Nagoya's #1 Tourist Destination

On the roof of Nagoya Castle rests a symbol of Nagoya—a pair of golden grampuses. Built by the shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu, Nagoya Castle is the first destination for most visitors to Nagoya. Next to the castle, a shopping district called "Kinshachi Yokocho" has several restaurants that serve Nagoya's most famous dishes and original desserts. A wide-ranging cast of characters that includes The Nagoya Hospitality Warriors, Tokugawa Ieyasu and Hattori Hanzo's Ninja Squad give visitors a chance to see samurai and ninjas in action.
