Also known as Nagoyajo, the 7 stories of Nagoya Castle rise from the center of Nagoya City, a fine reconstruction of the 17th-century original. Nagoya Castle was initially built in the Edo Period by a branch of the powerful Tokugawa Clan, but was destroyed in the bombings of 1945. Today, Nagoya Castle serves as a traditional icon in a city that’s at the forefront of Japan’s progressive business industry and new technologies. Two moats and major walls remain supporting a number of reconstructed buildings, with an ongoing reconstruction process. Ancient feudal lords called Honmaru Palace their home, glistening with golden interiors of gold-leaf fusuma decorating the walls. Nagoya Castle is the city’s number one cherry blossom viewing spot, with over 100 cherry trees in and around the grounds as well as other unusual Japanese flowers including quince, witch hazel, plum, and crape myrtle. Ninomaru Gardens in the castle grounds also offer scenic views which change throughout the year. Take a break from learning about Nagoya’s rich history and rest at the tea house with traditional refreshments.
