Nagoya Castle
Nagoya Castle is the preeminent symbol of Nagoya. To bring back the vibrant colors of 400-year-old artworks on the partitions that adorned the interior of the Hommaru (Castle Keep)Palace, the full-scale restorative reproduction project was commenced in 1992 (Heisei 4). This exhibition will captivate visitors with not only the artworks, but also the restorative reproduction process itself. In commemorative of the restorative construction of Hommaru (Castle Keep) Palace from January 2009, we will exhibit major works such as those in the entrance, the Omote-shoin (main drawing room) and the Taimen-jo (reception hall).
