This is a massive place in large grounds. The castle itself is in excellent repair and you can have beautiful views from the top. Entrance fee is reasonable at 500 yen. Lots of displays inside - including a Star Wars attraction! Well worth going to see.

Nagoya Castle has one of the better exhibitions inside - very detailed and informative, and the 3D models throughout are great! The park lands surrounding the castle are quite beautiful (we were there at the tail end of the cherry blossom season).

The castle and park surrounding it is lovely. It is an easy walk from the Nagoya JR Station, about 20 minutes. The park surrounding the castle is spacious with lovely cherry trees. The Castle is very impressive.

A must see in Nagoya especially during Sakura season. There is work going on but it doesn't detract from the beauty of the castle, you can also go inside and walk up each level or take the elevator. I went expecting to spend an hour here but left nearly 3 hours later

If you are into castles this is a must see to add to your bucket list of castles in Japan. We travelled there on March 31, 2017 and the cherry blossoms were about to burst. Beautiful surrounding gardens decorate the grounds. The castle boasts several floors of exhibits depicting its history and how it was built and its battles. No... More

Interesting castle. A lot to read on. However, do take note of the timing of the closing and opening. The security is very strict on closing the gate.
