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, the shopping district, Kinshachi Yokocho, has several restaurants that serve Nagoya's most famous dishes and original desserts. A wide-ranging cast of characters such as The Nagoya Hospitality Warriors, Tokugawa Ieyasu, and Hattori Hanzo's Ninja Squad let visitors see samurai and ninja in action.
