Exploring Nagoya: Nagoya Castle

Nagoya is the fourth largest city in Japan and has its own castle. Like most castles, Nagoya Castle (名古屋城) is only a replica as the original has been destroyed and rebuilt several times throughout history. But like the other replicas, it is an impressive and interesting castle to explore. The castle is situated in the middle of a picturesque park, and tourists can go inside the castle, which like most, was converted into a museum. It was one of the nicer castles I saw during my travels.
