Fodor's Review

The main keep of this Nagoya landmark, a 1950s ferro-concrete reconstruction of the 1612 original, was closed in May 2018 and will be pulled down and replaced by a fully wooden reconstruction by 2022. Although there's no castle to see right now, inside the east gate a traditional teahouse built of hinoki (Japanese cypress) stands in the otherwise unspectacular Ninomaru Tei-en 二の丸庭園 (Ninomaru Gardens), where you can break for green tea for ¥500. Also on the grounds is the site of the once Honmaru Palace, which is set to reopen in summer 2018 after its own several-year rebuild. Nagoya-jo's east gate is one block north of the Shiyakusho市役所 (City Hall) subway station.
