osaka castle.

Should be noted, like Osaka Castle it is not really a castle but a recreation that is a museum on the inside. However the exhibits in this museum are pretty entertaining. Didn't disappoint.

It's a must go place in Nagoya. The castle is beautiful. A small gallery is located inside the castle and show you the history of it.

On initially viewing Nagoya Castle I was a little surprised to hear that this was one of the top three castles in Japan especially as it ony appears to be about half the size of Osaka. The castle was largely destroyed at the end of the war and much of it is now in the process of being restored. The difference with this castle is the layout which encompasses a much larger area with a large main stone castle attached by a left wing and four corner stone buildings. But the difference is the palace that is currently under restoration, enclosed in a large structure. You get a chance to walk around and view the amount of workmanship that is going on to restore the other parts of the castle which is worth a visit on its own just to see the craftmanship that is taking place.
The castle is well sign posted from the Underground Station "City Hall" and an english pamphlet is available at the entrance. The main castle has adequate english explanations, the only downside is that the detailed explanations around the palace renovations are all in Japanese and unless you read Japanese or have a translator it rather detracts from the impressive work that is being undertaken.

Nice garden, nice (but rebuild) castle. The building exhibition was also very interesting. Well worth the admittance
