What a magnificent castle! Only ¥500 entry and there is so much to see. The immaculately kept Hommarugoten, where guests would be greeted on arrival, is fascinating and the grounds are also very well kept.

I went to Nagoya Castle with students of Texas University and Meijo University. I had a great time with them. Especially, I was interested in “Honmarugoten”. It was so beautiful. I hope we can meet again!

This was the second time for me and the first for my spouse. We enjoyed the visit but it is much better when one can enter the castle.

The main tower is under renovation and is closed unfortunately. However the Hommaru palace was open and it was quite impressive. The castle grounds were huge and quite a nice walk it makes.
