Wonderful restoration of a part of the Nagota castle including the reception halls, but since it is quite new, only seven or eight years old, for me it was a little difficult to imagine how it was like in the old days.
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
