This is a beautiful castle my partner and I have enjoyed walking around. We stayed at the Westin Hotel with a view directly facing it. Nagoya is a nice city and good transit on a visit to Ise Shrine.

Bought Sightseeing RouteBus Me~guru tickets for the family. We dropped off at Nagoya castle. The surroundings were beautiful with the trees in scenic autumn colors. We took a lift to the top level. After getting out of the lift at level 5 we walked a few flights of stairs to the observation top. Here you will get a 360 degrees... More

We visited on Sunday and it was crowded with lots of locals. The castle is easily accessible by the subway Meijo line, get off at Shiyakusho (city hall) station and enter Nagoya castle through the East gate or the hop-on hop-off city tour bus. We took the city tour bus from JR Nagoya station and got off at the Nagoya... More

Visited the castle and wasn't expecting much after having visited Himeji castle ( very disappointing) and found it a lot more visitor friendly, had interesting exhibits and catered for elderly and disabled. Would reccomend this castle to visit but wouldn't recommend Himeji.

To understand Nagoya history, visit the Nagoya Castle. The compound is big & a lot to see. So allocate at least 2 hour for a more leisurely visit to take in the sights & exhibits.

Excellent place to visit. The woodwork and preservation and design is beautiful. Very informative , feels like historical Japan. The grounds are great and many outdoor garden areas as well. I highly recommend visiting..

The main building is on several levels so lots of stairs to climb (I think there's a lift as well). Lots of artefacts including weapons and armour. The castle can be reached by train. Probably need half a day to walk round.

we visit the castle ready to be bored with history,...not! it was a wonderful experience. The children enjoy the diorama, and since it is up lifted on the hill, we could see panoramic view of Nagoya. The real castle was under construction, but they make an annex with real old Lord's and Lady's room.,. all gilded with gold wallpaper that... More

Visited here during the cherry blossom season, so it was packed with people - on the grounds and also inside. There were some stands offering snacks and beer and you could sit under the Sakuras. The castle itself was repaired after the events of WW2, so inside is everything in concrete. There is a museum where you can try and... More
