The INUYAMA WALK

There are many historical buildings in Inuyama, including National Treasure Inuyama Castle.
In the suburbs, you will find such attractions as “Museum Meiji-Mura”, which has gathered together buildings of the Meiji period, and “Little World Museum of Man”, where you can experience cultures from all over the world, so going a little farther afield is also highly to be recommended.
