After touring the Nagoya Castle site, which is fairly large with a park that has some interesting historic ruins, head back to Shiyakusho station and take the purple subway line (Meijo Line) all the way down to Jingu Nishi station. It’s about an 8-10 minute walk to the park from here. Now beware, like most Japanese gardens, this one too is fairly large (about 3.5 hecatares). You entire walk through this park will always have water at your side, since it has been designed (with the help of modern technology) to create and ebb and flow effect. There is a tea-house smack in the middle of the park which has been built in a traditional tea ceremony cottage architectural style (Sukiya). The form is meant to represent a swan making its way down to the water. Personally, I didn’t see it (and I’m an architect!) – but nonetheless, it is a very serene tea house overlooking the water. You’ll walk on some nice bridges, and see some artificial falls, and of course tons of koi fish squirm around in the water.
