Nagoya-jo is the castle which was in Nagoya-shi, Aichi.
Mr. Imagawa built in 1521-28, but it was occupied by Mr. Oda and was an after deserted castle in 1935. Since Tokugawa Ieyasu built a castle in 1609, it was a castle resided of Owari Tokugawa family. A large donjon (about 48 m) in five beds where I receive a gold killer whale and a small donjon (about 24 m) were reconstructed in 1959. A large donjon exhibits pictures on partitions of an important cultural asset and history material.
It’s selected in Japan 100 Meijo, and it’s designated as a national special ruin.

A donjon is made of 5 story. An elevator is also installed.
About 10 kinds of 1000 cherry tree blooms focusing on a Someiyoshino cherry tree and a weeping cherry tree. The collaboration with the gold imaginary sea animal which is a symbol in Nagoya-jo is also wonderful.
