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.
