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.

Wish they would compare descriptions of happenings to other events worldwide (Timeline) so that one can fit it better. Also the english could be a bit better and ebtertaining.

The castle is a typical Japanese style construction with the dolphin/fish logo being the most common symbol of Nagoya. The castle has a lot of artifacts dating from the 14th century. One of the castle structures was under renovation and they hope to complete it sometime this year. The 3D show of the history of the castle is worth a view, available in English.

Nagoya Castle is the first one I have ever seen. I was very impressed with the castle despite much construction being done at the time of visit. When construction is complete it will be very impressive.
They also have very good performers reenacting a battle that took place there.
They did not have an English tour guide at the time I went but a lady in the crowd was able to translate most of what was said. The golden "dolphins" on the roof are not dolphins though as we were told. They are actually "Killer Whales". This was a great day trip experience.

Even if your "castled out", this is still intersting and will be more so when the reconstruction of the Hommaru palace is finished.
Many of the original door and screen paintings that were in the Hommaru survived WW2 as they had been put into safe storage during the war. Some of these are now on display on the first floor of the castle.
There are a lot of exhibits throughout the castle. One, on the third floor, recreates an Edo Period street in Nagoya with sound and light effects for night and day. Another, on the fifth floor, is an exhibit of workmen pulling a large stone destined for the castle wall. This one is interactive in that it has a rope that allows one to simulate pulling the stone.
Photography is not permitted on the first and second floors. the upper floors are ok.
For sightseeing in Nagoya I suggest buying a 500 yen Meguru Bus pass. Meguru Bus is the sightseeing hop on - hop off bus.
