Well worth a look at the castle if you are in Nagoya and have time to spare. The exhibits in the main keep are informative and give you an insight into life in Nagoya during feudal times.

Definitely worth a stop during a sightseeing day. Easy to walk to and interesting. Nice interpretations in English so you know what you're seeing. And the grounds are very nice.

The most beautiful castle that I visited in my life. The gardens are amazing. That's easy to arrive because there's a subway station near the entrance. The interior was a museum, because the original castle was destroyed by a air raid in WWII.

Beautiful fully bloomed sakura cover around the castle when we were there. They open till late night during cherry blossom season and got lanterns displayed on cherry blossom trees. The castle is within walking distance from Nagoya centre, very convenient.

I wasn't expecting this castle to be so big nor to have the access inside. Very impressed by the castle and artefacts inside, not so impressed with the construction of what looks like big tin sheds within the grounds.

I could be wrong, but I think you have to take a train from the airport to Nagoya Station, and then take the subway to the castle. There was a subway stop near the castle.
