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.

While the original palace was destroyed during WWII, the reconstruction of this lovely palace next to Nagoya castle is absolutely stunning with vivid colors and great looking animals. You must take off your shoes for the 15-30 minutes tour through the palace. Don't miss it!
