这个馆修了好几年终于在前几个月完工了。每幅画都很精美微微闪耀光泽,木质的地板尤其舒服,工工整整每个细节都完美。 This palace is finally completed recently after several years' construction. All the paintings are exquisite with subtle shine. We loved walking on the wood flooring, which is definitely a detail-oriented design and construction.

These premises were destroyed in the war but faithfully recreated using abundant paintings and renderings of the place. Where there were no details, they would leave the space or wall blank. The attention to detail is absolutely amazing!

Although this building is not the original (destroyed during WWII), we appreciated the craftsmanship in recreating the original structure and interiors. Loved the smell of wood and the vibrancy of the painting colors. Note: covered by the entrance fee to the Nagoya castle

It's wonderful to see where the daimyo lived. In Japan the donjon of the castle is often all that survives or all that has been reconstructed, and it served as a fortress and armory. The reconstruction is based on the plans, materials, and paintings from...More

I did a review of Nagoya Castle and included this palace because it is within the Nagoya Castle grounds. In fact, this is the best part of the Castle grounds. The building has been very nicely restored and it is lovely to see the rooms...More

If you visit the castle please ensure you enter the Hommarugoten. The building is stunning and considered a replica of the original. No photos allowed. During mid 2018 the remaining rooms are expected to be completed. You are transformed back in time upon entry. If...More

Loved how the people of Nagoya went through the painstaking effort to reconstruct this palace. The painted screens are just incredible and amazing. I believe some are original? Part of the experience of Nagoya Castle.

Magnificent wooden structure, exquisite details, paintings on walls and sliding doors, quite enjoyable. Heavily tended by the palace officer since a lot of the display are fragile. Very old painting still beautiful to see, and we especially liked the golden tone of the paintings, I...More

When you enter they ask you to take off you're shoes, and take you for a walk about 15 minutes, showing you only arts of animals that people used to draw in rooms during the Edo period in Nagoya castle.
