A few years ago I had the chance to see this and was stunned by the beauty of the craftsmanship that went into this restoration. It really gives Nagoya castle a run for it's money. The elaborate paintings and details in every little thing were...More

Located inside Nagoya Castle. Free enter. So beautiful the decoration and the wall paint. Must come if you are at Nagoya. Visited on Dec 2017.

Wonderful restoration of a part of the Nagota castle including the reception halls, but since it is quite new, only seven or eight years old, for me it was a little difficult to imagine how it was like in the old days.

这个馆修了好几年终于在前几个月完工了。每幅画都很精美微微闪耀光泽,木质的地板尤其舒服,工工整整每个细节都完美。 This palace is finally completed recently after several years' construction. All the paintings are exquisite with subtle shine. We loved walking on the wood flooring, which is definitely a detail-oriented design and construction.

These premises were destroyed in the war but faithfully recreated using abundant paintings and renderings of the place. Where there were no details, they would leave the space or wall blank. The attention to detail is absolutely amazing!

Although this building is not the original (destroyed during WWII), we appreciated the craftsmanship in recreating the original structure and interiors. Loved the smell of wood and the vibrancy of the painting colors. Note: covered by the entrance fee to the Nagoya castle

It's wonderful to see where the daimyo lived. In Japan the donjon of the castle is often all that survives or all that has been reconstructed, and it served as a fortress and armory. The reconstruction is based on the plans, materials, and paintings from...More

I did a review of Nagoya Castle and included this palace because it is within the Nagoya Castle grounds. In fact, this is the best part of the Castle grounds. The building has been very nicely restored and it is lovely to see the rooms...More

If you visit the castle please ensure you enter the Hommarugoten. The building is stunning and considered a replica of the original. No photos allowed. During mid 2018 the remaining rooms are expected to be completed. You are transformed back in time upon entry. If...More
