About Nagoya

Nagoya is the capital of Aichi Prefecture and Japan's third-biggest metropolitan area. Besides contemporary matters, the Nagoya area is famous as a historical place. Nagoya is home to Japan's second most revered shrine, the Great Shrine of Atsuta established about 1,900 years ago. Nagoya area was also a battlefield with three famous warlords in the 16th century, Oda Nobunaga, Toyotomi Hideyoshi, and Tokugawa Ieyasu. Nagoya castle, topped with Nagoya's iconic two-meter tall glittering gold tiger-fish roof ornaments, is a must for first-time visitors because it is considered to be one of the top three castles. As a part of its 400th anniversary, Honmaru Goten Palace of the Nagoya Castle, which served as the official residence and administrative offices, was authentically restored and is now open to the public since 2018. You can see the gorgeous palace and its interior, which was recognized as a masterpiece of Edo period (1603-1867).
