#617: Nagoya Castle (category: castle)
Nagoya Castle was built early in the 17th century by Ieyasu Tokugawa, the first shogun of the Tokugawa Shogunate government. The castle has been widely known for its splendid, golden "Shachihoko".
It is one of the symbols of Nagoya (refer to #058) and often regarded as one of three greatest castles in Japan, along with the two out of three castles that include Himeji Castle (refer to #608), Osaka Castle (refer to #616), and Kumamoto Castle.
