Nagoyajo Castle (also called Meijo in Japanese) is one of the major castles in Japan. The golden fish statues on the roof of the keep were reconstructed in 1959. Inside the keep, important cultural properties such as folding screens and historical documents are on display, allowing visitors to learn about Nagoya’s history in an enjoyable manner. People clad in warrior’s armor greet visitors at the gate everyday. In fact, they became so popular in Japan, that they started a boom in Japan, with many locations imitating Nagoya’s example. The final repairs of the castle finished in June 2018 and every part of the castle is now open to the public.
