Nagoya Castle is one of the most important castles in Japan during the Edo period. It was built to help Tokugawa Ieyasu obtain control of the Tokaido route (the route connecting Kyoto to Tokyo). In 1945, most of the buildings in the castle complex was destroyed by the air raids, only a few items were left, which are now important cultural assets of Japan.
Nagoya Castle is deeply associated with shachihoko (a folklore animal with the head of a tiger and body of a carp). It is believed that shachihoko can help to cause rainfall, thus protecting the castle in the event of fire.
Nagoya Castle is easily reachable,only a 16-minute from Nagoya station.
