A National Treasure, Inuyama Castle (国宝 犬山城)

4.5

Historical Monument

Inuyama Castle which was founded by Oda Nobuyasu, Oda Nobunaga’s uncle in 1537 during the Muromachi period. It is the oldest wooden donjon in existence in Japan and is one of “the 12 Castles with Existing Castle Towers”. The top floor of the watchtower style donjon overlooks Kiso River, Gifu Castle and Nagoya town, and it must surely be a superb view. I guess you will be able to get a sense of what it was like to be a feudal lord. The castle was designated as a National Treasure in 1952 based on the Cultural Property Protection Act.

          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
