Another castle that is close to my home is Inuyama Castle. It is fairly accessible from Nagoya Station for only around ¥700. Inuyama Castle, as the name suggests, is located in Inuyama, Aichi. What makes Inuyama Castle special is that, it is still the original castle built during 1440. It has not ever been reconstructed. Entrance fee for the castle is only ¥550.

There are two shrines under the Inuyama Castle, one is the Sanko Inari Shrine, and the other is the Seiko Shrine. From these two shrines, it is the gate of Inuyama Castle.
Inari Shrine has a long row of red bird houses, much more beautiful than the needle net shrine next door. Secretly telling you, Sanguang Inari Shrine has a money laundering shrine in front of the Tori, and you can wash your own coins with spring water. It is said that the money washed in the shrine spring water will double the money. Many Japanese people go to the special money laundering shrine to launder money for a good sign. It is quite superstitious to see Japanese people like this.
The castle tower in Inuyama Castle is one of the twelve ancient celestial guards in Japan, and the style is the oldest. It is also known as "the four national treasures of Japan" with Kushiro Castle, Matsumoto Castle and Hikone Castle. Although not as gorgeous as some of the castles of later generations, there is no such excitement as the Nagoya Castle in Osaka, but the quaint stone sarcophagi, the pillars and the steep steps all give a heavy sense of history. Take off your shoes at the door, the corridor inside is narrow and narrow, only to the platform of each floor, it is wide. Climb to the penultimate floor with photos and maps of 47 famous cities in Japan. On the Internet, it is the top floor. There is a wooden floor on the outside of the top floor that allows you to go out and enjoy the scenery. But, however. . . The fence is super short and there is no protection. The wind is a little bigger. It is so scary to blow people. Slowly stick to the wall and relax, only to see the vast scenery outside. Kisokawa, Dasan, and the high-rise modern buildings of Nagoya in the distance are vividly in sight.
Inuyama Castle is located in Aichi Prefecture, and it is more than 40 minutes away from the downtown area of Nagoya, so it is also a must-see for many sightseeing in central Japan.
Its really cheap to experience a price in a kimono in Inuyama, only half of Kyoto. Next to our experience is the Inuyama Museum, which is worth a visit.
Walk in the old city, I found that many of the shops are hanging such long radishes at the door. It turned out to be unique to Inuyama and is the raw material of the radish cooked in Oden.
Inuyama Castle is a castle, known as the national treasure of Japan. Under the Inuyama Castle is a shrine. We just climbed up and down in a kimono, which is very eye-catching. In fact, most of the girls wearing Japanese kimonos are Chinese girls.
The goalkeeper is the amount of two foxes, which has the meaning of recruiting money, so this shrine is very popular with Japanese businessmen. Before entering the shrine, wash your right hand first, then wash your left hand, then rinse the water on your hand and wash the handle of the tweezers with the rest of the water. In order to respect local customs, you can first see how others do it, and it is easy to imitate it.
