Of course, when visiting Nagoya, one must see the Castle. I have never visited any of Japan's castles before, so I expected just a building, and was surprised to find an entire area around it. The entrance fee of 500 yen seems more than fair...More

Set in stunning surroundings and with fantastic architecture, you could almost spend the whole day here. It has a sort of museum inside and displays of the many wildlife species, especially huge beautiful moths, butterflies, beetles etc. Loved it here

This was a huge castle! Although there were lots of building stuff around it was still a fun and informative experience! Get the Matcha Ice Cream if you can!

The castle area is spaceful and peaceful, there's also the volunteering guides at free of charge in English, Chinese, and Japanese. Good for a couple of hour visit with many bus stops and subways to reach.
