Nagoya Castle Donjon
Mo to Su from 09:00 AM to 04:30 PMMomoyama Period specialists will find the Kano School paintings and wooden doors that belonged to the Honmaru Palace interesting. Fortunately these beautiful works of art were not destroyed during the Pacific War air bombings. The motifs include genre scenes, landscapes and the ubiquitous flowers, birds and trees, the bulk of which are in black and white. Other pieces representing castle paraphernalia are armor, maps, clothing and even roof tiles. The golden dolphins, which used to adorn the castle roof as a symbol of the feudal lord's authority, are perhaps the best known treasures of Nagoya Castle.
