National Treasure Inuyama Castle

Admire the view from the oldest wooden castle tower in Japan

more

Inuyama Castle is one of five castles to have been designated as National Treasures, and has the oldest wooden castle tower remaining in Japan today. From the highest floor of the castle tower, you get a magnificent view of the entire castle town and the Kiso River running beside the castle. You’ll definitely want to capture it on camera. On sunny days, you can even see the skyscrapers around Nagoya Station. The castle interior also retains much of the atmosphere of the age when the castle was built, and you can still see steep staircases and thick beams supporting the castle tower.

Inuyama Inouetei

How about a commemorative photo with a reeeally long radish?
There is a wealth of local produce on the menu

more

The shop’s retro style is just so quaint! How about a commemorative photo with a reeeally long radish in front of the shop?
The popular “shoyu-okoge-gushi” are toasted rice balls infused with the aroma of soy sauce and served on a skewer accompanied by Moriguchi-zuke / Nara-zuke pickles. Inside the shop, you can also order “Juhyoya gohan”, a set menu consisting a main dish of grilled salmon preserved in sake lees, a small side dish, rice, and green tea made from local tea leaves ground carefully using a millstone.

Yamada Goheimochiten

What’s that on the roof...!? A hugely popular shop in Inuyama

more

A goheimochi shop on the castle town’s main street, “Hommachi-dori”. The shop’s goheimochi, grilled with home-made soy sauce paste containing sesame, walnuts and peanuts, creates a mouth-watering aroma.
It is so popular that it attracts long queues of people waiting to get it fresh from the grill. The shop has a wonderful atmosphere, and is registered as a National Tangible Cultural Property. Is that the shop’s cute mascot up there on the roof? No, it’s a Daikoku-sama holding a golden dango.

A stately wooden house with an Edo-period construction style
