I live in Nagoya, and I always go back to Nagoya Castle whenever I feel like to. Spring is the best time to go to Nagoya Castle. There are a lot of Cherry Blossoms around the area. The castle and the Cherry Blossom absolutely look mesmerizing in the pictures. Most importantly, Food Stalls inside sell a Cherry Blossom ice cream for ¥300. Winter in Nagoya Castle is not that scenic, though, the beauty of the castle will always be high level. Been there again last December 2019. During that time, the ice cream flavors for sale inside the castle were Berries and Green Tea. Entrance fee is still ¥500, and an additional ¥500 if you go inside the main castle tower. Unfortunately, the main castle tower is closed currently because it was damaged from the recent earthquake.
Besides as a historical monument, it’s and excellent place to visit. Before going there, I suggest you to download the application for Nagoya Castle, and look through it to enrich your experience inside, especially in the Honmaru palace, where you cane see short interactive historical movies.
400 years ago in the ancient city, it is said that Tokugawa Jiakang likes cherry blossoms very much, so cherry blossoms are popular all over Japan. So with the beautiful scenery now, he felt that cherry blossoms were like the spirit of Bushido at that time. Life was short, and blossom would blossom brilliantly. So-called life was short, life would be brilliant, and soldiers would be used for a long time.
Nagoya City, known as "Japan's three famous cities" together with Osaka City and Kumamoto City, is no longer what it used to be, but the size of the castle can still be seen. Take the famous city line to the No. 7 entrance of the Municipal Service Center is outside Nagoya. Seeing a large area of cherry blossoms from outside the city, I am in a good mood. Walking inside is the gate. The ticket is 500 yen. Opening at 9 a.m. If you are the cherry blossom season, it is most appropriate to come in the morning. There are a lot of people at noon, or more than 4 p.m. to avoid the peak crowd. Nagoya City Tianshouge is a place where the Tokugawa family has lived for generations. It is a five-storey eaves building. The roof ridges are decorated with golden head fish bodies of one male and one female. The interior of Tianshou Pavilion has been renovated, the wooden structure has been unreserved, and elevators have been added.
So the popular Nagoya City ticket price is only 500 yen, the cost-effective ratio is very high, it is worth a good trip, it is worth mentioning that when building Nagoya City, many craftsmen were requisitioned also have family identity, many people are engraved on the stone of the city with their own family logo, are very simple signs, triangles, squares, circles and so on, graphics. There are some other lines to form their own family logos. If you are interested before going to the city, you can observe them all the way, and you can see a lot of marked stones. Buy tickets and enter the park. At the entrance, there are the portraits of the second generation of Vassals and their wives in Nagoya City. They are very vivid. It takes 5 or 6 minutes to walk to Nagoya City. It's November. Along the way, you can see many beautiful maple leaves. Many photographers also enjoy taking pictures of various maple leaves. After landing, there is a sign of "bypass" and the order of viewing according to the instructions will not be disorderly. On the top floor, you can see the high-rise buildings in Nagoya. Nearby, there are all kinds of trees around Nagoya. They are red, dark green, light green, yellow and colorful.
Architecture itself does not have much uniqueness. Many Chinese buildings have come to be more magnificent. But they are more emotional about the maintenance and operation of scenic spots. An ordinary castle was destroyed after World War II and gradually improved. Every floor of Tianshouge Pavilion explained the history and Humanities of the building. The roof overlooks the city of Nagoya. Beside Tianshou Pavilion, the Royal Palace of Benwan is being rebuilt. The palace is restored with wood. The paintings on the walls are vivid. There are many cherry trees and maple trees in the park. The scenery is beautiful in spring and autumn. Relative to the fare, it is a worthwhile scenic spot. Traffic is also more convenient. Take the subway to the station in front of the Municipal Service station, and walk for about 3 minutes.
Nagoya City should belong to the most familiar urban scenic spots in Nagoya City. Take the famous subway line and get off at the Municipal Service station. You can walk for a few minutes to reach the Dongmen entrance. There are two kinds of tickets, only 500 yen for Nagoya City, and 640 yuan for Nagoya + Tokugawa Garden package tickets, but you need to take a shuttle bus to Tokugawa Garden, so you should take your own time to buy tickets. Nagoya has a very quiet and elegant environment. I don't know if the historic sites are well preserved. After entering, there is really a sense of desolation in the historical years. On the same day, we visited the Royal Palace of Benwan and Tianshou Pavilion. The former was rebuilt in 2009 because of Zhurong experience. Although the building is beautiful, it lacks the taste of the years. The interior is worth seeing. The wall decoration is exquisite and beautiful. Tianshouge, on the other hand, shows the history of the Edo era, imitated Street buildings and cultural relics, etc. Friends who are interested in visiting suggested that they should do some homework on the history of the Edo era and Shinzo Oda, Hideki Toyoshi and Kakang Tokugawa, so as not to feel confused when visiting.
Nagoya City, together with Osaka City and Kumamoto City, is known as Japan's three famous cities! Before I went to Osaka City, I couldn't see the beauty in the 38 degree sun. All I saw was the hot wave! This time, the clouds and breezes are light 27 degrees, and some are amazing! The moat, the ancient city wall, has a very historical atmosphere! Green, delicate, quiet and elegant! Wooden structure, windows are paper, so in addition to taking off shoes, if carrying a backpack, you need to carry the bag in front of your chest! Nagoya City in cherry blossom season should be beautiful and beautiful!
