Recommendation by Lemi
The Nagoya Castle, built in 1615, served as the residence of the Owari lineage. It is the most senior of the three noble houses of the Tokugawa clan, a powerful daimyō (Japanese feudal lords) family who ruled the nation until the early Meiji period. Most of the castle’s surrounding structures, including its main keep, were destroyed by the U.S. air raids during the second World War. The castle is yet to be restored to its former glory; but, come in the spring to see the area transform into a popular hanami (cherry blossom viewing) spot!
